1. Excellence, integral education and personalized attention

We are committed to academic and professional excellence, as well as to the integral formation of our students. University is more than what happens in the classroom and personalized teaching plays a key role in our educational project.

At University CEU Cardenal Herrera we firmly believe that first year is an opportunity for students to set their way forward, something that will determine the path they will follow during their university years. We offer assistance to future students even before they set foot on campus through tutorials, Social Media and a close, personal and professional service with their faculties and the admissions team.

The academic staff at University CEU Cardenal Herrera provide a comprehensive education with the necessary balance between theory and practical training, ensuring a broad and humanistic formation that goes beyond the classroom.

2. Committed to languages

Learning languages is another of our main priorities. In addition to learning or improving their Spanish skills (the second most widely spoken language in the world), our students have access to the numerous courses that are offered by our Languages Service every year:

  • Chinese
  • Spanish
  • French
  • German

3. Practical training & employment

The student's first working experiences are normally carried out within the university's facilities, which rigorously reconstruct the future professional scenarios of the different degree courses. In addition to this, the university also arranges professional training experiences for our students in both Spanish and international institutions.

4. National and International exchanges

During their academic years, students have the opportunity to study at other European universities under the Erasmus+ scheme, as well as other national and international exchange programmes.

University CEU Cardenal Herrera currently has more than 250 bilateral agreements signed with European universities. In addition, we have signed various agreements with universities in America.

Our Mobility Office organizes informative sessions throughout the academic year to keep our students up-to-date with the latest international learning opportunities offered to them. They also provide an efficient, close-at-hand support to our outgoing students.

5. Facilities

We offer our students the best facilities and equipment to complete their training (laboratories, a dental clinic, a veterinary hospital, a farm, several computer rooms, a library, etc..).

6. International Vocation

More than 1300 students at University CEU Cardenal Herrera are international. Coming from all over the world, they have chosen our institution because of both its academic excellence and unique location.

International students become integrated into our community just like the locals with full access to the wide range of services and opportunities that our university offers. We also offer exclusive services for international students that are adapted to their particular needs.
