Welcome to Valencia, a dream-like city which is actually real! Within the precincts of one single city, you will be able to experience history and modernity while savoring the delights of a true Mediterranean life. Today, Valencia is Spain’s third largest city, but over 2,000 years ago, it already shined under the reign of Caesar Augustus. In the fifteenth and sixteen centuries, Valencia wielded economic power throughout the Mediterranean. In the new millennium, this welcoming city continues making history with its avant-garde architecture, as well as with its people and economic fabric.  

The City of Arts & Sciences is an architectural collection of exceptional beauty, harmonizing the outer structure with the content. Its stunning architecture naturally blends with its great capacity to entertain, teach and excite by promoting public participation. Offering cultural and intellectual leisure, the City of Arts & Sciences has given Valencia the best center of this type in Europe.

The Catholic University of Valencia “San Vicente Mártir” seeks a high-standard educational quality that provides an authentic university community in a climate of academic friendship; and a purpose to create and maintain a singularly educational and personal relationship between each one of the students and the University. Instruction, education and formation are the axes that conform our teaching.

We are a member of the Asociación de Programas Universitarios Norteamericanos en España, APUNE, www.apune.org
