ERAM University School – Girona, Spain

Located in the new cultural factory Coma Cros de Salt, ERAM University School is a school attached to the University of Girona.

ERAM more specifically was founded in 1998 by The Joan Bosch Private Foundation, a non-profit organization, with the aim of creating new professional profiles in the field of audiovisual communication and offering a response to new emerging professions. It currently imparts three official degrees, Audiovisuals and Multimedia, Performing Arts and Audiovisual Communication and Media, each with a unique curriculum.

In the city of the four rivers, history and the mixture of modernity and antiquity converge in the old quarter. From the picturesque houses on the Onyar river and crowned by the impressive cathedral with the widest gothic nave in the world, you will walk through its narrow streets and find hidden treasures, like the Jewish quarter (the Call, one of the most important in Europe), the Carolingian wall or the Arab baths, as well as the outstanding works of the Noucentista period and modern art.
