The Universidad de Granada, founded in 1531, continues a long teaching tradition, the roots of which can be traced back to the madrasahs of the last Nasrid Kingdom.

The University is a vibrant presence in the city of Granada, benefiting from the distinctive beauty of its environment and a privileged geographical location due to its proximity to the Sierra Nevada, an excellent ski resort and the Mediterranean coast, with several major tourist sites, including Motril, Almuñécar and Salobreña.

In Granada, there are four University Campuses, as well as the “Campus Centro”, in which all the centres spread throughout the historic part of the city are brought together. The UGR's policy of using buildings of historical and cultural value has enriched its heritage, as well as promoting the restoration and maintenance of these buildings. In addition to this emphasis on more traditional elements, the Health Science Technological Park, which is still being developed, demonstrates our strong commitment to innovation by promoting interaction with technological bio-health companies and favouring high-quality healthcare and biomedical knowledge. There are two other UGR Campuses in the cities of Ceuta and Melilla, in Northern Africa.

Over 60,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students study at the UGR, with another 20,000 students taking additional courses, language courses, summer courses etc. The University employs 3650 lecturers and over 2000 administration, technical and maintenance staff.

At present, courses for 66 different qualifications are taught in the 28 teaching centres of the UGR. The courses are taught across 123 departments. The Postgraduate School offers 83 master's courses, 58 doctorate programmes and 130 additional courses.

The commitment to high-quality research has placed the Universidad de Granada in a prominent position in terms of national rankings.

The importance of the presence of international students is most clearly demonstrated by the 606 mobility agreements signed with European Higher Education institutions and the ERASMUS mobility programmes; the UGR is the leading European university in terms of receiving students and the second Spanish university in terms of the mobility of its own students. The University is also involved in major exchange programmes with universities in the whole world.
