The URV was created in 1991 by the Parliament of Catalonia from the already existing university faculties and schools. In this way the Tarragona University of the 16th century was restored. From the very first day its aim has been very clear: to place knowledge at the service of society so as to contribute to the social and economic development of its environment, which has gradually transformed over time.
Social and cultural changes have opened the doors to a new framework in which our students and future workers are obliged to interact in Europe. At the URV we train professionals under the precepts of European harmonization, a key factor for opening the doors to a world of work without frontiers. And we do so by providing 52 programmes of study in a wide variety of knowledge areas for over 12,000 students.
The data show that the URV is not only one of the leading universities in Catalonia but also one of the leading universities in the European area for the quality of its teaching, its commitment to continuous training and the excellence of its research, development and innovation.
On behalf of the Rovira i Virgili University (URV), welcome to our website. Here you will find all the most important information about our institution: first- and second-cycle courses, doctoral programmes and lifelong learning, research, knowledge and technology transfer, university services, management and governance.
We would also like this website to transmit an image of our University as a modern higher education public institution that is at the service of a dynamic region, the southern regions of Catalonia. We firmly believe in the harmonious development of society by generating knowledge and training professionals and citizens who defend the values of humanism, public-spiritedness and respect for the environment, and at the same time we are committed to the process of convergence towards the European Areas of Higher Education and Research.
For all these reasons, I hope you enjoy your online visit to the URV and that it will help us become good travelling companions.
