At the Francisco de Vitoria University we have been teaching for the transformation of the world for more than 30 years

About us

The UFV was born in Madrid (Spain) in 1993 as a university open to innovation in order to promote the global common good through training, research and a positive impact on society. In accordance with its Catholic identity, we offer formation centered on people and on the dialogue between the social sciences and between these and philosophy and theology. For this we use an educational model that unites teachers and students in a dialogue that encourages the search for truth, goodness and beauty in an atmosphere of deep friendship. Thus, our pedagogical model encourages students to ask themselves the big questions about the meaning of their lives and the world, that they learn to understand and analyze it, and that they commit to improving society in line with the intellectual tradition of Christian humanism.

Our current academic offer covers more than 50 degrees and double degrees integrated into seven faculties and schools: Communication; Law, Business and Government; Health; Higher Polytechnic; Education and Psychology; Experimental Sciences and Medicine.

What makes us different

  • We place the person at the center, always keeping in mind the impact on the person of everything we do and aspiring to train our students in sciences and professions centered on the person as a being in relationship.
  • We are a Catholic university: we were born with the vocation of serving as a beacon that guides and brings meaning to our time.
  • We are a university open to the world, which trains its students for a global and multicultural society.
  • We are committed to comprehensive training: our mission is to train people who will practice their profession seeking the common good, and who seek to transform their own lives and the society in which they live, work and serve others.
  • We promote excellence in everything we do to train the future leaders of tomorrow.
  • We want to be a university whose mission and culture integrate sustainability from the perspective of the human being in relation to all creation (common home), which understands the impact that serious deterioration of the earth will have on humanity, and which takes action in consequence.
  • We have a campus of more than 23 hectares where an air of meeting and community is breathed among all the members of the University. We have state-of-the-art facilities and host different training, innovation and service centers and institutions.
