Description

The University of Vigo, founded in 1990, is a public institution located in the autonomous area of Galicia in north western Spain. It prides itself to be a Galician, international-looking university.. 

Its premises are divided into three campuses. The Lagoas-Marcosende campus, which is 15 kilometers away from the city of Vigo, focuses on technology. The Lagoas campus in downtown Ourense centers on water research that produces social and economic value. The Pontevedra campus, also located in an urban setting, mixes arts, sports and humanities.

The degrees offered at the University of Vigo spread across science, technology, social sciences, law and humanities. However, the university is also considered one of the most technical universities in Galicia, with a particular focus on telecommunications, computer science, industrial engineering and environment engineering. 

The institution's campuses are lively, with a lot of small film festivals, concerts, art exhibitions and sports taking place throughout the year. The Outdoor Campus is an experiment the university has undertaken where students improve their teamwork spirit and skills, and strategic thinking and problem solving ability by getting involved in sports and socio-cooperative games. Sports you can try out on campus are fencing, introductory rugby, tennis, archery and athletics. 

The University of Vigo is the only Spanish higher education institution to have sent two micro-satellites into space. It publishes the interdisciplinary journal of marine studies Thalassas
