The Universidad CEU Cardenal Herrera (CEU Cardenal Herrera University) forms part of the Fundación CEU San Pablo (CEU San Pablo University Foundation), which is a not-for-profit teaching organization with more than 80 years of experience in the field of education.


The best way to learn is to learn by doing. Therefore, in addition to the theoretical training, our entire range of studies includes both compulsory and voluntary practical training to enable students to do just that. There are TV studios, a veterinary hospital, computer rooms, recording studios, a dental clinic, a pharmaceutical practical room, and simulation rooms. Whatever your vocation, you will get hands-on training from the first day without leaving the university. In addition, we have agreements with a large number of companies at which you can undertake placements to prepare you to join the professional world.


University CEU Cardenal Herrera is among the top four Spanish private universities in research rankings (Shanghai Ranking Expanded, IUNE, international ranking SCIMAGO) and remains a benchmark in the Region of Valencia.

The university has a clear commitment to research (+1.3 million euros of investment and more than 40 projects) as a basis to develop academic excellence that benefits our students and society in general.


Due to the professional work placements, which the university holds and rigorously develops to reconstruct professional future scenarios, the students are able to begin work practices from their first year on. In the last years of each degree, the internship department manages the demand of interns from companies and institutions. The University constantly organizes new cooperation agreements to facilitate access to employment. It also has two specific programs, "Voluntary Internships" and "Mandatory Internships". In some degrees, the percentage numbers of students who acquire internships are 100%.

Student Reviews

It was okay
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

It is an okay school, everybody is nice but I got little to no guidance, from the school it took them weeks to reply to my email if they answered at all. If u are an international student I would strongly suggest not coming here. No hate but I had a very disappointing experience.

The best education at all coats
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The university is academically very good but really lacks financial assistance for international students as they said in the interview for acceptance.

My outstanding university
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The university is a very nice one. They have academic excellence, it's a very nice place to study the teachers are always available for help. But the school fees is way too much for an individual to handle.
