Culture and sports

One of the key issues for the University of Oviedo is the University Extension, as it was one of the pioneering institutions regarding the development of this activity. In Asturias, the University Extension was created at the end of the 19th century, thanks to a group of intellectuals who were called the Group of Oviedo.

The promotion of culture and university activities everywhere in Asturias is the main objective for the University Extension, as a way to thank society for its support and trust in the academic institution. It is a contribution to the social, cultural and economic development of Asturias by means of courses, conferences and all kinds of training and cultural activities, developed with the institution's own resources or in collaboration with other public or private entities.

Project funded by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports and the Government of the Principality of Asturias in the framework of the Campus of International Excellence
