History and Objectives:
It was originally founded in 1495 when Lope Gómez de Marzoa created the School of Grammar there. However, it was fully confirmed as a university in 1501 when Pope Julius II issued a papal bull to prove its authenticity. At that time, the main objective of the university was religious instruction and this took priority over any other kind of teaching. In 1555 it separated itself from religious instruction with the help of Juan Álvarez de Toledo and started to work towards developing other academic fields. From this point on the university dedicated itself to scientific progress and the discovery of new technologies. In addition to this, the university does not just concentrate on the field of science but also the arts and humanities which feature so highly in its culture and history.
