Tourism Degree in Barcelona testimonials

My experience at EUM has been very good. The teachers are very approachable and provide great help: tutorials for revision, support information, etc. Being a tourism student I can say that the subjects are very well balanced and the languages are very dynamic and easy to learn.


Lucía Núñez

Student of 2nd Degree in Tourism

Know me

I was expecting a different, more difficult beginning, because I didn't know any classmates or teachers, but today I can say that I have a wonderful group of classmates, all of whom are great professionals. Of course, by professionals we have to mention the teachers, ALWAYS with a personalised treatment, who encourage the best of you and help you at all times with any difficulties. Without a doubt, if I could explain to the me of 4 years ago, I wouldn't have had any doubts about choosing EUM. I don't like goodbyes at all and I know it will be difficult to say goodbye to this beautiful stage.

Student of 4th Degree in Tourism

Know me

In the first year of my degree I started an internship and that helped me when I finished my degree. Thanks to the internship experience, I started working with a fixed-term contract. The university always helped me, they sent me notes from both classmates and professors, and for the Final Degree Project, since I was unable to attend the face-to-face tutorials, they supported me and helped me to get through it without problems.
