UCAM (Universidad Católica de Murcia) is a private university founded in 1996 with a clear mission: to train students with knowledge and skills to serve society, to contribute to the further expansion of human knowledge through research as an integral part of the development of man and mankind and to participate in the evangelical mission of the Catholic Church in the areas of education and culture.
Strategically located in Murcia, Spain, with a Campus of more than 15,000 students and around 1,000 professors, we are expanding worldwide to make one of our main objectives a reality: to promote a high-quality university education, with a representative presence in all continents. UCAM has a friendly and international environment in a wonderful Mediterranean framework.
The international vocation of Universidad Católica leads us to collaborate with universities from all corners of the planet, at every educational level: research, students and professors exchange and create international undergraduate and master´s programs in all specialities.
At UCAM, you will experience the dynamism and enthusiasm of the university community, top teaching technical equipment, the lovely surroundings of Jerónimos Monastery, or the sports culture with 21 elite teams competing at the top level. Also, you have a selection of English-taught programs and Spanish-taught programs to choose from.
Person to Person, Face to Face
UCAM students can count on personalized attention that fits their needs. The staff at the UCAM value the personal relationship in the context of learning, which is why each student is given a personal tutor and classes with a small number of classmates. The variety of the academic programs on offer, constantly adapting to the real needs of society and recognized by the European Higher Education Area, reflects this core guideline: each student is a reason for UCAM to continue its work of striving for perfection.
Learning in Action
UCAM empowers students to develop their own real-world skills. The campus’s top class infrastructure, labs, and studios together with the practical subjects on offer will get students ready to put the knowledge they acquire into action. Every student has to complete an internship in public or private institutions where they will have a taste of their future field of expertise. UCAM provides more than 90 research groups which work in close collaboration with enterprises such as Coca-Cola, Danone, Vodafone or Siemens.
The Elite in Sports
Welcome to the University of Sports in Spain. Following the Anglo-Saxon model, sport is part of UCAM’s DNA, having just been hailed as the Champion of Spanish Inter-University Championships for the 2nd consecutive year, with 76 medals (50 gold). UCAM can boast of its top athletes including Olympic medalists Mireia Belmonte and David Cal and World Champions such as Melanie Costa. The 21 federated teams sponsored and managed by UCAM include UCAM Murcia CB, a professional basketball team competing in the ACB Liga Endesa.
