Chancellor's Welcome

The University of Valladolid, whose history can be traced back to the 13th century, has been the inspirational foundation for numerous other prestigious universities in Spain. It has at all times upheld its firm commitment to teaching and research and, while forging links with Europe and the Americas, has remained deeply committed to its home region of Castilla y León as well to the economic and social development of the society of which it forms part and ultimately aims to serve through its activities.

Through these pages we wish to provide visitors with useful information reflecting the long history of innovation and fruitful labour undertaken by all those who make up our university –teaching staff, service and administration personnel and students- and the responsibility we have to remain duty-bound to the society we serve by putting all of our scientific potential at its disposal.

Our four campuses –Valladolid, Palencia, Segovia and Soria-, offering over 100 degree courses, the numerous postgraduate and PhD courses, our renowned international relations, distinguished research centres, wide range of cultural and sports activities together with a rich architectural and archival heritage, provide a unique academic environment in line with the oldest universities in Europe whose history, through excellence and the ability to innovate, we form part of.

This page will also provide all the latest information available which may prove to be of use to those wishing to visit us.
Our aim is not to make this a static website but one which is dynamic and will grow to include new services.

A warm welcome,
Evaristo J. Abril Domingo
