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 via an integrated and multidisciplinary approach that prepares you for a diverse and international world. Experiential learning allows you to acquire the knowledge, competencies and values needed to thrive in your future profession and to meet the challenges posed by 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 workplace 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, both as an individual and as part of a collective.

Students address these challenges via the Challenge-Based School and Universidad Europea’s close collaboration with more than 100 partners including institutions, NGOs and 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 area of communication, many of the challenges are linked to:

  • Europea Media. Media Lab: a TV channel, radio station and newspaper where students create various programmes and broadcast events. Every year they put on Communication Week, sponsored by UNESCO for its work in promoting communication and culture. It’s one of the most relevant university forums in Spain and across the field of journalism, specifically audiovisual, advertising, corporate and international communication. Leading professionals and companies in these industries have participated in Communication Week, many of whom were trained in our very classrooms.
  • Pitching Minds. Elite creative advertising group. Selected students, with guidance from their professors, pitch at national and international advertising festivals. Our University is the most awarded university with more than 50 prizes and honourable mentions.
  • Shooting Minds. Elite fiction group. After winning an annual competition, selected Audiovisual Communication students create an audiovisual product and compete professionally in the top short-film and documentary competitions and festivals.
  • Consulting Lab. A specialised consultancy in which large companies, startups, institutions and NGOs pose interesting challenges. Students work—often in multidisciplinary groups—to find answers to complex problems, working collaboratively with their professors to develop solutions.

In addition to challenge-based learning, other examples of experiential learning methodologies in the area of communication are:

  • The case method, which allows students to apply theory to practice via cases that deal with real events. Thanks to teamwork with colleagues and the guidance of their professor, students improve their skills and better assimilate their knowledge by seeing theory put into practice.
  • Software-powered simulated environments where the student is immersed in an interactive world of real learning, thereby inputting theoretical concepts into a visual reality. This allows students to test out theories and make mistakes in a safe environment, thereby increasing their confidence while learning for themselves what works and doesn’t. In addition, students develop cross-functional skills such as leadership, decision-making, teamwork and more.
  • Project-based learning is a learning strategy whereby students acquire knowledge and skills by completing a real project. This is usually a group project that is solved by integrating each participant’s unique skill set, immersing students in a similar environment to the one they will find later on in their professional careers. The project is assigned by the professor, but the student is given autonomy when preparing and presenting their project. This approach ensures the student is in charge of their own learning process.
  • Cooperative learning is a method that allows students to work together in the classroom to achieve common goals. Students learn in a social environment where they must reach a consensus on how to solve tasks proposed by their professor.
  • Problem-based learning allows students to learn by researching and reflecting on a relevant problem within a professional context. The professors pose a problem, which the student will then investigate. Students will look for an adequate solution and, as a result, will develop critical thinking, decision-making, creativity, and verbal and written communication skills, as well as the best strategies for learning.

This approach will culminate with students completing professional internships at relevant companies and media outlets 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. This is an immersive experience that allows students and professors to fully interact and participate from 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 differential 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.

Academic calendar



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 your curricular internships, you need to have passed 50% of the program credits and enrol on the related class 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 extracurricular 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.
