Universidad de La Sabana
Chia Common Bridge, Colombia


University description (as per official university website)

The Universidad de La Sabana is one of Colombia’s youngest universities and has already won the respect of the educational community. La Sabana was awarded the High Quality Institutional Accreditation by the National Ministry of Education in 2006 and is currently one of 16 Colombian universities that have been granted this endorsement.

La Sabana is going through one of its most important moments of academic and institutional development. At present, there are 21 research groups classified by Colciencias, the government office that certifies the quality of research groups in Colombian universities. There are also 20 emerging groups that promote “semilleros de investigación” (research “offshoots”) for students in all programmes.

The university currently runs 17 undergraduate programmes, a number that will increase shortly. There are also 31 specialisation programmes and five master’s programmes: Master in Education, Master in Process Management and Direction, Master in Business Administration (MBA), Master of Nursing, and Master in English Language Teaching – Autonomous Learning Environments. The university expects to have 17 masters programmes and two Ph.D. programmes in the future.

La Sabana ´s Campus lies 15 miles up the main highway out of Bogotá to the north, on the edge of the town of Chía (and, incidentally, on the way to many of the tourist sites mentioned in the guide to Bogotá The setting is a mixture of rural calm and charm, bordering on a green-belt around Bogotá, and semi-urban facilities.

The construction of the present premises of Universidad de La Sabana -University Campus “Puente del Comun- started in 1987. This academic complex was planned as a Campus centred on the human person and as a focus of development for its area of influence. The campus grounds cover 62 hectares. Of these, three hectares are sports fields and spaces for outdoor activities.

The Universidad de La Sabana is carrying out a project for the expansion of its campus and the updating of its laboratories and technological equipment. At present, over 32,000 square meters have been built. The buildings include, among others, 29 laboratories, nine buildings with academic and administrative spaces, and the Octavio Arismendi Posada Library. Currently the library holds 79,761 titles with 116,434 volumes, subscriptions to 245 journals and magazines, subscription to two bibliographic information networks, and subscriptions to 12 Internet data bases.

The Campus is a self-contained unit, but access to and from Bogotá and with the town of Chía is easy - a large number of our students live in Bogotá and have no problem in getting to the university and back, on their own or by public transport.


Universidad de La Sabana pioneers the internationalisation of research, teaching and social outreach.

The university’s curricula are designed according to international standards that allow for the global education of the students catering to their international mobility and for attracting foreign students. Within this context, La Sabana offers its students the possibility of studying part of their majors at universities in Germany, Australia, France, Japan, Spain, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, the United States and Canada, among others. Some of the students also have the double degree option for undergraduate studies. They may also be awarded the undergraduate degree from Universidad de La Sabana and their postgraduate degree from an international university.

In addition international students can participate in exchange programmes, internships, medical practices, specializations and Spanish as a foreign language. It also promotes intensive English courses abroad.

The university has hosted students from Venezuela, Germany, the United States, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Salvador, Spain, France, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Israel, Iran, Italy, Lebanon, Nicaragua, Romania, Russia, Sweden and Korea, among others.
