University of Almeria - A Sea of Knowledge
Founded in 1993, the University of Almería (UAL) is a public university of higher education and research ranked in the Top 1000 worldwide, and in positions 201-300 in Food Science & Technology and 401-500 in Agricultural Sciences. We offer 34 Bachelor's and 44 Master's degrees, as well as 14 doctoral programs for our 14,000+ students.
UAL has become an increasingly popular destination for international students. Currently there are more than 1,100 full-degree foreign students enrolled in our programs and more than 750 exchange students who visit us each year from more than 50 different countries.
UAL offers a full range of degrees in all branches of knowledge: Business and Law, Education, Engineering, Health Sciences, Languages, and Philosophy and Sciences. In addition to two master's degrees fully taught in English, all of our programs have English components and courses.
UAL is the only Spanish campus facing the Mediterranean Sea. Its 52 hectares and 35 buildings have everything students need, including a newly built sports center, library, conference room blocks, cafeterias, language center, laboratories and research institutes, and many other facilities. The accommodation offer includes several options, from a room in a shared flat with fellow students (from € 150) to an all-inclusive single room at the CIVITAS Student Residence.
UAL also offers a wide variety of training workshops, cultural and sports activities and internship opportunities in local companies, which makes it easier for foreign students to become part of our community.
UAL is just 15 minutes from the town of Almería (or 20, if you prefer to use the bike path on the promenade). Ours is a small city of 250,000 inhabitants, with a beautiful and safe environment where you can enjoy a great quality of life and a mild climate all year round. The surroundings offer an extraordinarily rich environment, from the Cabo de Gata Natural Park (the largest protected coastal area in southern Spain) to the Las Alpujarras mountains, on the slopes of the Sierra Nevada.
