The University of Deusto was inaugurated in 1886. The concerns and cultural interest of the Basque Country in having their own university, as well as the interest of the Jesuits in establishing higher studies in some part of the Spanish State coincided in its conception.
Research at DEUSTO has seen a significant growth during the last decades, following a path towards excellence through the increased participation in international projects and networks.
Carrying out excellence is a robust body of professionals and researchers with a strong trajectory and expertise arranged around 9 interdisciplinary areas and 24 Teams of Excellence. Overall DEUSTO provides a flexible research ecosystem that nurtures international and inter-sectoral collaboration, and enables our researchers to cross-fertilise ideas and address local and global issues from an interdisciplinary perspective.
One of the top priorities of the University of Deusto is to help graduates find a job in fields related to their degrees. For this reason, Deusto Alumni has a Full Labour Insertion Centre that has been working with our graduates and companies for over 7 years.
Deusto Alumni has collaboration agreements and programmes with several entities to promote internships here and in other countries. In some cases, these first experiences mean direct access to the first job.
The Student Services Office looks to respond to any extracurricular needs that students may encounter. This service is aimed at all the students at the University.
The main aim of the Social Action and Inclusion service is to help to enhance the quality of life of the people who are part of our university, with special attention to those who are in a disadvantaged situation or have specific problems.
You will find the facilities, resources and services you need for learning and for your life at university on both campuses.
The Housing and Welcome Service has been created to make students’ stay more comfortable, pleasant and easier. We offer information and organise activities for students to enjoy and discover the benefits of living in Bilbao and San Sebastian.
The Library places special emphasis on new technologies, aimed at facilitating team work, study and research. A good example of this is the number of computers available in the reference rooms and media library, the laptop borrowing service, etc..
The Loyola digital Library gives access to full texts of the bibliographic heritage of Deusto’s University Library and that of the Sanctuary of Loyola.
Wi-Fi connection is available throughout the library. You need a device (laptop, tablet, mobile phone) that is equipped for wireless connection.Eduroam
