Our governance, academic and management structures
Welcome to the CEU community. As the Rector of theCEU Cardenal Herrera University, I represent a group of professionals who, while working in very different areas, have the University’s students at the heart of everything they do – students who have entrusted us with the most decisive period of their lives as they seek to build their futures.
Throughout the day-to-day work of all the lecturers, researchers, and technical staff is the desire to transmit those values which will enable our students to fully realize their talents. We are proud of the fact that the people we educate will be both exemplary in their professional activities and committed on a personal level to making society better and fairer.
A key part of the University’s identity is to provide as much support on the human level as possible to our students, in order to facilitate their professional and personal development: this is achieved through the personalized interaction between students and lecturers and tutors and the opportunities made available to enable all areas of university life to be enjoyed to the full.
The University is certainly a place for the education of excellent professionals, but even more importantly, we aim to produce fully rounded individuals, who possess the values of Christian humanism, the basis for all our thinking.
As a not-for-profit educational institution, it is our desire to give everyone who wishes to study here the chance to do so, regardless of their financial situation. For this reason, the CEU San Pablo University Foundation, which we form part of, has established a grant policy which makes it the private educational institution which makes the largest investment in this area in Spain.
We possess outstanding facilities for the lectures and practical training of our students; we provide training in English, an indispensable skill for all of today’s university students; we have around three thousand agreements in place with companies and institutions of all kinds to enhance the future employability of our students; we have reshaped all our educational activities to meet the demands of the European Higher Education Area, implementing new teaching methods in which students take the central role in the learning process. The improvements made to teaching, to university services and even in our research activities have all been made for the purpose of making a direct impact on the personal and professional development of our students.
With more than 40 years of experience behind us, we continue to be committed to serving the society around us. We are working hard every day to open up new areas in which we can demonstrate this commitment. Every day, our CEU community is enriched by all those who visit us.
Values, attitudes and skills, in a personalized way.
It does not matter what you have, but what you are.
Everything you need for your training, at your fingertips.
At the service of your growth and of all our surroundings.
