UCAM Universidad Católica San Antonio de Murcia is a private university founded in 1996 with a clear mission: to provide students with the knowledge and skills to serve society, to contribute to the further expansion of human knowledge through research as an integral part of the development of man and mankind, and to participate in the evangelical mission of the Catholic Church in the areas of education and culture.
Person to Person, Face to Face
UCAM students can count on personalized attention that fits their needs. UCAM staff value personal relationships in the learning context. This is why each student is given a personal tutor and class sizes are deliberately kept small. The variety of the academic programs on offer, constantly adapted to the real needs of society and recognized by the European Higher Education Area, reflects this core guideline: each student is a reason for UCAM to continue its work of striving for perfection.
Learning in Action
The Catholic University of Saint Anthony empowers students to develop their own real-world skills. The campus’ top class infrastructure, its labs and studios allied with the practical subjects will get students ready to put the acquired knowledge into action. Students have to complete an internship in a public or private institution where they will receive a taste of their future field of expertise. For the more academic profiles UCAM provides more than 50 research groups that work in close collaboration with enterprises such as Coca Cola, Danone, Vodafone or Siemens.
More than Knowledge - Values
As a Catholic institution committed to the Church, UCAM does more than provide top quality education. The transmission of values is an important pillar of the university and makes the difference in the future of our students: they will not only become great professionals but they will also develop strong personal ethics and empathy. UCAM’s formation is integral, comprehensive and provides opportunities for the human development through volunteering activities, congresses, seminars, research projects and religious services.
Open and Global
With a strong international vocation, UCAM students have the opportunity to develop a global perspective thanks to the joint programs, collaborations and exchange agreements with more than 150 universities all over the world, including UC Berkeley, Stanford, Università di Bologna, National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and PUC - Rio Grande do Sul. UCAM centers in Cuba, Jakarta, Singapore and Brussels work together to further develop the university’s international strategy.
The Elite of Sports

Murcia's Lifestyle, Your Lifestyle
UCAM’s Campus de los Jeronimos is located in Murcia, the capital city of the southeastern region of Spain, where the Mediterranean weather joins the natural beauties of the beaches of Costa Cálida, with the mountains and fields of the Huerta de Europa. The heritage of Spanish culture, known for flamenco, tapas and fiesta, is reflected in Murcia’s people: welcoming, warm, enthusiastic and sociable. As a midsize region (1.5 million inhabitants), Murcia is full of artistic and social dynamics with especially affordable living costs, a safe environment and modern infrastructure.
