Blanquerna Faculty of Psychology, Education and Sports Sciences (URL)

With a history spanning 65 years and 20,000 students having received degrees since the institution was set up in 1948, the Blanquerna Faculty of Psychology, Education and Sports Sciences is a leading centre in training professionals in the fields of education, psychology and sport. It is one of the founding institutions of Ramon Llull University and has received the Creu de Sant Jordi (Cross of St George).

Commitment to education

In 2012, the Catalan government presented the Fundació Blanquerna with the Creu de Sant Jordi in recognition of its work in education. Since its beginnings as a centre linked to the Bishopric of Barcelona, it has excelled in the field of training of teachers and education professionals. Currently it offers courses on psychology, speech therapy, infant and primary school teaching, translation and physical activity. It offers degrees, postgraduate studies, Masters, PhDs and ongoing training, as well as work experience in leading companies with which it has agreements. The faculty has 250 lecturers and more than 3000 students enrolled.

Its Christian heritage has led it to establish itself as a non-profit institution, and the faculty reinvests any profits in teaching, as well as charitable projects

A pioneering institution

The Blanquerna Faculty of Psychology, Education and Sports Sciences is housed in a modern building in the heart of Bonanova, one of Barcelona's most exclusive areas. Just like the La Salle School of Engineering and Architecture, also in Bonanova, and the Institut Químic de Sarrià (IQS - Institute of Chemistry), the faculty subscribes to the private and religious educational training of this well-off neighbourhood and, like these other institutions, was a founding member of Ramon Llull University, in 1991.
