There are many University offers at your disposal in Spain (II)


As we have already seen, Spain has a great deal to offer in what concerns to universities. In this post, we provide you with some information about the best universities of Alicante.

In the province of Alicante, there are two state universities and a private one. The biggest of these three is the University of Alicante, located in San Vicente del Raspeig and founded in 1979. Alongside it runs the university centres of Benisa, Biar, Concentaina, Jijona, La Marina, Dénia, Elda, Petrel, Torrevieja, La Nucía, Orihuela and Villena and if offers more than 50 master degree programmes and more than 70 research departments. Among these departments, we have the important fields of Social Sciences and Law, Technology, Education and Health Sciences.

In addition, it is a well-known fact that its campus is so large, and it offers more than 6 faculties, green areas, libraries, cafés and restaurants. This all helps the students enjoy university life.

On the one hand, it is remarkable because of the prestige of its degrees in Law, Nursing, Architecture and Engineering and, also because of the double degrees such are DADE (Law and Busines Administration, TADE (Tourism and Business Administration), DECRIM (Law and Crimelogy) and Informatic Engineer and Business direction and administration. On the other hand, there are simultaneous studies in physiology degrees, which offers the possibility to carry out foreign studies whether your course 120 more credits (ECT).

Another important aspect of this University is the fact that it is given a lot of relevance to  sport, having different teams which even compete at a regional category. Of course, there is a running track, a gym, a volleyball court, paddle tennis court and a rowing team.   It has a great number of participants (30.000 annual students).

Secondly, we have the Miguel Hernández University, founded in 1996 in Elche. It was meant to separate different degrees from Alicante to this city. Its most famous campus is the one in Elche, but we can also find one in Orihuela, San Juan and Altea. Among these we have Medicine, Pharmacy, Pysiology, Audiovisual Communication and different Engineering degrees.

Also there are different libraries and the necessary facilities. Regarding the research productivity, a study carried out by the IUNE Observatory, this University was reputable due to the neurologic field, the biotechnology and the ICTs.

However, we don’t only have wonderful facilities that offer a great deal of services. Furthermore, its campus is known for offering different photography courses, guided visits and cultural activities. In fact this university owns a radio programme run by students. With regards to sports and interchange programmes it is also great.

Thirdly, we have the private university called CEU Cardenal Herrera, with a main head office in Valencia.  CEU Elche was founded in 1994 and until 2000 was ascribed to the University of Alicante. This place has a great deal to offer to its students because it is the number one in the ranking of top ten universities in the Valencian Community with more than 6.098 labour conventions.

That is all about the universities you can find in our Province. As you can see, you can choose among a wide selection of university degrees. In the next post we will include some information about the universities in Murcia.
