The first non-public university to be established in the Comunitat Valenciana, the Valencia region 50 years ago . The University, privately run but at the service of the general public, has always stood out for its pioneering character, achieving a number of ‘firsts’. The first university in Valencia to offer programs in areas such as pharmacy, journalism and veterinary medicine. The first to offer dual degrees. The first to establish the role of the personal university tutor. The first to offer professional development grants during degree studies. The first to establish a new understanding of what a university should be. An innovative development strategy has turned CEU UCH into the most international university in the region. More than a third part of students at the university are from abroad (around 35%) and the university has a clear focus on preparing our students for today’s globalized world. Today, we have students from more than 90 countries on campus.
