This is a leading private Spanish university based in Mercia in south-eastern Spain. The university was founded in 1996 and is based in a historic monastery. The University has also opened a second campus in Cartagena. The university offers courses across a range of areas including Business, Law, Architecture, Languages, Computer Science, Psychology, Education and Allied Health. It is probably best known for Sports Science and has two professional sports teams (Football, Basketball).
The university has over 15,000 students, with around 2,000 of them being international. The University is keen to increase student numbers and sees international recruitment as its key route to growth. The key markets they are focusing on are China, India and Mexico. The university already teaches a number of UG and PG programmes in English and would like to identify a UK university who would be interested in developing a number of dual degree programmes. Initially, they would like to focus on a mobility model (2+2, 3+1 1+.5 etc) however they would also like to look at developing programmes that could be delivered completely on campus. They also wish to look at student mobility, they are happy to host groups from the UK for a short period, and also keen to look at longer mobility in both directions, as well as research.
Initially, they would like to focus on Business, Tourism and Sports Science, but are clear they are also open to look at other areas they teach. I believe they could be a very good long term partner, whilst the initial focus will be on dual degree programmes (mobility) there will be scope to develop other models.
