Universities in the Basque country

There are four universities in the Basque country:

  • the University of the Basque Country,
  • the University of Deusto,
  • the University of Navarre,
  • and the University of Mondragón.

The first one is also known as UPV/EHU, short for “Universidad del País Vasco/Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea”. It is a public university, and has campuses in all three provinces of the autonomous community. Its total number of students is comparable to the one of the University of Illinois (and greater than that of the other three universities combined).

The University of Deusto (Deustuko Unibertsitatea) is a Jesuit-owned private university, and like UPV/EHU, it is one of the most prestigious universities of Spain (but it’s much smaller than UPV/EHU).

The University of Navarre is a relatively small Opus Dei-governed university, but has campuses in five cities (the most important location is Pamplona, the others are San Sebastián, Madrid and Barcelona).

The University of Mondragón (Mondragon Unibertsitatea) is a private university with main campus in Mondragón, Gipuzkoa. It was established in 1997.
