Well, because this city has the privilege of being cosmopolitan, it has an internationally recognised architecture, culture and gastronomy, it is a well-connected city and, of course, the country's design capital.

Barcelona is a city with an open spirit that offers its inhabitants a great quality of life.

Barcelona is also known as a city that lives for design, which is a discipline that permeates the entire urban space with public facilities (Disseny Hub), museums (Museu del Disseny), art galleries, associations (FAD, BCD), halls of exhibitions and showrooms, as well as restaurants, bookstores or establishments of all kinds that distil their own identity through their furniture, lighting, commercial signs, etc. The city is a real magnet for creative people and designers from all over the world who are attracted by the latest trends and sees the ecosystem that surrounds them as a stimulus to develop their creativity, especially on the dates close to the Barcelona Design Week, which takes place during June. All this makes the city one of the best European destinations for students.
