LATEST NEWS AND EVENTS FROM THE SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING
More than 8,500 undergraduate students start the academic year at the university
2,100 are first-year students and 674 of them are from Navarre, 17% more than last year.
More than 8,500 students have started the academic year at the University of Navarra. Of these, around 2,100 are first-year students. The number of students from Navarre stands out, with 674 enrolments, an increase of 17% compared to last year. The University also maintains the proportion of international students: 600 students of 55 different nationalities, representing 28% of the total. Of particular note are the 85 students from Ecuador, 60 from the United States and another 34 from Venezuela.
The University Admissions Service informs that these are provisional data as the enrolment period is still open. In addition, and especially in the case of students from other countries, even if they have started their studies, enrolment may be delayed for some time.
The objective for this academic year is to exceed 13,000 students between bachelor's degrees, master's programmes, doctoral programmes and UB-specific degrees.
With these figures on the table, the University of Navarra's commitment is to grow more in quality than in quantity and to consolidate the parameters that this year have led it to occupy third place in the Times Higher Education (THE) ranking, as the third university in Europe in terms of teaching, behind the Oxford and Cambridge campuses.
The THE ranking measures the institution's commitment to its students, its ability to teach, its encouragement of critical thinking and its interaction with teachers. It also evaluates opportunities to develop career-enhancing skills. It takes into account the quality of the institution's services, the teaching environment and access to learning materials, the mobility of Erasmus+ students and the proportion of international students.
Among the academic novelties for this academic year, the University will launch five new master's degrees: the Executive Master's in Big Data Science, at the postgraduate headquarters in Madrid; the Master's in Business Management Pharmabio Tech, also in Madrid; the Master's in Management at IESE; and the double Master's MIEP+MUPO (University Master's in Educational and Psychological Intervention and University Master's in Teaching with a specialisation in Guidance), at the Pamplona campus. This section is completed with the master's degree in Industrial Engineering, which until now was only offered in San Sebastian and will now also be offered from Madrid.The academic offer is divided into 38 bachelor's degrees, 14 double degrees, 13 bilingual degrees, 43 master's degrees and 20 doctoral programmes.
