Universidad Nacional de Colombia
Bogotá, Colombia


University description (as per official university website)


The Universidad Nacional de Colombia promotes equal access to the Colombian education system; it provides the largest offering of academic programs and trains competent and socially responsible professionals.

It contributes to the development and re-significance of the Nation project; it studies and enriches the cultural, natural and environmental country's heritage. As it, assists to the scientific, technological, cultural and artistic order, with academic and research autonomy.


The University’s purpose is to increase the knowledge through investigation, to pass on knowledge through education, learning and interaction processes that are related to new national realities, leading the changes that the Superior Education System requires.

In the same way, searches for the formation of individuals that are based on the own codes of modernity (science, ethics and esthetics) with a great capacity of abstraction, suitable for the experimentation, team work and a great capacity of adapting to change.
