Universidad de Salamanca Overview

In the year 1218 king Alfonso IX of Leon founded the University of Salamanca, which is considered to be the oldest Spanish universities in existence.

The university is made up of 9 teaching and administrative campuses in Ávila, Zamora, Béjar y Salamanca. Therefore, it is characterised by its widely dispersed geography. In the city of Salamanca, the educational centres are grouped into six campuses: the Historical campus, Campus of Sciences, Campus de Canalejas, Campus Miguel de Unamuno (Campus of Bio(health/Sciences and Campus of FES-Law), Campus Ciudad Jardín and Campus Villamayor. The University of Salamanca is of medium size with more than  30,000 registered students.

Swansea University currently has agreements in place with the University of Salamanca for the College of Arts and Humanities (History) and the Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law.
