About University of Granada:

Founded in 1531 by Emperor Charles V - and with roots that can be traced back further to the madrasahs of the Nasrid Kingdom - the University of Granada (UGR) is the fourth largest university in Spain, catering for approximately 80,000 students. The university is made up of five schools – Building Engineering, Architecture, Civil Engineering, Information, and Telecommunications – within which teaching and learning is divided across 22 faculties and 116 departments. Around 75 different qualifications are taught at UGR, including 68 master’s courses and 116 doctorate programmes. Located across five campuses in Granada, all within the old part of the city, students are taught in some of the city’s most historic buildings, imbuing their studies with a rich sense of heritage and tradition. UGR also has an overseas presence in the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla in North Africa. Ceuta is home to its faculties of Health Sciences, Education and Humanities, while the faculties of Social Sciences, Nursing, Education, Economy and Technology are based in Melilla. With its 12 separate research institutes, the university prides itself on having a strong research focus. As an active participant in the Spanish Research Programme, UGR supports more than 150 research projects and the country’s Ministry of Innovation, Science and Business has awarded financial support to 78 of its Projects of Excellence. Through the Erasmus programme, around 2,000 international students attend UGR every year (the most of any European university) while its Centre for Modern Languages welcomes over 10,000 overseas students annually. The Centre, which was established in 1992, maintains partnerships with over 20 universities and study abroad organisations in the US and Canada, as well as numerous European institutions. Among other prestigious university networks, UGR is a member of the Coimbra Group, an association of long-established multidisciplinary European universities of high international standing.
