About UPF

UPF is a public, international and research-intensive university that, in just twenty-five years, has earned a place for itself among the best universities in Europe. It is also member of the Catalan Association of Public Universities (ACUP).

Established in 1990, the UPF was inspired by the principles of freedom, democracy, justice, equality, independence and plurality. From its beginnings, this young academic institution set itself two main objectives: to train responsible professionals and citizens fully committed to civic values, and to contribute towards the development of outstanding research.

Today, UPF offers its studies around three areas of knowledge focused on the human being: the social sciences and humanities, the health and life sciences, and the ITC and communication sciences. To develop its activity, the University has been structured into seven schools, a Polytechnic School, eight departments and three university institutes.
