About

History

University education in the Tarragona area goes back to the 16th century when Cardinal Gaspar Cervantes de Gatea founded a university in the city of Tarragona to teach Grammar, the Arts and Theology. This Universitas Tarraconensis was practically wiped out by the reprisals of Philip V after the War of Succession. 

Education

The range of academic programmes offer by the URV covers all fields of knowledge: engineering and architecture, arts and humanities, health, and social and experimental sciences. We offer a wide range of programmes including bachelor’s degrees, master’s degrees and doctoral programmes, as well as lifelong training programmes for professional development.

Research

The University aims to promote all the research activities of its members and pays particular attention to the strengthening of groups, and the quality and the magnitude of its scientific production.

There are a variety of complex structures that work together on this task and focus on research groups as the basic unit.

Institutes and Centres for Research and Innovation:
  • ICAC - Catalan Institute of Classical Archaeology
  • ICIQ - Catalan Institute of Chemical Research
  • IPHES - Catalan Institute of Human Palaeocology and Social Evolution
  • IISPV - The Pere Virgili Institute for Health Research
  • IREC - The Catalonia Institute for Energy Research
  • VITEC – Wine Technology Center
  • EURECAT – Technology Center of Catalonia
  • CYBERCAT
