Mission / Vision

The mission of the Universitat de València clearly sets out the raison d’être of the institution, according to the legal and statuesque framework. The strategic reflection process that has been undertaken to define the Strategic Plan of the Universitat de València 2008-2011 resulted in the definition of the Universitat’s mission.

We understand that this statement remains actively changing, although its achievement will require different objectives and approaches that focus on new challenges.

“The Universitat de València’s mission is to train competent professionals at European Professional Standard and to encourage prestigious research with international implications that will contribute to the development of our society. Through training and research, the UV will promote the field of dissemination of science and culture, and also promote the reaffirmation of the democratic values of the society in general, and in the Valencian society in particular.”



  • Being a higher education institution renowned for its offer of high quality, comprehensive and international academic offer, which is accessible to everyone and covers permanent training needs throughout the different stages of people's life.
  • The ability to provide their students with comprehensive guidance, as embodied in the high quality of the undergraduate experience at the Universitat de València and in a qualification that will improve graduate's employability. 
  • The high volume and far researching impact from research achievements made by its research teams.
  • The ability to win specialised research resources: through attracting and developing talent and cooperation with competitive international decisions.
