About

History

 UAM is a Spanish public university established in 1968, along with the autonomous universities of Barcelona and Bilbao (now University of the Basque Country) during one of Spain's most ambitious educational reforms, which took place during the late 1960s and the early 1970s.

Education

Since 1971, the university's main campus has been located in Cantoblanco, a rural area in the northern outskirts of Madrid. Despite being part of the municipality of Madrid, the campus is nearer the towns of Alcobendas and Tres Cantos.

My university has offered me a great experience with my classes and teachers. However, I've always wanted to have the opportunity to study abroad.

The university provides a great program of translation studies as well as services and teachers. However, I wish I've had an opportunity to study abroad.

Brief UAM review
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

The Autonomous University of Madrid is the older university of the city and it counts with a good qualified amount of professors. The campus embrace international students and you can see it every day. However, the methodology could improve and be more modern.
