Universidad Católica San Antonio de Murcia (UCAM)

Co-organizer (Spain)

UCAM is a private university founded in 1996 with a clear mission: to provide students with the knowledge and skills to serve society, to contribute to the further expansion of human knowledge through research as an integral part of the development of man and mankind, and to participate in the areas of education and culture. UCAM staff value personal relationships in the learning context. This is why each student is given a personal tutor and class sizes are deliberately kept small. The variety of the academic programs on offer constantly adapted to the real needs of society and recognized by the European Higher Education Area, reflects this core guideline: each student is a reason for UCAM to continue its work of striving for perfection. UCAM empowers students to develop their own real-world skills. Students have to complete an internship in a public or private institution where they will receive a taste of their of their future field of expertise.
