Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile aspires to achieve excellence in the creation and transfer of knowledge and in providing a Catholic-based education to train individuals to serve the Church and society.
We have a permanent commitment to quality in our service, in fulfillment of our founding mission. We hold strict and rigorous academic standards and adopt international best practices from top universities around the world.
The University has four campuses in Santiago and one in Villarrica, in the South of Chile. Each one has its own identity and is linked to a different moment in the university’s history.
The University is made up of 18 faculties, which include schools and institutes; an interdisciplinary institute, the UC College program, and the Villarrica Campus. Together they cover all areas of knowledge.
The UC was born with the mission of offering the country and its young people a distinctive form of education, based on the values of the Catholic Church. We are an institution of public service and vocation, and with our work, we generate assets that are oriented towards making Chile a better country.
