What is CEU Universities?

You are what you do

CEU Universities groups the three CEU universities in Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona. CEU is the largest private educational institution in Spain, and the only one that has three Universities in its structure. With over 80 years of history, CEU is experience and a guarantee. With more than 25 educational centers, CEU is the only institution that teaches from 3 year-old children to executives aged over 50.


Our educational orientation is based on the values of Christian humanism. Values that support our commitment to educational personalization through tutoring and integration programs. Values that drive our social commitment, which results in an extensive scholarship policy and pioneering academic volunteering initiatives with services to the international community. These values are what drive us to get involved in the generation of relevant research, research which, from the technical and humanistic point of view, helps improve the society we live in.

Inspired by Christian humanism we offer comprehensive training to our students. An offer we make to each student from conviction in a context of freedom and tolerance. Because the world needs people with clear ideas and principles. Because debate enriches the university experience. Because no problem in the world can be unrelated to us if we want to be men and women who help improve the lives of others. If you just want to learn a job, CEU may not be your place, but if you want to become the person you want to be: welcome.

Our international vision, the employability of our graduates, our top-notch teaching staff, our research and entrepreneurship centres... and many other reasons we invite you to explore.
