Washington DC hosted the 75th Annual Conference & Expo of NAFSA: Association of International Educators, a meeting that brings together educational institutions from more than 100 countries to share innovations, strategies and practices in higher education and an ideal forum for universities to establish alliances. Our Universidad Católica de Murcia was well represented at this global event, a key factor in the international growth of this institution presided over by María Dolores García.

The members of the UCAM delegation participated in more than 90 meetings and launched nearly 15 collaboration agreements with institutions in countries such as the United States, Japan and South Korea.

Pablo Blesa, UCAM Vice-Rector of International Relations and Communication, highlighted, for example, ‘the interest of universities in the United States and Canada in sending their students to Spain to learn our language, as well as in our short courses; programmes of two to four weeks that take place mainly in the summer’. In addition, he mentioned the launch of two specific training projects ‘a double degree in Communication with the University of Limerick (Ireland) and another one with the UPAEP in Mexico’.
