The University of Extremadura (UEx) was created in 1973 and has been providing its students with excellent training ever since. Its roots can be traced back to its ties with the region of Extremadura. In the beginning, the establishment of higher education consisted of the Faculty of Sciences in Badajoz, the University College in Caceres, and also the University Schools for primary teacher-training in Caceres and Badajoz and the School of Agricultural and Technical Engineering in Badajoz. For the last few years, the university has consisitently been rising in student numbers and degree options. The school now has four seperate centres, which includes campuses in the cities of Badajoz and Caceres, in addition to the University Centre in Merida and another one in Plasencia. Today, over 24,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students have chosen the University of Extremadura as their institution to achieve their academic goals. 8,000 doctoral students are also enrolled in doctoral studies at the institution. The faculty is made up of highly qualified teachers and academic, administrative, technical and service staff – 1,500 teachers are working on campus, in order to transfer their knowledge and insights onto the students, so that they are well-equipped for their future in high level positions in global enterprises. The Rector is Dr. Píriz Duran and he is proud to have the honour of leading this great university. Students can study various courses in all fields of knowledge, and even take part in international exchange programmes and internships, as the university works closely together with other academical institutes in the world. Students are therefore able to gain a truly global outlook and, at graduation, possess the necessary skills and tools to make it in the business world. Graduates are highly employable and usually find fulfilling positions within a short period of time after graduating.

The University of Extremadura is a university that increasingly receives more grades. I study at the Polytechnic School of Cáceres, which is characterized by the proximity of teachers to students and very dynamic classes using all kinds of resources.View more
The University of Extremadura is divided into 3 large campuses located in the cities of Cáceres, Badajoz and Mérida. Depending on the specialty you want to study, you will reside in one city or another. The cities are comfortable, with a good university atmosphere and cheap to live in the city.
Many activities and events are organized within each campus. The teaching staff is friendly and the classes are dynamic.
University with very good campus, each time with more degrees available. Although some classrooms remain old or small for some large groups, it would be nice if in some careers the subjects were a bit more practical. Good teaching staff in general and friendly staff.View more
For me, as a Dutch student, studying 4 years at the University of Extremadura has been a really good experience. My Spanish wasn’t at it’s best when I started studying, but my teachers and classmates have helped me a lot. As the University is not so big, the classes are small (around 17 students) and you get the chance to get good contact with everyone. The study itself is very ample, I use to say: You learn a bit about everything. The classes are very theoretic and I think it could be improved with some more practical seminars. Cáceres also gave me the opportunity to study one year abroad with the Erasmus program and this was the best, most instructive year of my life. I had the chance to learn German, to meet people from different cultures and to learn the Geography of Germany.View more

I really liked studying Business Administration and Management and Law at the University of Extremadura. It has allowed me to do an internship abroad and to study an Erasmus in another prestigious University. There are very good teacher despite not all of them being great as everywhere. Comparing with other universities, there are small classes and the teacher gets to know you if you participate in the classes a little bit. It has very good facilities. If you work hard, studying in this University will allow you to get wherever you want to (as the University of Oxford). I leave the link below.
Hello everyone. I am currently pursuing a double degree in ADE and Law at the University of Extremadura. I guess, like all of them, it has positives and negatives. The enrollment is quite economical, has a large virtual campus from which allows you to have access to all the notes and be in constant contact with teachers. Generally satisfactory teaching staff. A great inconvenience for many students of my career is to be forced to move to the city of Cáceres to complete there the part of Law, since in Badajoz we do not have Faculty of Law.View more
I studied a degree in Occupational Therapy, and the campus situation and facilities are magnificent. The quality of certain professors was not so great, most were not occupational therapists and taught basic concepts of training, and the implication in the different disciplines was not to expect, in addition to lowers of certain teachers who were slow to cover and losing more quality ( like having a psychiatrist, who barely spoke Spanish).View more
