The CEU Universities are located in Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona. CEU is the largest private educational group in Spain and the only one with three universities in its structure. With over 85 years of experience, CEU guarantees a unique experience as it is the only academic institution that offers education to students ranging from 3-year-old children to influential executives at its 25 centres. We work for our foundational objective of training elites, thus influencing and transmiting the values of Christian humanism to society.
CEU provides a comprehensive education in line with its Christian Humanism values. Our inherent values speak to our commitment to providing a personalized educational experience that includes tutoring and integrated programmes. These values drive our commitment to society through an extensive scholarship programme and pioneering academic volunteer initiatives around the world. These values have also translated into research that has contributed to the professional and humanist evolution of society today.
Inspired by the values of Christian Humanism, CEU offers our students a comprehensive education that is guided by freedom and tolerance as well as the firm belief that the world needs clear ideas and principles that can contribute to academic debate, enriching the university experience. CEU is involved in issues around the world and firmly believes in the need to improve the lives of our fellow citizens. CEU is not for students whose only goal is to find work upon graduation. Instead, it is the perfect place for students who seek to be the best versions of themselves.
The institution comprises 25 educational centers ranging from primary education to postgraduate degrees and vocational training. We currently have centers in Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Murcia, Castellón, Alicante, Vigo, Jerez, Elche, Sevilla, Vitoria and Valladolid.

Degrees that qualify for practice in regulated professions, such as architecture, may require certain specific requirements in other countries, which derive from their own legislation.
WHAT DO I NEED TO APPLY TO CEU UNIVERSITIES?
-Students who have studied in the educational systems of European Union countries or countries that have established agreements with Spain in this regard and meet the academic requirements of their educational systems to access their universities. These students will have to apply for the Credential of the Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED).

To access our degrees, it is not necessary to have studied a certain high school specialization; but it is true that for the entrance exam, some options are more appropriate than others, due to the content of the exam.
WHAT ARE THE ECTS (EUROPEAN CREDIT TRANSFER SYSTEM)?
Among the measures taken for the creation of the European Higher Education Area is the establishment of the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) in official undergraduate and graduate degrees.
In this system, the hours that the students dedicate to the study activity will be valued. In this activity, which will be between 25 and 30 hours per credit, the time dedicated to teaching hours, study hours, tutorials, seminars, works, practices, projects, as well as those required for the preparation and completion of exams, will be included.
The advantage of the ECTS credits is that, since they are the same unit of measurement in all of the universities of the new European Higher Education Area, it is much easier to compare the academic load of the degrees, facilitating student mobility and the recognition of studies.
DO THE STUDIES INCLUDE INTERNSHIPS?
All degrees include practical subjects in the study plan and some of them also include mandatory internships in companies (curricular internships).
TO HOW MANY SUBJECTS DO I HAVE TO ENROLL FOR THE FIRST YEAR?
In general, the student has to enroll for all the subjects of the first year.
IF I HAVE ANY DIFFICULTIES IN MY STUDIES, WHO CAN I ASK FOR HELP?
Once a student enrolls at the CEU Universities, a tutor professor is assigned to him/her. If you have difficulties during your training, you can contact your tutor professor, who can guide you, help you improve your academic performance, and facilitate your participation in university life.
