Strategic Plan

Our goal is to consolidate our position as a university which is global, innovative in spirit and entrepreneurial in its actions, and which transmits these attitudes to the university community, so that it can, in turn, pass these on to society. We want to be a university which is committed to developing its valued staff in every way – in the intellectual, professional and human dimensions – and to seeing them continue to improve.

We want to be a university which has an impact on society, both directly through its actions and through its graduates, contributing to its improvement. We want to stand out on the international stage of higher education.


The total number of staff at CEU UCH amounts to 1262 people, comprising both academic and support staff.

Of the 992 staff with teaching duties at CEU UCH, 410 also have research duties.

Meeting student demand



Communication channels with students

Campus Life is the program that CEU UCH has set up to support students’ well-being and integration, as well as encouraging their personal and professional development.

The main communication channels for students with CEU UCH, with regard to university life and completing their educational experience, are:

  • International, entrepreneurial and personal tutors
  • Group co-ordinators
  • Faculty management team and lecturers

The University Guidance and Disability Service (SOUAD) can provide advice and guidance regarding personal, academic and professional matters.

The CEU UCH University Ombudsman is responsible for protecting the rights and freedoms of academic and support staff and students in procedures operated by the different University bodies and services.

Grants and scholarships

The CEU San Pablo University Foundation is the private educational institution which devotes the most resources to grants and scholarships in Spain. As a not-for-profit foundation, CEU has devoted a large part of its resources to assisting talented students who wish to undertake their education at one of the Foundation’s universities or schools.

The CEU Cardenal Herrera University is an advocate of the culture of hard work and perseverance. We believe in the value of giving opportunities to those who have set themselves a goal and are willing to strive to attain it. Every year, our students benefit from around two and a half million euros in grants. You can explore which grant might be the right one for you by clicking on these links:



Universities are the engines of progress in science and research and, therefore, the drivers of the major social and economic changes which have occurred during recent decades. The generation of wealth and increasing social welfare is inextricably linked to our ability to generate knowledge via the production of high-quality research – this can then be converted into technology and techniques, which can in turn be efficiently transferred to the economic system. For this reason, the CEU Cardenal Herrera University supports the work of established researchers and seeks to train early-career researchers via the Research Activity Support Plan.
