It offers 42 degrees and 49 official Master programmes in almost all areas of knowledge taught in 9 Faculties and 3 Technical Schools. There is a total of 11.000 students enrolled, with more than 2000 new graduates every year. In the URV work near 1000 full time Academic staff and 700 administration staff and services.
