Campus Spotlight: Barcelona 

Head to this Mediterranean paradise to jump into your new tech career. 

Juliette Erath - Tech Writer


If the unique mix of city and beach is exactly what you’re looking for, in addition to some mountains and incredible food, Barcelona’s the place for you. This cosmopolitan city on the Mediterranean benefits from its location in Cataluña, proximity to France and the rest of Europe, and easy access to the rest of Spain. In fact, we’re sure you’ll never run out of things to do or see in this paradise. 

Why Barcelona? 

Its multiculturalism is reflected in its food, which brings together all sorts of cuisines and cultures and architecture–ever heard of La Sagrada Família? You’ll also be able to visit La Pedrera, La Casa Amatller, La Casa Batlló and other masterpieces of which you’ve always dreamed. And if its beaches aren’t enough for you, the stunning beaches of Costa Brava are just an hour away, in addition to tons of smaller towns nearby. 

In the city itself, you’ll be awed by its accessible public transportation, boasting 24-hour metro service on weekends and night buses, in addition to widely available taxis. Its sunny and warm climate means you’ll always be able to have a drink on a terraza or explore the city on foot, visiting one of its many theaters, art exhibitions, museums, and more. 

Ironhack in Barcelona  

As the first bootcamp in Spain, we’re proud to offer campuses in both Madrid and Barcelona, giving you the chance to choose from part-time, full-time, or remote courses in these incredible cities. Located in Poblenou, just a few blocks from the beach, our Barcelona campus is in the heart of leading tech companies’ offices and surrounded by good food, culture, and opportunity. 

No matter if you choose remote, full-time, or part-time courses in Barcelona, Ironhack’s campus offers you something beyond your course; we offer events, chances to network and connect with your fellow Ironhackers, an awesome space to get your best work done, and much more. Unsure if you should take the full-time bootcamp? What about part-time? Or remote? Let’s discuss: 

  • Our full-time bootcamps are ideal for those looking to get a new job soon and can exclusively dedicate nine weeks to learning. If you want fast results, this is for you. 

  • Our part-time bootcamps are for those who can’t dedicate nine weeks to just the bootcamp; if you want to keep your job elsewhere or continue your studies in another institution, our part-time bootcamps are perfect for you. The results are the same as our full-time course, just spread out over more weeks to allow you time to handle your other commitments. 

  • Our remote bootcamps are an option for everyone, even if you’re already located near our campus. These courses offer more flexibility and start dates, in addition to language variations, to help you choose the perfect course for you. And don’t worry about missing out on our events or course help; remote students are welcome at campus any day of the week and can benefit from everything offered to in-person students.
