The University of Oviedo

History

The creation of the University of Oviedo and the College of Orphan Girls Recoletas was possible thanks to the will of Fernando de Valdés, archbishop of Seville, Inquisitor General and president of the Council of Castile, in accordance with his will and codicils issued in 1566 and 1568 .

Education

Worthy of note is the participation of nearly 200 companies in the teaching and student placements in academic-career-oriented Master's degree programmes. It coordinates three Erasmus Mundus Master's programmes and offers students bilingual studies, dual degrees with foreign universities, and double degrees via which young people obtain two degrees.
