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 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.
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.
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.
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).
My opinion goes to the campus of BADAJOZ, which is where I studied: -The facilities of the University of Extremadura are very good, except for the Faculty of Medicine that is 'falling into chaos', part of the students have had to Give classes in the basement of the Infanta Cristina Hospital which is a shame since this faculty has a good prestige in the national level. "Little research budget. -Quite high cut-offs that make you migrate to another community, remember that Extremadura is one of the poorest communities (and therefore their prices are quite low) which causes people who can not afford to study in a Madrid, Salamanca , Sevilla, etc., for economic reasons. -For the dimensions of this university are missing many careers that I consider important since it supposes a great brain drain to other communities, for example; Dentistry, journalism, fine arts, philosophy, pharmacy, SMEs, marketing, design and fashion, architecture, musicology, nutrition, translation, pedagogy, some philology and engineering others, which could give a great boost. On the other hand, to return to those routes that nobody wants to do in the Uex for one reason or another, at the top is right, 60% of the students who want to study it try to avoid Uex, Spanish and English Philology, ADE ( With a very high dropout rate), History, ITA, Chemical Engineering, Mathematics and Physics. -Professionals plugged in, departments formed by entire families to which you have to buy the book of the subject (in some of these books cost € 70, EYE and do not see you with a photocopy that denounce you and throw you out of class) , Teachers who do not help or bother about students, teachers whose only obligation is to spend 20 slides in 2 hours of class and not transmit any knowledge to students, teachers who pass from you and if they can try to fuck you by going to your Office to explain the situation in which you live, they love to see how you cry even though you have tried hard, teachers who can not bear to go to an academy to supplement their classes. Obviously there are teachers who are saved and worthwhile, but in this university I think they do not even reach 20% of the total. -Exams, no longer depend on the difficulty of the subject itself, if not the character of the teacher, in most cases content tests that has not been explained in class, or with a simple slide without content ask a question That you can not answer. In cases like Math I of ITI or Accounting and Economic Costs is made uphill, you can go to an academy and strive to the maximum that in the exam you get putean as they want and they will not help you at all, in reverse, they will sink you saying You do not serve to study and that you should be in an FP or dedicate to the field. Examinations of faculties like Medicine or Nursing in which they do not renew nor the temarios for not wasting time of their personal lives in advance as they require this type of careers. -Temales, notes, … ANTICUADOS, 60% of teachers do not give notes, simply slides that do not serve you much because they do not explain anything, they only get us lost and do not know or where to start looking for information from the Exterior (I think it's great that anyone who wants to study something should have to bother investigating, but to a certain point). The other 40% or you put in a tray badly structured notes of the numerous "cut and paste" that they do or directly do not bother to give you anything. -As for the prices of the tuition fees of this university are not expensive compared to others in Spain, it is a plus, on the other hand it has quite a few cafes that offer quite affordable prices for both breakfasts and meals. The library is quite nice, large and has good service. In addition, each faculty has its own study hall. – Secretariat … I have had bad experiences with a couple of people from the Secretariat of my faculty, people without work, with bad face, bad answers that do not solve anything. As for the SIAA more of the same, and over the phone I have also been treated pretty badly. In general Badajoz is a fairly quiet city with good university atmosphere, but I do not recommend from my point of view the University of Extremadura, as it needs quite a few modifications from the teaching and study point.
Soy alumna de esta facultad en la carrera de Educación Primaria en tercer curso y la experiencia que estoy teniendo es regular ya que desde el primer año siempre nos faltan p profesores y tardan muchísimo tiempo en contratarlo indirectamente no los contratan.
En mi curso, el segundo año no tuvimos la asignatura más importante de la carrera y creo que estos problemas deberían solucionarlos cuanto antes
