The University of Zaragoza is a public institution of research and higher education in the service of society, combining a tradition of five centuries of history with the updating of their teaching education.

The University of Zaragoza is generalist and offers courses in all areas: Arts and Humanities, Experimental Sciences, Health Sciences, Social Sciences and Law and Engineering and Architecture. Its dedication to European integration and its commitment to the future have resulted in actions which have enabled it, to offer 54 degree courses. It also has 6 double, joint or consecutive programs. In terms of graduate studies, the University offers 62 universitary masters and 47 doctorate programmes, in addition to 62 own programmes.

Scientific research, technological development and constant innovation are essential tools for economic and social growth. . Research carried out by the University of Zaragoza is focused on technological, social, legal, humanistic, experimental and biohealth areas. It organises research activity through its own research Institutes, joint or affiliated institutes, as well as through nationally and internationally renowned research groups. Its laboratories and scientific and technological infrastructures are dedicated to optimising research by generating knowledge and promoting innovation. University research institutes play a vital role in the work carried out by the University of Zaragoza, which comprises 11 institutes: 6 own institutes, 1 affiliated institute and 4 joint institutes.

The University also has other unique research facilities: the Canfranc Underground Laboratory (LSC) and the Advanced Microscopy Laboratory. It is also noteworthy the Research Center in Transmisible Spongiform and Emerging Diseases, fruit of an agreement between the Goverment of Aragon, the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation and the University of Zaragoza, as a reference laboratory for research that requires a high degree of security in the field of Biology, Biomedicina or Veterinary Science.

A large part of the University’s research activity is channeled through the 170 research groups. It also has research support services, consisting of laboratories and workshops which facilitate research work in various scientific fields.

In order to strengthen its relations with companies and institutions the University has a Research Results Transfer Office (OTRI) and has created company and institutional Chairs. In this way, society benefits from the transfer of technology and research carried out by the University, as well as from the dissemination of ideas and continuous training and the provision of technical assistance to businesses and university communities through participation in contracts, development of patents, and the creation of technologybased companies. The University has 73 institutional and company Chairs. This represents a strategic and long-lasting union, where both parties can benefit from the results of research, development and innovation activities. Its activities include developing of research lines of common interest, pursuing national and international research projects, advising on innovation, development, and preferential information regarding research or transfer projects, the development of doctoral theses and dissertations, organising student work placements, promoting the integration of university teachers in the business environment carrying out training. The University of Zaragoza is the second Spanish University according to the number of institutional and company Chairs.

The University of Zaragoza’s international commitment is demonstrated through mobility programmes (both its own and external) for students, teachers, researchers, and administration and service staff, double degree programmes, bilateral and multilateral agreements, research projects, and university development cooperation projects across the five continents. The University of Zaragoza considers internationalisation a guarantee of quality. It has around 1,700 bilateral agreements with institutions all over the world (34 European countries, the United States, Canada, Australia, Latin America, Asia, and Africa). It is one of the top-ranking Spanish universities in terms of international annual student exchanges. Almost 1,000 of our students take part every year; and around 3.7% of the students attending daily lessons at the University of Zaragoza are international incoming exchange students. In addition, each year around 150 teachers from our University carry out educational visits in other European countries, and the trend is growing. The University of Zaragoza has managed various international mobility programmes and in addition, it takes part in development cooperation programmes.

The University of Zaragoza, together with the Public University of Navarra, La Rioja University and Lleida University formed the Ebro Valley Campus honoured with the title of International Campus of Excellence. A consortium has been created overcoming the geographical and administrative boundaries of four autonomous regions. The areas of expertise are set according with their capabilities to claim their international position with defined scientific challenges and ground-breaking activities in sustainable energy, technology for citizens’ health, food and nutrition, and conservation of cultural heritage. Particularly valued are their ties with the productive environment, involving companies, institutions and cities. The objectives of the Iberus Campus are: providing quality, comprehensive training; achieving scientific excellence; promoting internationalisation; establishing itself as a focal point for talent; improving management quality; promoting social responsibility and integration with society and providing the necessary infrastructural aggregation in order to develop the thematic organisation of the campuses. This will be reinforced by the coordinated structure of the four universities, the research centres of Aragón, Navarra, La Rioja and Lleida, and will involve surrounding cities and businesses. One key aim is to create a cross-border campus with the universities of Toulouse and Pau (France), which will allow student and teacher mobility and further strengthen relations between academics and researchers.

The University of Zaragoza has an extensive offer in the field of culture and sport, as well as a set of services to its members (accommodation, residence, language ...) benefit. Their courses of Spanish as a Foreign Language are the oldest in Spain.
