Founded in 1531 during the reign of Charles V, the University of Granada has always been an excellent example of historic, intellectual and cultural tradition since its foundation for almost 500 years ago. From the beginning, the university has proved to have an influence on the social environment of the city, in that it has become an independent educational centre and one of the most important learning centres among the main European universities.
Currently, the University has seven campuses which demonstrate the great diversity of the university and guarantee a wide range of visual effects, from the oldest to the most modern architecture.
Training courses at the University of Granada are the widest in Europe, which explains the high number of students (more than 70,000). A significant percentage of them are students from foreign universities.
During its growth, the UGR had to adapt to social changes, thus going to be internationally recognized in all university fields: teaching, research, cultural and services to its members and its environment. That is why the UGR is the first destination of choice for European exchange students.
