The University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria offers a wide range of degrees in all the major areas of knowledge, with the aim of providing comprehensive training to those who come to it, in a commitment based on innovation, quality and internationalization.
The ULPGC was founded in 1989. Despite its youth, in just a few years it has managed to position itself as one of the leading Spanish universities, standing out in the use of new technologies, in research related to the marine and maritime fields, in international mobility programs and in its close involvement with local society, with healthy finances and high scientific productivity.
The ULPGC has six campuses, four of which are in Gran Canaria and another two on the islands of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura.
The ULPGC has more than 1,500 teachers who carry out an important research activity, supported by 115 research groups, some of which are international references, which has led the ULPGC to obtain the consideration of Campus of International Excellence in the marine-maritime area in 2010 by the Ministry of Education.
The ULPGC is committed to the creation of Science and Technology Parks (PCT) to stimulate the transfer of R+D+i results to the surrounding society, as well as to serve as a base for the creation of technology-based companies.
