About

History

The process of founding the country's public university began on June 11, 1833 when a law proposed by then-Senator Dámaso Antonio Larrañaga was passed. It called for the creation of nine academic departments; the President of the Republic would pass a decree formally creating the departments once the majority of them were in operation. In 1836, the House of General Studies was formed.

I had a fantastic experience at Universidad de la República in Uruguay. I considered the academic lectures given to us as A class type and the professionalism and approach from the professors contributed a lot to the development and success of the students throughout their career.
