About

History

The Public University of Navarre was created in 1987 by the Parliament of Navarre and it is, consequently, a public university, young, modern and small in the Spanish university context, and located in the Pamplona and Tudela campuses.

Education

Its academic activity is developed in the areas of knowledge of the human and social sciences, health sciences and engineering; so, it is a fairly technical university. 

Research

The University develops cutting-edge basic research in many fields, serving both the economic and social development of its immediate environment and facilitating research that is transformed into innovation. To this end, the UPNA has put in place mechanisms for assessing research groups seeking continuous improvement, and it has developed instruments to facilitate the achievement of public and private funding of it. Among them, it is remarkable the Chairs programme, dedicated to research and funded by private institutions, along with the commercialization of patents through UNIVALUE (a company of the G9 Group -see below-).

Career

It should be noted that the teaching provision is tailored to its socio-economic environment: the 81% of the graduates have a job (source: Alumni Survey, 2011), which reflects a high rate of employment. Furthermore, it offers a wide range of degrees and up-to-date diplomas and specialization courses in the area of lifelong learning.

Services

Housing services

At first sight, the Arrosadia Campus is dominated by straight lines in its buildings and perspectives. The impressive 9,000 square metre Library, the largest of its buildings, forms the longitudinal axis of the campus. From the outside, it is seen as a solid prism which, inside, becomes an immense hall with a vault affording soft light, making it ideal for concentration and learning.

Library services

The Library is the centre of knowledge, a depository of science. It houses and distributes knowledge related to the different university disciplines, which is why the departmental buildings are located on both sides. It is a symbol and, at the same time, a reality. They all feed on the Library while increasing its contents with their teaching and research activities.
