Universidad de Deusto Overview

The University of Deusto was inaugurated in 1886. Bilbao, a seaport and commercial city which was undergoing considerable industrial growth during that era, was chosen as the ideal location for the university. Bilbao is the centre of a metropolitan area with more than one million inhabitants, a city traditionally open to Europe. It is also an important harbour and a commercial and financial centre of the Basque Country and the north of Spain.

Swansea University currently has agreements in place with the University of Deusto for the College of Arts and Humanities and the department of Hispanic Studies.
