From 25 to 27 October the URV participated in the NAJAH Abu Dhabi education fair, where it also promoted its Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry taught entirely in English
NAJAH Abu Dhabi is held in the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) in the capital of the United Arab Emirates and this year involved 162 local and international higher education institutions from more than 20 countries. It is aimed at potential students who are interested in beginning a degree course. The URV was the only Spanish university to attend.
From 25 to 27 October, Joan J. Carvajal, vice-dean of the Faculty of Chemistry, and Titón Sancho, member of the Master’s Support Office, provided attendees with information on the bachelor’s courses on offer at the URV and in particular the Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry taught entirely in English (20 places). Since creating the new English-taught chemistry degree, the faculty has identified the United Arab Emirates as a potential source of students for the new degree in chemistry, which has been offered for the first time during the current academic year and has 17 students registered from the Tarragona region.
During the fair there were informative seminars, including one by Joan J. Carvajal on the Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry taught in English by lecturers who are participating in the Pla Dang (Teaching in English Plan). Students interested in this course for the 2018-19 academic year can pre-register by applying to the Catalan Government independently of the Chemistry Degree taught in Catalan and Spanish. The Faculty of Chemistry is also working to encourage applications from students in China.
