Since then, the university has grown to include more than seventy degree courses, a student body of nearly 30,000, and four campuses in different cities, with Valladolid remaining the flagship campus. The University has been offering classes for Spanish language learners since the 1940s. The Language Center is now a premier destination for students who want to learn the language while living in the heart of the Castilla y Leon region. The University attracts many international students each year and offers language instruction at all levels, in small classes and with dedicated instructors. Coming to Valladolid is a fantastic opportunity to witness the rich traditions of a historic university and experience the Spanish way of life.
