The University consists of nineteen faculties, which offer undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses in social sciences, humanities, and natural sciences.

What is student life like?

From the school: An exciting tempo of life is created at the University by such things as its laboratories equipped in line with international standards, a large number of research centers, magazines, student debating societies, foreign lectures, or events organized by the Students’ Association and the Center for Information, Vocational Guidance and Professional Counselling, exhibitions and concerts. Besides these, students can take part in extra-curricular activities organized by the University and by the Students’ Association and can take the opportunity to visit important UB attractions, such as the “Dimitrie Brândză” Botanical Garden, The Museum of the University of Bucharest, or the Hațeg International UNESCO Geopark in Hunedoara county. The University of Bucharest takes great interest in providing its students with the resources necessary for leading a healthy and active life. Thus, UB’s Physical Education Department offers students the possibility to practice sports like tennis, basketball, football, body-building, aerobics, or sports dance, classes held in the sports halls and playing fields of the University. The students are an inexhaustible source of energy and UB supports their projects, offering the necessary resources for these to take shape.
