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.
The UCV is one of the best universities in Venezuela, it is more than the beauty of its campus, it is the students that make it a land full of dreams and opportunities, of its teachers who give you their knowledge and guide hand in your way It is the right place to grow as a student and as a person, your spaces are there to make them yours and if you are willing to dedicate part of yourself, it will give you back all of it.
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.
My university is the UCV, it is wonderful, it is a university with vision and mission, it forges professionals capable of solving any inconvenience and making a difference anywhere in the world! It is the best in the country and regardless of the circumstances is the house that overcomes the shadows.
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, 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.
The Central University of Venezuela is recognized in my country as one of the best because of its high educational level, it has many specializations for the adaptation and interest of each of the students and even provides services such as transportation and dining for the benefit of students and university workers. The UCV has an incredible architecture, large murals and beautiful statues which are cultural heritage. However, due to the current situation of the country, the university struggles daily to maintain its integrity, the green areas and classrooms have been neglected, the quality of the services has decreased and the student population has even decreased. General maintenance of the university should be done to maintain both its integrity and student enthusiasm. Let us not forget that the Central University is the house that overcomes the shadows!
In recent years, the university has suffered a lot of inefficiency on the part of the faculties, speaking in general, but in this case I speak of the Faculty of Sciences since all the schools have few resources to help the students, they are very few times that the school gives you that quality of resolution that a few years ago offered it, therefore, it is complicated to carry out a semester order in terms of personal records of university documents, everything has become very slow, there are times when the school does not open having classes, has been neglected a bit on that subject. But this year has seen a bit of change thanks to the commitment that people of political-academic order, control of university studies, are putting to work. You can already request with a little more peace of mind up to the minimum that is a constancy.
UCV is a university that has many options for all kinds of people, different careers, courses and many other things. In addition to that the campus is very large you get people who help you and later they will be classmates, the teachers are of quality, for that reason and more is an excellent university
