Presentation of the Rector

If you are reading this, it is probably because something about our University has caught your eye.

You may already know that we are part of the largest and most traditional private education institution in Spain, CEU, founded in 1933 by the Catholic Association of Propagandists (ACdP). In the Community of Madrid, we were the first to offer a new way of understanding and managing higher education, first as a University College and, since 1933, as a private University. More than 85 years on, our pioneering attitude continues to leave its mark on everything we do. You’ll find out as soon as you get to know us.

You might have heard that we are a University with an international vocation. I can assure you that that is completely true. An ever-increasing number of international students, coming from more than 50 countries, enroll to study at the Universidad CEU San Pablo each year. And this is noticeable in the atmosphere you’ll find in our lecture halls and on our campuses.

Perhaps you have been told that at CEU, our students are at the heart of everything we do. And that’s not wrong, they are. For that reason, everyone who is part of our university community is fully committed to helping our students grow both professionally and personally. And, on top of that, we do so in a personal way, tailored to each of our student's needs.

You might even have found out about one of the research projects or proposals on teaching innovation being carried out by our professors. Most of these initiatives are a result of our vocation to serve society, which is intrinsic to our education project and part of the culture of our institution. At CEU, we want to contribute to making the world a better place for everyone.

It doesn’t matter what caught your eye about our University. If you are visiting and want to get to know us better, for whatever reason, we invite you to do exactly that. Our doors are always open, we are a welcoming and inclusive place to be.

If you have already decided to study with us, we are here to tell you more, guide you through and, especially, help you make the most out of every single opportunity our University has to offer, as well as the fantastic and unique stage of your life that you are about to begin.

In any case, welcome to the CEU community, a place that trains students to be excellent professionals, but, above all, well-rounded individuals, educated in the values of Christian humanism and ready to offer the best of their talent to improve our society.
