The bachelor’s degree at the University of Andorra are taught mainly in Catalan, the official language of the Principality of Andorra, which is spoken by more than 7 million people. Doctoral candidates may carry out their research in Catalan or English, although the training is mainly in Catalan. The only teaching language for online bachelor’s degrees in collaboration with the Open University of Catalonia (UOC) is Catalan.
For this reason, a student who wants to study an official degree at the University of Andorra must know Catalan. Learning Catalan is easy for people to understand and speak if they already know a Romance language like Spanish, French, Italian or Portuguese. The UdA offers language support, learning resources and provides information about free courses available in the country. In addition, the university is aware that learning a language takes time, so it allows international students to speak and write in other languages during their first year.
