The University of Cádiz

The University of Cadiz, an institution that celebrates its 40th anniversary this year and which sets out for one of the most interesting projects from its creation -the European Universities seal- without setting aside its vocation for the American continent and its relations with the Mediterranean neighbours.


With the constitution of its first Senate, the 30th of October 1979 marked the birth of the University of Cadiz (UCA), the culmination of a long process in the demand for a university institution that would recover the fruitful tradition of higher education studies initiated and developed with the support of maritime and commercial activities in modern and contemporary times for Cadiz.
