About Villanueva University

Desde que el Centro Universitario Villanueva, con el apoyo institucional de Fomento de Centros de Enseñanza, abrió sus puertas en 1998 ha tenido por misión ofrecer una educación universitaria de calidad.

La docencia, el asesoramiento y la investigación de todos los profesionales que componen la comunidad universitaria, se orientan a fomentar en el alumno el amor a la verdad y a la libertad, que unidos a la transmisión de conocimientos, a la generación de competencias, y a la atención al desarrollo de valores individuales y sociales, contribuyen a su preparación personal y profesional, y a la búsqueda del bien común como servicio a la sociedad.

La especialización en disciplinas relevantes de las Ciencias Sociales y el compromiso con la enseñanza interdisciplinar, transversal e integradora de las Humanidades son algunos de los aspectos más relevantes de nuestra identidad.

Size and Location

Villanueva abides by two criteria that form part of its identity; not to segregate students into suburban campuses removed from the professional and social reality in which they should be immersed; and to preserve a compact dimension in keeping with the degree of excellence that it demands of all its activities in the specialized areas of learning in which it is engaged. University sites are thus located in Mirasierra district – Costa Brava, 6 – and – Costa Brava, 2. Degrees awarded are related to the Social Sciences (Journalism, Audiovisual Communications, Publicity and Public Relations, Law, Business Administration, Education and Teacher Training). Admission standards and selection procedures are demanding due to the limited number of places available.



“Villanueva University provides quality higher education based on the principles of Christian humanism”

The main features of our university model are:

  • Specialising in a variety of social sciences: Business, Law, Communications, Education and Psychology.
  • A commitment to an interdisciplinary, transversal and integrated education in humanities.
  • A professional character, coupled with the commitment to research, which defines the university’s key role of transmitting knowledge.
  • A university environment open to discussions, critical analysis and continual assessment, in which the master classes and individual tutoring, group assignments, lectures, and oral and written exercises are combined. All this is accomplished using the latest teaching methods, both face-to-face, and online.
  • The transmission of human and ethical values through lesson content, born from the belief that the students will have an influence on society through their work environments.
  • Provide solid and extensive training to prepare professionals who stand out for their work ethic and spirit of service.
  • The participation and involvement of teachers as major figures in the educational process.
  • Support for student training through academic tutoring and personal counselling. • The relevance of our training, both in teaching methodologies and work practice

programs, aimed at facilitating employment for graduates. • A clear international focus, present in our curriculum and with the possibility of studying part of the course abroad thanks to partnerships and agreements with universities in other countries.

This is reflected in a full range of academic degrees, combined degrees, master’s degrees and certificates of specialisation. Practically all of our students study two degrees or a degree with a certificate, seeking greater preparation, specialisation and professional expertise, which equates to a quick and easy entry into the labour market.
