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.View more

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 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 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!View more
