The University of Granada, also known as UGR, was built in 1531 by the order of the Emperor Charles V. Granada is a beautiful city witness of the history of Spain, being influenced by the Iberian, Roman and later Jewish and Islamic cultures. The University has honored it roots which can be traced back to the madrasahs of the last Nasrid Kingdom. All of these different cultures had made of Granada and its University a city open to cultures, beliefs, art, and people. It is without a doubt one of the best places to study History and Archeology.Show more

I’ve spent one year in the University of Granada, during my Erasmus. I’ve had a generally good impression about the teaching, the facilities and the building. I have to admit it was difficult sometimes when I had classes in different buildings located in different parts of the town. Furthermore, as an Erasmus student, I had to deal with the international office and I have to admit this was the most difficult part of the whole experience. Anyway, I’m considering the idea of moving to Granada and do a Master there because I really think UGR is a worthy university.
Mediocre in terms of facilities, I have seen better. I studied at the ETSAG, and some teachers are getting a better time to remove them, they do not work.
The best thing, in my opinion, is that it has a great Erasmus program and other mobilities, you have many possibilities to choose from.
One of the best things about the University of Granada is the variety of areas of knowledge offered for graduate and postgraduate education. I did my career and two masters here and enjoyed studies abroad through UGR. This is because have a lot of agreements to stay abroad, an event with PdH. So, I recommend this university for its buildings, its various campuses, its teachers, its social and inclusion projects and the variety of subjects in careers. Thousands of students come to Granada, from Spain and the rest of the world. An average of 60,000 students per year that make the city one of the favourite destinations.
It is a good university, it may be more complicated than in other places, but the subjects are more practical. Practices are carried out in different laboratories, classrooms or in the city, so that when more experiences are carried out, they help to learn the contents. Teachers inform and encourage students to participate in different activities such as conferences, courses or talks that may be interesting for students and even rewarding for attending some of them.
The UGR is a great institution at the level of research, especially in the field of health, but as far as teaching is concerned, there are many professors who, however good researchers they may be, are not good teachers because they do not know how to give good the classes, and by exigency of knowledge.
I can talk like a telephone. It is a pity that the university is so far from the center, but apart from that (and some of the hard facts there are), the university has enough resources to learn and study. In addition to that the university atmosphere of the city is great and you can enjoy a lot of the career orgsnizandose well.
