UC3M, the second Spanish university in attraction of international talent


Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) is the second university in attracting international talent to its faculty, according to government sources published in the El Pais newspaper.  UC3M has 5.9 % of all international teaching faculty that are working in Spanish public universities, while the average in these institutions is 1.8%.

With this figure, UC3M is in second place nationally, behind Universidad Pompeu Fabra (12.1%) and ahead of the universities Autónoma de Barcelona (4.6 %), Politécnica de Cataluña (3.7 %), Rovira y Virgili (3,5 %) and Autónoma de Madrid (3.2 %).

Among these 6 institutions (the only ones with a figure higher than 3%) are those which make up the Alianza 4 Universidades (UAB, UAM, UC3M and UPF), which was created a decade ago with a commitment to promoting excellence in teaching and scientific research.

These data come from the Government’s response to a parliamentary question posed by a socialist representative regarding the current percentage of international professors in the Spanish public universities, broken down by Autonomous regions, provinces and universities.
