Why study at UAO CEU?

1. Degree in Philosophy

A new official degree in Philosophy, from a Christian perspective, that is offered jointly by Abat Oliba CEU University (UAO CEU) and the Catholic University of Ávila (UCAV).

2. Methodology

The degree in Philosophy can be taken in person or remotely. Students have the option of attending classes two afternoons a week at Abat Oliba CEU University or studying the course from anywhere in the world thanks to our online teaching platform. This format means the degree can be combined with other studies or made to fit around your job. 

3. Comprehensive options

At the end of the degree, students will be able to go on to take the UAO CEU Master’s Degree in Humanistic and Social Studies in the same format, in person or online. This master’s degree introduces students to philosophical research, taking the anthropological and political thought of St. Thomas Aquinas as a point of reference.

The student will be able to complete their itinerary of philosophy studies with the doctoral programme in Humanities for the Contemporary World at the CEU International Doctoral School (CEINDO).


The degree in Philosophy is organised by the UAO CEU and the Catholic University of Ávila (UCAV), a Catholic university located in Ávila (Castilla y León). It is well known for their experience in offering
distance learning.

UCAV has three faculties: Social and Legal Sciences, Sciences and Arts, and Health Sciences

5. Extra-curricular educational activities

Given the fact that most of the teaching staff belong to consolidated research groups and university networks such as ICUSTA (International Council of Universities in the Spirit of Saint Thomas Aquinas), students will be able to take part in extra-curricular academic activities, such as seminars,
conferences and international conferences. This allows students to get involved in research tasks with presentations of papers, publication as part of conferences and philosophical journals, etc., sharing their learning with a wider academic community. Specialised diplomas are also offered, such as one in Theology.

6. Comprehensive options

Students can continue their studies after the undergraduate degree by taking the Official Master's Degree in Humanistic and Social Studies, cross-disciplinary training aimed at helping students access a PhD programme in the field of humanities and the social sciences.

7. International agreements

UAO CEU offers students the chance to go on international exchanges across the European Union, in the following countries: Germany, Poland, Ireland, the Netherlands, France, Italy and Austria.
We also have agreements outside the European Union, in the following countries: USA, Colombia, Argentina and Mexico.

Tuition fees correspond, solely and exclusively, to the provision of teaching as part of the programme enrolled on, and this is the only service offered in exchange for the payment of those fees. By enrolling, the student accepts that decisions made by the competent authorities may, directly or indirectly, render it necessary to carry out teaching, tutoring, work placements or assessment tests either in person or via distance learning.

The student accepts that they remain obliged to pay any such fees in full even if, for reasons beyond the control of the University, some of the educational activities included in the degree cannot be carried out as initially provided for in the course guides at the beginning of the academic year. If restrictions are part in place, the University will provide the student with a guarantee that the activity will be rescheduled when possible, taking into consideration the interests of the student and any other applicable academic criteria.


Once you've been accepted on the course, you can reserve your place at Abat Oliba CEU University, which guarantees you a place on the course, before you pass the “selectivity” university entrance exam* or other entry requirements.

Cancelling your place after reservation: students have until 30 June to cancel their reserved place. This means you can book now and cancel if your circumstances change later on.**
