Coneix Blanquerna

Welcome to Blanquerna

Andreu Ibarz

On behalf of Blanquerna-URL, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to you. We are a university community of excellence, a non-profit institution and a co-founding member of Ramon Llull University, Catalonia's first private university, of which we are part along with ESADE, IQS, La Salle, Pere Tarrés, Faculty of Philosophy, Ebro Observatory, Institut Vidal i Barraquer, Institut Borja de Bioètica and ESDI.

Today's university faculties emerged from the innovative School of Teaching, which was set up in 1948 to contribute to our country's pedagogical revival. All the faculties are located in iconic parts of Barcelona and make up a new concept for the urban campus: the Faculty of Psychology, Education and Sports Sciences, the Faculty of Health Sciences and the Faculty of Communication and International Relations.

At Blanquerna-URL, we are inspired by the learned Ramon Llull's humanist tradition, which involves a different way of teaching. We train qualified professionals, providing them with good prospects for employability and so that they are able to make a positive impact on society. We are a plural university community, inspired by the principles of Christian humanism, whose mission is the comprehensive education of people to enable them to become competent, ethical professionals, committed to social transformation.

I hope your visit to our website will help you find what you are looking for, but I also invite you to find out more about our faculties through an in-person visit or at the different information sessions we run throughout the year. We are at the service of society and we believe in the transfer of knowledge to contribute to the construction of a better, more humane world.
