Schools and University

As part of SEK Educational Institution, SEK Schools work in close partnership with Universidad Camilo José Cela (UCJC), located in Madrid. Established in 2000, UCJC is an award winning dynamic and innovative institution of higher learning and research.

Aware that the world is interdependent, complex and changing, UCJC offers up-to-date and innovative education and training in every field of work specialisation. The goal is for students to acquire an interdisciplinary preparation and a set of transversal skills that complement their academic and professional training. These skills are tackled in a set of areas that range from the personal to the social sphere, promoting a holistic transformation process through learning. These skills are taught in The Hive (La Colmena) using challenge-based learning defined around our strategic axes: Entrepreneurship, digitization, social impact and wellbeing.
