Universitat Jaume I
The Universitat Jaume I de Castelló is a higher education teaching and research institution created in 1991, which sets out to foster the social, economic and cultural development of the local community through the creation and diffusion of knowledge.
From the outset, the Universitat Jaume I has worked towards the goal of establishing itself as a dinamic and entrepreneurial university, its aims being excellence in teaching, research and the services it provides for the community. It presently offers 26 degrees, all subject to continuous evaluation. It boasts some 13,000 students, a number which does not cause problems of overcrowding and enables it to offer personal student attention.
