Universidad San Jorge

Universidad San Jorge is a young and dynamic institution, opened in 2005 and located on a modern university campus on the outskirts of Zaragoza in northern Spain. The university offers programmes in the areas of health sciences, media and communication, business and law, education, architecture and informatics and currently has around 2500 students.

As a small university community, we offer visiting students a personalised and friendly approach to teaching which guarantees a learning environment that can be adapted to individual needs and an international experience that will contribute to your future professional development.


Zaragoza is medium-sized working Spanish city situated about halfway between Madrid and Barcelona and is the capital of the region of Aragón. The city has a population of about 750,000 and although it is off the normal tourist trail for Spain, it has a fascinating Roman, Moorish and Christian heritage which is reflected the historic monuments and buildings that are now integrated into its contemporary make-up.

The city is a safe and economical alternative to other more tourist destinations in Spain and visitors are always given a warm welcome by the locals. The large student population makes for a diverse cultural agenda, a lively nightlife and a broad variety of sports and open-air activities.
