What is our methodology?
The HyFlex experiential learning model responds to the digitalisation of higher education with a new educational ecosystem that combines in-person teaching with a virtual classroom in a flexible and frictionless way. In this model, all subjects feature a practical component, an extended classroom and a digital block. Experiential learning forms the basis of this model, in which you will learn by doing with an integrated and multidisciplinary approach that prepares you for a diverse and international world. Experiential learning allows you to acquire the knowledge, competencies and skills needed to thrive in your future profession and tackle any obstacles to social and digital transformation.
How will you learn?
Experiential learning is shaped by the Challenge Based Learning (CBL) methodology, whereby students collaborate with their professors to face real-life challenges and propose workable solutions. The model uses a cross-functional approach that pulls together all of the faculty’s subject areas, thereby encouraging business, law, communication and education students to collaborate across disciplines.
This methodology ensures our students can reap the benefits of a holistic and interdisciplinary education that allows them to develop the key competencies needed in the professional world, including critical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, entrepreneurship and verbal communication skills. This method also encourages students to develop their talent as both an individual and as part of a collective.
Students address these challenges via the Challenge Based School as well as Universidad Europea’s close collaboration with over 100 partners ranging from institutions and NGOs to companies. This approach allows students to receive both internal and external evaluation from professors and professionals alike. A number of clinics and labs are also available to help students explore methods for overcoming challenges.
In the business area, challenges are constructed through:
In addition to challenge-based learning, the business areas use other experiential learning methods including:
This approach will culminate with students completing professional internships at relevant companies in Spain.
Digital transformation in the classroom
Universidad Europea has digitally transformed its classrooms in a number of ways:
The extended classroom: The pandemic has transformed the way we teach. For this reason, technology including cameras, microphones and interactive whiteboards is present in all of our classrooms. This allows us to integrate in-person and virtual classrooms to create a new learning environment that facilitates interactions between in-person and remote students and their professors. It is an immersive experience that allows for full participation and interaction between students and professors, wherever they may be.
Virtualisation of practical learning: Practical application is not limited to activities carried out in our laboratories and simulation spaces, and is complemented by virtual laboratories and simulations. With access to specialised software and virtual reality resources that allow you to continue practicing as many times as you like.
The digital block: This is a digital space where our students can access additional and complementary training. Students can access digital, exclusive and distinctive content such as workshops, webinars and interactive resources that are designed by our top professors along with the participation of renowned professionals in the sector.

External internship regulations
Internships are a key component of your training. Acquiring experience after what you have learnt in your degree is the best way to enter the employment market. There are two types of internships: curricular—which are included in your study plan—and extracurricular—which you can do on a voluntary basis.
In order to complete curricular internships in companies, you will need to have 50% of the credits approved and to register the subject before starting your internship. These internships are monitored by the company and the internship coordinator, and interim and final reports are prepared for evaluation.
If you want to take your work experience to the next level before finishing your university education, you can pursue an extra-curricular internship. You can do them in any academic year, but keep in mind that internships are a formative complement to your studies; therefore, the more knowledge you have acquired throughout your studies, the more you will benefit from the internship experience.
Universidad Europea has signed over 3,000 agreements with different institutions, companies or financial institutions, such as Banco Santander, Deloitte, Adidas, Telefónica, Grupo Día, Accenture, Phillips Ibérica, Microsoft, PWC, Salesforce, etc.
Universidad Europea has 253 agreements for study abroad exchanges which sometimes allow for international internships, such as with the University of Berkeley or McGill.
