As the privileged destination they are, the Balearic Islands have received countless public figures throughout the centuries. Artists, writers and painters from all around the world have made our islands their home. Hence, the archipelago is far more than merely one of the foremost tourism centres in the Mediterranean. It is an environment that generates creativity, art, music and gastronomy. A paradise with a captivating landscape.
The Balearic Islands are pure diversity. An archipelago in which each island has its own distinct character and features. Islands full of history, with a cultural and monumental heritage that embodies the footsteps and the testimony of all the cultures that have sailed into their harbours.
The UIB has a population of nearly 18,200 students, 1000 professors and researchers and 500 administrative and services professionals. If the UIB were a municipality, it would be the 16th largest town in the Balearic Islands, out of a total of 67.
Students from partner universities in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Morocco, Russian Federation, Serbia or Tunisia may undertake part of their university studies at the Universitat de les Illes Balears through ERASMUS+ Partner Countries KA107.
