This communication is part of a broader project named 'Sensitivity about the perspective of gender of university students. Diagnosis and proposals”, which is financed by the program "Aids to Research in University Teaching REDICE 2018" of the University of Barcelona. Its main objective consists on evaluating the sensitivity about gender among the university students of different degrees in two universities of latitudes and very different economic, social and political contexts. In particular, we compare gender awareness in the degrees of Economics, Business Administration, Sociology, Political Science and History of the University of Barcelona (Spain) with the degrees of Economics, Business, Labor Relations and History of the University of Cartagena de Indias (Colombia). This comparison between such different contexts aims to help our understanding of how to improve the implementation of a gender perspective in university studies in general. The University of Barcelona is a public university in a socio-political context where gender equity would be a defining feature of development, while the University of Cartagena de Indias (Colombia) is a small public university in a context in which equity of gender is underdeveloped. However, this multiethnic and multicultural university is very politicized and sensitized on gender issues.

We analyze the awareness on gender issues of the students of the two universities in two different moments of their academic cycle: in the first year, when they start their studies at university, and in the fourth year, at the end of the degree. The analysis is based on a survey with forty questions. Twenty of them are about the profile of the students and their families as well as their socioeconomic context; the rest are questions about sensitivity, awareness and knowledge on gender issues. These surveys have already been applied to a sample of 1650 students. Here we present the main conclusions of these first surveys.
