Harbour.Space University

Welcome to Harbour.Space, Europe’s state-of-the-art university focusing on technology, entrepreneurship and design to co-create the leaders of the future.

The fast-paced growth in innovation, communication and technology is forcing a quiet revolution in education, leaving many traditional universities struggling to keep up. At Harbour.Space, we aim to redefine the learning experience by offering active experience-based education driven by some of the worlds’ top industry leaders.

We offer progressive Foundation, Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes, where real-world problems take centre stage in the classroom, not textbook challenges. 

Our academic year is divided into 15 intense 3-week modules and acts as an accelerator for entrepreneurs, an innovation lab for creatives, and a hands-on training centre for tech-lovers. 

Students are encouraged to take on an international and interdisciplinary mindset, preparing them to meet and exceed the demands of the professional workforce.


Harbour.Space is a university for the innovative, the future-minded and the change-hungry. Our philosophy is based on three fundamental pillars - a link to the industry, a modern and agile educational model, and a network of exceptional innovators and entrepreneurs ready to co-create the businesses of the future.

We are the makers and pioneers of our fields and have top industry leaders as our students’ teachers and mentors. We think big, take chances and disrupt industries by reimagining how we learn, connect and do business. 

A personalised, hands-on approach is at the heart of our interactive learning philosophy. This creates an educational experience that transcends that of traditional education institutes and prepares students for the jobs of the future. 

By collaborating with innovative international experts, successful entrepreneurs, leading scientists and creative change-makers from around the globe, we can develop our modern creative and technical programmes based on the industry needs of tomorrow.

With campuses in Barcelona and Bangkok, we aim to nurture and accelerate talent, supported by the most knowledgeable and successful people in the technology and design industries. Watch our Graduation Video to see how our students describe their Harbour.Space experience.

Find out what students say about Harbour.Space University


Irakli - Master in Digital Marketing

I did my masters in Digital Marketing at Harbour.Space University in Barcelona. Probably the best investment I've made in recent years. The value you'll get from this university is not necessarily by learning different tools and strategies but rather from the exposure to the industry and top people working there (which I think is what exactly Master's courses should be about). Also, you will enjoy sunny Barcelona, lots of festivals (party, design, tech) and conferences where the university can get you free access to (OFFF, Sonar, also discounts for other festivals) with a community of students from all over the world.  After Harbour.Space I immediately got a job in my home city. Thanks to one of my teachers, I also got a couple of interviews at Google.


Mayra - Master in Interaction Design

There is an amazing environment of constant growth and sharing. Classmates are so talented and everyone is ready to help and give you real feedback. It is not a typical Interaction Design programme, is tough, teachers will push your limits but is worth it every time.


Pranav - Bachelor in Cyber Security

Harbour.Space truly fascinated me. Its innovative methods of teaching, unlike anything I'd ever seen before, pushed the boundaries of what I could learn from the field of cybersecurity. In a rapidly evolving cyber world, it's pointless to refer to books written 20 years ago. That isn't what Harbour-Space offers. Here I was able to grasp and put into practice the ever-expanding tools and skills required in the world of cybersecurity.
