Universidad de Granada (UGR)

  • Description
  • 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.

    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.


    The com­mit­ment to high-​quality research has placed the Uni­ver­si­dad de Granada in a promi­nent posi­tion in terms of national rank­ings. The financ­ing of 346 research groups illus­trates this com­mit­ment. Through the Span­ish Research Pro­gramme, as well as other national pro­grammes and organ­i­sa­tions, the Uni­ver­sity sup­ports 165 research projects, and the Min­istry of Inno­va­tion, Sci­ence and Busi­ness has pro­vided finan­cial sup­port to 78 Projects of Excellence.

    The links with the busi­ness world oper­ate through the Research Results Trans­fer Office (OTRI).

    The Sci­en­tific Instru­men­ta­tion Cen­tre (CIC) offers var­i­ous ser­vices to sup­port research, focus­ing in par­tic­u­lar on exper­i­men­tal subjects.

    Col­lab­o­ra­tion on inter­na­tional projects, as well as seek­ing resources and part­ners, is man­aged through the Inter­na­tional Projects Office (OPI).

    In addi­tion to the research work of the depart­ments, the UGR has 12 research insti­tutes, as well as other spe­cific research units and cen­tres that focus their work on spe­cific areas.

    Inter­na­tional relations

    For many years, the UGR has pro­moted a sig­nif­i­cant inter­na­tional activ­ity through the Vice-Rector’s Office for Inter­na­tional Rela­tions. 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 United States, Canada, Latin Amer­ica, Cen­tral and East­ern Europe, the Mid­dle East, Mediter­ranean coun­tries, Aus­tralia, Ocea­nia and Asia.

    The Uni­ver­si­dad de Granada is a mem­ber of, or is involved at var­i­ous lev­els in, the fol­low­ing Inter­na­tional Net­works and Associations:

    *Redamed: Net­work for the Analy­sis of the Socioe­co­nomic and Demo­graphic Dynam­ics of the Mediter­ranean World *Ibero-​American Uni­ver­sity Council
