    Central University of Venezuela: The house that overcomes the shadows.

    The Central University of Venezuela is an autonomous institution of higher education located in the capital city of Venezuela. It is characterized by its good quality in terms of teachers and good students, both parties being very committed and competent. The graduates of this “house of studies” are characterized by being bright and comprehensive, are professionals and excellently manage their area of study, having even greater knowledge compared to the standards of students of the same degrees graduated from other universities nationwide. In the UCV there are many student movements that promote politics throughout the university, being one of the most political universities in the country. The student of this university is very requested at work level. Finally, I consider it a very good university because of its quality of staff, students and teachers and can really be considered as “the house that overcomes the shadows”.

    This university is a cultural heritage, symbol of my beloved city. The experience in this university is great, the teachers, the students of the different faculties are very nice. The campus of the university is very spacious and has a lot of native fauna of the city, at the entrance of the highway is the entrance to the Botanical Garden of Caracas, which is a supreme wonder.

    is one of the best universities in Venezuela. Let’s start with the campus, have a tennis court, a football and baseball stadium for students to do sports activities.
    this university has many faculties, I studied in the faculty of social and economic sciences. The special thing about this university is that it has many green areas where students can rest, talk and share. The quality of its teachers is excellent, for this reason, it is the best university in the country.

    Central University of Venezuela

    The Central University of Venezuela is recognized as one of the best universities in the country. It is represented by excellent teachers, who have transmitted their knowledge and have allowed exchange and feedback with their students. On the other hand, it has good facilities and has easy access to reach it. Despite being a public university, it has a good education. And it also has the advantage of having a health center within its facilities, the only thing that it would lack is a system of greater vigilance due to the insecurity present in the country.

  • One of the best universities in the country!

    With respect to the academic level, the University has one of the highest in the country. You have the privilege of studying at one of the best universities and completely free.
    If you want to study architecture, the UCV is the most appropriate. The themes and design exercises are duly updated, and the study methodology is quite correct and productive. The teachers motivate you to give the best of you.
    The curriculum must be modified a bit and even add specializations to the career, even so the knowledge with which you graduate is at the level of any University in the world.
    The facilities are currently not the best, they are not in good condition for obvious reasons. However, the environment that the University has is unique and incomparable, and despite not having the best resources, this has not changed the academic level.
    The students of the UCV must feel honored to be part of this house of study and maintain it, in order to contribute to the country as professionals, what it brings us daily.

    Central University of Venezuela

    Despite all the chaotic situation, which currently hits all levels and social classes of the country, I can and I was born saying that my university has sought all means, options and possible measures for those who want to progress, both personally and intellectually do without any limit, thus promoting and teaching us that an exit is always possible, only that we should look for it ourselves and not wait for it to arrive. My university is and will be the best university in the country, I hope that the people who live there always give me the reason, because who gives life to the university is the quality and the desire to keep ahead of those who live, study, work and dedicate to her every day .. UU UCV!

    My house of studies

    my house of studies, the central university of venezuela, is one of the best that can be in Venezuela, what if we must emphasize is that it needs a better administration of resources, to recover the deterioration that its facilities have suffered throughout the years and security of the students.
