Overview

The University of Alcalá (UAH) is a public university located in Alcalá de Henares, Madrid, a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the longest standing European universities (dating back to 1293). In 1499, Cardinal Cisneros expanded the institution’s studies with the creation of a Higher College, which would later become the University of Alcalá, one of the first examples of a model university town. Today the University of Alcalá is a modern institution, founded in 1977, which preserves its traditional humanities faculties, a testimony to the university's efforts to promote and diffuse the Spanish language through both its studies and the Cervantes Prize, which is awarded annually by the King and Queen of Spain in the Paraninfo (Great Hall).It offers 36 degrees, 46 official masters and 26 PhD programs in five branches of knowledge: Arts and Humanities, Law and Social Sciences, Sciences, Health Sciences, and Engineering and Architecture, adapted to the EHEA. The UAH is firmly committed to research, technological innovation, and collaboration with business and industry, and also to defense of transparency, human rights and sustainability and environmental protection (1st Spanish university, according to GreenMetric, and 3rd in the world, according to Coolmyplanet).
