    The nacho

    Great university, one of the best in Colombia. It has a great variety of races. The campus is great because it has many green areas where you can perform multiple activities. There are also study groups, cultural and sports, where you can meet new people to take advantage of time and the university experience is not limited to academics.

    Quality without government help

    Universidad Nacional de Colombia is one of the best universities from Colombia, it’s public, head in research and innovation of the country and the continent and available for all the people. It has been seriously affected by the governments in the past 20 years. Even though it has been threatened by the lack of budget and the neglect it is amazing.

    The best university of Colombia: a place to blossom

    The National University of Colombia is by far the best university of the country, not just because of the research it’s developed and encouraged to do among the students, but because of all the facilities it has for its members at any level. It is an accesable place for people from every social status to grow as people and professionals. It is full of the purest air you can breathe because of all the green spaces it has, that resambles a little bit of Colombia’s biodiversity, and what to say about its amazing professors, with the highest degrees and humanism on their souls, passionate for education and their specific area. But what I love the most about “La Nacho”, as we call it lovingly is the diversity, the possibility to be yourself on its spaces, the chance it gives us to be the best version of ourselves at any ambit, including sports, arts, sciences, community outreach, and self-development. This is my home, the one who gave me the tools to discover my true self and to feel completely passionate about what I decided to study, so I will always be thankful with it for that and even more. Definetly the best University in Colombia.

  • The best of the country

    By far is the best university in Colombia, because it has the best teachers. In addition, it is the university that more Doctorates generates in the country. To enter, you must compete with approximately 25,000 young people from all over the country. This is a very demanding exam.

  • Academy and Plurality

    In my opinion, it is the best university in Colombia and one of the best in Latin America. There, you can find most of the careers and faculties that are studied at a general level. It offers facilities to foreigners in terms of stay and so on. We can not ignore the plurality that can be found there, allowing us to know the culture of the whole country. The university has a huge and beautiful campus. It is a good experience to study in the university, considering the quality and kindness of its students ..
