University of Jaume I

The Universitat Jaume I (UJI) is the public university in the north of the Valencian Community, a region on the European Mediterranean coast located among the cities of Valencia, Barcelona and Madrid. Established in 1991, the UJI has positioned itself as a friendly university characterised by its personal attention, smooth-running management procedures and the high levels of participation of its members in university life, due, among other things, to its convenient size, with about 15,000 students, and its integrated, modern, functional and sustainable campus

The close relationship among lecturers and students at the Universitat Jaume I enables lecturers to reach a level of educational excellence that guarantees a clearly defined educational model based on lifelong learning, integral education and active participation in social progress based on the foundations of peaceful, equitable, supportive relationships and respect for the environment.

The UJI is also distinctive for the international outlook of its activities, a result of the need to open up to the world, characteristic of young European universities, and of the socioeconomic needs of the Valencian region.

Founded when the information society was fully immerse in the process of consolidation, the development of the Universitat Jaume I has been marked by advances in information and communication technologies (ICT). For this reason, the application of ICT in learning and research processes and in university management has always featured at the Universitat Jaume I, to the point that it was a pioneer in this field with initiatives such as the creation of the first Spanish web server or the first Centre for Education and New Technologies in Spain.

The quality management undertaken at the Universitat Jaume I both in the teaching sphere and in the administration and delivery of services is based on procedures in line with the most demanding international standards. The links that the UJI maintains with the business and institutional sectors and with the general community in Castelló are also very close. These links have allowed us to establish a privileged relationship with our surrounding area that facilitates work placements in companies and institutions and an optimal transfer of knowledge and integration in the labour market. These are, among others, the distinguishing features of a a consolidated and young university whose values are widely shared by members of a university community committed to making the Universitat Jaume I an exemplary public centre for training and research and a driving force for culture and the region's development.
