Our teachers are trailblazers in the real world

inspiring and vibrant cities

Barcelona

Located on the Mediterranean coast has become the place where imagination flourishes, turning dreams into reality.

As an international student, you can breathe the city's startup culture while enjoying the sunny beaches.

It’s also one of the most thriving cities in terms of creativity and innovation and has been ranked among the top 15 start-up cities across Europe. We can’t think of a better place than Barcelona to continue to inspire our students outside the University walls.

Bangkok

The capital of Thailand is famed for its rich history, culture, and cuisine. Bangkok is more than a nice place to visit, offers a cosmopolitan blend of tradition and modernity.

It’s a regional hub for commerce and home to many industries and companies with a global presence.

Thanks to our collaboration with the Thai Chamber of Commerce, Harbour.Space is in a unique position to offer access to established business networks and industry leaders in Thailand and Southeast Asia in general.

Anastasia Sarapulova

Master in High-tech Entrepreneurship

Without exaggeration, this year in Harbour.Space was a beautiful journey worth taking. I was surrounded by smart, unique and inspiring people throughout the whole year. Each of you
will always stay deep inside my heart, and I am happy I have managed to develop such deep friendships and connections here. This year was full of challenges, personal development, lessons and happiness, as well as disappointments. But as we all know, there are no ups without downs.

Anna Egorova

Master in Interaction Design

Harbour.Space was a great experience, an intense year and full of new knowledge, hard work, short nights but also friends and tremendous fun and learning. I am grateful for the opportunity to sharpen my skills and to understand how to develop my career. Personally, I experienced how important it is to stay in balance throughout the modules. I hope we keep in touch as we have become one big family this year.

Margherita Giottoli

Master in Interaction Design

This year has been challenging, but it has also been one of the best of my life. I grew as a designer and as a person. I’ll remember the friendships I made, the memorable moments, and learning not to give up. Harbour.Space is an amazing place. I’m grateful for all my inspiring classmates, you were the highlight of my year, and I can’t wait to see the cool things you’ll all work on. I hope our paths cross again. Harbour.Space and all the Spacers will be forever in my heart.

Mayra Sánchez

Master in Interaction Design

Harbour.Space was a space where I got inspired, challenged and discovered my potential. It was a pleasure to learn and share with such incredible and talented professionals with whom I hope to meet in the future. I can’t wait to see what you will create next. Thank you for all the amazing moments we shared. Until then, best of luck and keep challenging yourselves!

Nada Allouch

Master in Digital Marketing

To me, Harbour.Space is more than just school - it’s a place where I grew a bit more every day. Whether it’s in the classroom, the kitchen or the study areas, every interaction is a moment of exchange and learning. It’s the kind of place where you randomly have the most inspiring conversations with people. For that, I’m intensely grateful for making it to Harbour.Space.
