In Barcelona School of Nautical Studies, courses are also given in Catalan or Spanish depending on the lecturer’s choice. Although these languages have the same Latin origin and are very similar, the UPC offers both Catalan and Spanish courses so that you can learn the differences and be able to master them in order to follow the different courses successfully.
