10 Reasons You Should Go To UCAM

Universidad Católica San Antonio de Murcia (UCAM) is the Catholic University of Murcia, one of the fastest growing private university that has emerged to be the third largest in Spain with highly sought after and recognised programmes across Europe since it was birthed 16 years ago. Located near the Southeastern coast of the Iberian Peninsula, in the region of Murcia, UCAM livens up the culture in the region by being the leader of university sport leagues with a thriving fan-base in the cities of Murcia.

As you are probably already familiar with the template of viral social media feeds we amuse ourselves to during the mini pauses we take in our daily routine, here is UCAM’s bid at a lighthearted article to peak your interest in this particular university and the region it is in.

As we believe that brevity and succinctness is sacred in the digital age of multitasking urban dwellers, we hope to introduce UCAM as a study destination in a fashion that appeals to your appetite for visual spectacle and humour.

You can find more information about our university on our international website or on our University’s profile on Studylink.
