University of Granada

The founding of the University of Granada was granted by Papal Bull, issued in 1531, establishing a Christian university to follow in the stead of the, until then, Islamic Madrassa, dating from 1349. Since then, the UGR – drawing on its historical roots – has gradually grown and developed into what it has become today: a public higher-education institution that is committed to quality and excellence in the areas of teaching, learning and research. In line with this, the university has, throughout its history, become increasingly active in the transfer of scientific, social advancement, sustainable development and, above all, internationalization. Numerous national and international ranking agencies that evaluate higher education teaching and research have placed the UGR among the top universities in Spain, as well as including it within the top 3% of the best higher education institutions worldwide. Indeed, according to the Shanghai ranking, the UGR appears as one of the world’s top 500 universities. University of Granada is one of Spain’s top universities, and is also a major actor in the area of higher education both in Europe and Latin America. The study programmes available at the UGR are among the most extensive in Europe, which helps to explain our high student numbers: around 65,000, of which some 10,000 are international students. The UGR is involved in a wide range of international projects and networks, as well as internationally-renowned exchange programmes.
