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.
Here are some of the things that prospective students from the United States should know about CEU USP:
The language of instruction at CEU USP is Spanish. However, the university offers a limited number of English-taught programs.
CEU USP has a good reputation for its teaching and research. The university has a number of research institutes and centers, and its faculty members publish regularly in international journals.
CEU USP is located in Madrid, the capital of Spain. Madrid is a major cultural and economic center, and it offers a vibrant student life.
The service organizes internal competitions and inter-university competitions in Madrid and throughout Spain. One of every three students practices some sport at our university. Among the team sports that students can practice are basketball, football, volleyball, and rugby. The Sports Service also promotes individual sports such as badminton, karate, tennis, paddle, golf, chess, athletics, swimming, and judo. If students like to run, the university has a runner's club. Finally, if students prefer to do sports with machines, the university has a gym in the Moncloa Campus and several agreements with gyms offering discounts to University of CEU San Pablo students. We have the following student clubs or groups: entrepreneurial club, debate club, music club, theatre group, Chesterton club, writing club, poetry club, Astronomy club, cultural club of wine, and painting group.To join a group or a club, students need to contact the group admin (published on the website). Volunteering activities are very important for the university and we encourage our students to participate, working mainly with groups of people at risk of exclusion, such as children, the elderly, immigrants, the homeless, or people with diseases.
We have our own dorms in COLEGIO MAYOR SAN PABLO (C/Isaac Peral, 58. 28040 Madrid). Colegio Mayor San Pablo is an all-male residence hall that includes all the services a student may need. It is located in the city center, close to the Moncloa Campus. On our website, students can find accommodation through BEROOMERS PORTAL.
