We know that choosing a university is a difficult decision, and that’s why we want to offer you a guide to help with your decision. The University of Andorra (UdA) is the only public university in the Principality of Andorra, a microstate located in the heart of the Pyrenees. Higher education in the country began in 1988 with the creation of the School of Nursing and the School of Computer Science, giving rise to the University of Andorra, whose campus has been located in the centre of Sant Julià de Lòria since 2004.
Its mission is to give a quality response to the needs of Andorran society in higher education and research, and to train people in order to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to quickly and successfully enter the working world. For this reason, more than 90% of graduates find work before finishing their studies or during their first month of research, according to a labour insertion study done in 2018 by the Agència de Qualitat de l’Ensenyament Superior d’Andorra (Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education of Andorra).
The University’s strengths are personalized student attention and the promotion of lifelong learning. Annually, UdA enrols more than 500 students in official degree programmes and more than 1,200 in continuous education programmes.
Throughout its history, the University of Andorra has grown in training and research at a sustainable rate, and it now offers academic degrees at all three university levels (bachelor, master and doctoral). The majority of the qualifications offered are first cycle (3-year bachelor’s degrees – 180 European credits), both on-campus and online, mainly in the fields of technology, business, health and education. All taught degrees are adapted to the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) framework and recognized by participating countries.
The University of Andorra is innovative, especially in regards to teaching and training models. It is currently in the process of changing its educational model so that study plans are based on the achievement of competencies through problem solving.
