Describe your organisation

The University of Burgos is located within the Campus of San Amaro, which boasts an extremely fine historic and artistic enclave: the Hospital del Rey. A former hospital for pilgrims of the Road to Santiago, it was founded in 1195 by Alfonso VII. Within the university campus both the ancient heritage and the most avant-garde facilities and technology coexist in a perfect dialogue of harmony that favours both teaching and innovation. 

Furthermore, the University of Burgos is located just a short distance from the core centre of Burgos, a city whose artistic jewels, monuments and history are a lure and an invitation to study the Spanish language and culture. Burgos is also a privileged city, peppered with most attractive parks, gardens, promenades and natural spaces, some of which can be enjoyed within the university campus, making possible both contact with nature and the practise of leisure and sporting activities. The University of Burgos has currently about 10.000 students and offers courses leading to over 50 under and post degrees.
