Pontifical Catholic University of Chile

About US

The greatest assets of Universidad Católica are its talented and restless students who are socially oriented and genuinely interested in learning and in leadership. These students, together with an excellent group of academics who develop and transfer their knowledge to them, have made the UC educational project a complete success. This project is inspired by Catholic values and works to serve both the Church and society. The University has always aimed to achieve a solid education, founded in the sciences, arts, humanities and Catholic morals. Thus, the University aims for its students to be not only technically and scientifically prepared, but also to be open to different human realities and to the social and personal responsibilities involved in the complete development of a society. Throughout the history of the University, this first aim has been continuously fulfilled.
