Why with us?


Founded at the heart of the Valencian Church, Universidad Católica de Valencia “San Vicente Mártir”  is an incomparable center of creativity and radiation of knowledge for the good of society. As it stands now, it is the combined result of the universities work carried out for over fifty years by the University School of Nursing “Ntra. Sra. de los Desamparados”, the work undertaken by the Edetania Foundation for more than thirty years, and ten years worth of efforts and dedication by the School of Business Studies. The Catholic University seeks a demanding quality of university life: the joint work between faith and reason; the strengthening of an authentic university community in a climate of academic friendship; and the purpose of creating and maintaining a singularly personalized relationship with the students.

Universidad Católica de Valencia “San Vicente Mártir” regards the educator as a teacher: knowledge is not simply passed on as if it were a consumer good; rather, a knowledge-based relationship is established whereby teaching goes beyond the mere transmission of notions and factual information. Our approach to teaching revolves around three axes: instruction, education and personal growth. The teacher instructs, thereby providing a fundamental contribution to the structuring of the personality; he or she educates, helping to uncover and activate the capabilities and gifts of everyone, and, in accordance with the humanistic philosophy, provides the necessary means for the students’ growth as human beings going beyond professional competence that fits into a solid construction and in a transparent correlation with the meanings of life.
