A group of students of Catalan from British universities make a cultural journey to Mallorca

This Thursday is the day of the welcome ceremony for a group of British students taking part in a cultural journey to Mallorca promoted by the IRL with the support of the Government of the Balearic Islands, through the Culture, Participation and Sports Council Language Policy Department. Twenty students from the universities of Liverpool, Durham and Newcastle will be in Mallorca until 3 July.


The cultural journey began this Wednesday, 28 June after a guided tour of the old quarter of Palma accompanied by the historian Gaspar Valero. On Thursday 29 June there will be a welcome ceremony, with the director general of Language Policy for the Balearic Islands, Marta Fuxà, and the director of the Institut Ramon Llull Language and Universities Department, Josep-Anton Fernàndez. The event will take place in the auditorium of the Mallorca Museum, in Palma, from 17.00, Thursday 29 June.  

The participants in this year’s journey are students of Catalan at the universities of Liverpool, Durham and Newcastle. They will all be able to take part in cultural activities organised during the five days of the journey. They include the guided tour of the centre of Palma, an excursion in the Serra de Tramuntana, a Mallorcan gastronomic workshop at the University of the Balearic Islands Catering School and an encounter with the Mallorcan human pyramids, among many others.

Last year the first of these journeys was held to commemorate the seventh centenary of the death of Ramon Llull, with the title ‘In the footsteps of Ramon Llull .

Catalan studies abroad

In the UK there are twenty universities offering Catalan studies as part of their programme. Of those, fourteen receive aid from the Institut Ramon Llull to cover the teaching. The institute complements that subsidy with other lines of support, including teacher training, the organization of academic and cultural activities and programmes for students of Catalan abroad and summer residential language courses.

This year the cooperation with Government of the Balearic Islands for the joint organization of the summer language course in the Balearic Islands will be renewed. It will take place in Palma from 3 to 15 September with 20 students from the universities of the IRL network.

Until 3 July they will be engaging in cultural activities
