UCAM Universidad Católica San Antonio de Murcia is a private university founded in 1996 with a clear mission: to provide students with the knowledge and skills to serve society, to contribute to the further expansion of human knowledge through research and development, and to participate in the Evangelical mission of the Catholic Church in the areas of education and culture.
Person to Person, Face to Face
UCAM students can count on personalized attention that fits their needs. UCAM staff value personal relationships in the learning context. This is why each student is provided a personal tutor and class sizes are deliberately kept small. The variety of academic programs on offer constantly adapt to the real needs of society and are recognized by the European Higher Education Area, reflecting this core guideline: each student is a reason for UCAM to continue its work of striving for perfection.
Learning in Action
The Catholic University of Saint Anthony empowers students to develop their own real-world skills. The campus’ top class infrastructure, its labs and studios, allied with practical learning components will prepare students to put their acquired knowledge into action. Students have to complete an internship in a public or private institution where they will receive a taste of their future field of expertise. UCAM has established more than fifty research groups in close collaboration with enterprises such as, Coca Cola, DANONE, Vodafone and Siemens, providing some students the opportunity to contribute academically. UCAM values a combination of theoretical and practical learning methods, which dramatically influence student's future success within the global workforce.
More than Knowledge - Values
As a Catholic institution committed to the Church, UCAM does more than provide top quality education. The transmission of values is an important pillar of the university and makes the difference in the future of our students. They will, not only become great professionals, but they will also develop strong personal ethics and empathy. UCAM’s formation is integral, comprehensive and provides opportunities for human development through volunteering activities, congresses, seminars, research projects and religious services.
Open and Global
With a strong international vocation, UCAM students have the opportunity to develop a global perspective thanks to the joint programs, collaborations, and exchange agreements with more than 150 universities around the world, including UC Berkeley, Stanford, Università di Bologna, National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and PUC - Rio Grande do Sul. UCAM centers in Cuba, Jakarta, Singapore, and Brussels work together to further develop the university’s international strategy.
