    Best public university

    From my point of view UCM offers a lot of degrees to study and you can get the opportunity to learn in whichever you want in this public university. Good professionals of education who go in a good way of innovation techniques in order to teach and the well known environment from its campus, are the factors which complete my decision to study there.
    In a nutshell, I highly recommend choosing the best public university to study in Madrid.

    The best university in Spain

    I think that the Complutense University is a historical institution in Spain and that it is very professional. It has a widely varied offer and one of the largest campuses I have ever known. In summary, it has meant an enriching experience for me from different points of view and I am very proud to have been a student of this center.

    A very nice experience

    I’ve been here for an internship and, firstly, I should mention the hospitable personnel and students also, it really helped me to get used to study and living. Madrid is enchanting, and Complutense gives a great part of this impression. I have found both highly professional tutors, the professors are attentive to the students, and I remember the time in Complutense with pleasure. I’ve got everything I’ve needed from this time.

  • Political Communication
    Very satisfactory experience

    During an academic course, I did a Master in Advanced Studies in Political Communication. The experience was very good. From the first day I saw in the study center a good place to start my specialization in this subject. I was also fortunate to have a group of teachers who made learning something dynamic and able to capture the attention of everyone.

    My only “but” is the absence of a wider practical part to develop the knowledge acquired.

    Highly recommendable University from an academical point of view. Students are collaborative and supportive and there are a lot of extra-academic options. It should however be more accessible to everyone.

    Good University for studying and living

    This University ‘s one of the best of Madrid, and therefore one of the best of Spain. It’s a huge University with many faculties and careers, the quality of the teaching depends on the faculty and the teacher. On average it’s good, but some study plans should be rescheduled and some teachers should adjust their teaching to the practicalities of the job realities the students will face.

    But let’s face it, studying here has a major bonus for anyone coming from a foreign country, Ucm is the host of the non-profit organisation ESN UCM. ESN UCM organises trips, cultural activities and much more for the students allowing them to have a fulfilling experience in Madrid while meeting hundreds of other students from every nationality.

  • One of the best universities in Spain

    Students from all over the world, highly trained and competent teachers, there are always exceptions but in general the training is great. There are a lot of activities going on at the university, both sports and associations. In addition the training can be extended with different master offered by the university.

    Big but old

    I studied “Comunicación Audiovisual” in Universidad Complutense. It’s the biggest and oldest uni of Madrid. We have so good and known teachers but we miss some new materials and places to practice. I encourage you to come and visit us!

    The best university

    I think that the Complutense University is the best university because it’s an inclusion university and has the best position in the ranking of the Spanish universities.
    On the other hand, it has a lot of different types of careers and different masters.

  • The university in decline

    The Complutense University of Madrid is still the most prestigious public educational entity in Spain, a title that in my opinion today is far from deserving due to its decadent educational system and its prehistoric staff of professors, professors and other specimens that make up this fauna labor. Studying there can be a stifling experience, degree programs are more than backward, anachronistic, and more than a little flexible, static. Not to mention the unwillingness to recognize the talent and effort of the students, when they exist, on the part of the teaching staff. And I say when they exist because the student community, I do not know if by law of reciprocity or by the endemic disease that leads to the whole country, which could be called extreme vulgarization, ends up also turned into a mass of disinterested and apathetic, without passion or emotion to learn nothing or develop a thought of their own and critical of what happens around them. On the other hand, access to academic and professional materials and publications is often an impossible mission, there is a shortage of resources and in most cases those that are found are not the best qualified. In terms of infrastructure, the faculties and other complexes built up are quite old and leave much to be desired at the level of functionality. If as an exchange student you are looking for a motivating university environment where you can debate, question and grow and spread intellectually, culturally and personally, of course you will not find it here. If, on the other hand, you are looking for an ordinary environment, ignorant and with great rates of stupidity, of course this is your place. As a point to please say that this problem of decline I do not think it is exclusive to the Complutense University of Madrid, I think rather that it is a phenomenon that extends to the university as a Western and European institution that is no longer supported or will more in the model and in the principles in which it was originally conceived and created.
