The university centres and buildings are located in various places in the urban area of Granada, giving the city its particular university style, since of the 270,000 inhabitants of the capital, 60,000 are university students.
But Granada also fulfils other special requirements: historically it is the last redoubt of Islam in Western Europe (the Alhambra and the Generalife are samples of the splendour of this civilisation); Granada is also a Renaissance city (the Hospital Real or the Cathedral are only two examples of Granada's well-preserved historical heritage).
During the summer, the University of Granada organises short courses aimed at university students and also postgraduates who are already working, who wish to update previously obtained knowledge or to specialise in various fields.
University of Granada - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (400 words)
Capital of the former Nazari Kingdom, Granada was the last city on the Iberian Peninsula to be conquered from the Muslims in 1492, an event which was to mark the formation of Spain.
The University of Granada was founded in 1531, under the initiative of the Emperor Carlos V, by means of a Papal Bull from Pope Clemente VII.
With 475 years of tradition, the University of Granada has been an exceptional witness to history, as its influence in the city's social and cultural environment grew until it was to become, over a period of almost five centuries, an intellectual and cultural nucleus in Southern Spain in its own right.
