Welcome

The University of the Balearic Islands invites you to study and research in a privileged backdrop, where the peace, tranquillity and wellbeing of Mediterranean living come together in perfect harmony with a work-oriented environment designed to educate, generate knowledge and innovate, while always aspiring to excellence in research and quality.

As you are captivated by the striking Serra de Tramuntana Mountains, which became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2010, and the warm Mediterranean Sea, our university campus in Palma opens its doors to offer you its vast experience in language learning and to enable you to enjoy a multilingual environment in a culturally rich and diverse society. It is not by chance that more than 160 different languages from all around the world come together in the Balearic Islands, alongside the two official languages that are most widely spoken here: Catalan, our own language, and Spanish.

In this privileged environment that has been a point of attraction for distinguished public figures, artists and writers from all around Europe and the globe for centuries, the UIB is one of the country’s leading universities in teaching, research, international cooperation and technological development and innovation. The UIB is a time-honoured member of prominent international university networks, it has attracted countless students from abroad and successfully joined the European Space for Higher Education. It is a university committed to building the European Union, and an institution that aspires to become a motor of economic growth and wellbeing for the people.
