The new BAC learning formulas survey

Dear all,

We are creating the new BAC learning formulas that we call INTERNSHIP professional + academic courses and ACADEMIC courses + professional internship.
This learning formulas have always existed at the Barcelona Architecture Center since its foundation but they never were presented officially as the learning package to the bigger number of students of our collaborating universities.
This formulas could be applied to individual students or to a group of students from different countries and universities.

Before sending the introduction brochure to all our collaborating universities in order to give professional practice opportunity to all our students who is  taking the academic classes at the BAC, we wanted to ask you what do you think about it.
Write us at bacprogram@coac.net with your comments or just click in the checkbox below, if you find this formulas VERY INTERESTING / INTERESTING or NOT INTERESTING.

THANK YOU and enjoy your summer !
