Besides, the University of Murcia, built in 1277, which has a total of 34.000 students and a great International and National recognition. All the state universities offer a lot of different degrees, double degrees, masters programmes and courses.

On the other hand, for those who prefer a different source of learning, there are many private universities (around 32), all of them with great prestige as well.
