Universitat Rovira i Virgili

Introduction

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.

In just 23 years the university has developed into a prominent institution domestically and globally and URV is ranked among the top 100 universities of the world under 50 years old by 'Times Higher Education 100 Under 50' in a ranking that provides a glimpse into the future, showcasing the rising stars which show great potential.

The URV in rankings:

  • Times Higher Education World University Rankings (2013-14): 351-400
  • Times Higher Education 100 Under 50 (2014): 66
  • Academic Ranking of World Universities (Shanghai Ranking): 151-200
  • CWTS Leiden Ranking 2014: 180

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.

Rovira i Virgili University is the university of southern Catalonia:

The Province of Tarragona is comprised of cities with distinguished cultural heritage, such as Tarragona, home to Roman ruins designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO; Tortosa, a mediaeval city; and the Catalan Modernist city of Reus, the birthplace and home of the architect Antoni Gaudí.

Its strategic location gives the region an extremely dynamic economy. It is home to the largest petrochemical complex in southern Europe, and is one of the most important tourist destinations on the continent.

The capital, the city of Tarragona, offers a wide variety of leisure and recreational activities: beaches, sports, facilities, summer festivals, and a large selection of restaurants where you can try the finest wines and oils as well as the local cuisine.

Scholarships and grants:

The URV offers more than 100 scholarships to new master’s students with outstanding academic records.
