At Universidad Europea, we consider academic excellence to be one of our strategic pillars. Thus, our educational model has embraced the principles of the European Higher Education Area based on the individual’s holistic learning. In this model, the professor is a mentor as well as an adviser who supports the student throughout their university life. The student, on the other hand, maps out their own educational journey, developing the knowledge, competences, skills and values demanded by society at the moment.
