The University of Barcelona offers prospective students a wide range of course offerings tailored to their needs and to the needs of society in general, thus placing the University at the head of academic fields in very different degree areas, from technology on the one hand to art on the other. The University of Barcelona (UB) is Spain’s leading research university, publishing more research than any other Spanish institution with the exception of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) (Third European Report on Science and Technology Indicators). The guidelines for research policy are drawn up by the Office of the Vice-Rector for Research. Research activities are managed by the UB office Research Management (OGR), which is in charge of national research programs, the UB office International Research Projects (OPIR), which is responsible for European projects, and the Bosch i Gimpera Foundation (FBG), which oversees knowledge transfer and relations with the business sector. The Science and Technology Centres (CCiTUB) are a group of UB centres that support research both in the university and in other public and private institutions.
The Universidad Pablo de Olavide of Seville is a public university committed to offer high quality education. It is located in a single campus equipped with the latest technologies. In its 140 hectares it combines teaching, research, and social and sport activities, which makes it a different alternative.
Although the Public University of Navarre is a young institution, which was formed just two decades ago, in actual fact it represents the bringing together and continuation of the university education that was then being imparted in Navarre under the public authorities, and some of these educational programs even date back to the 19th century. In this short, yet intense period of time, the University has created campuses in Pamplona and Tudela, equipped for education and research, and supported by a highly-qualified group of professors and administration personnel.
