The main aim of the University of Lleida is provide high standards of teaching with quality services throughout the university community that reach society beyond the campus gates. Students make up most of the UdL community, and our objective is to ensure that they enjoy the teaching and learning processes involved.
The University of Lleida has managed to achieve a high position in different areas of research. Currently, the UdL has 94 research groups that develop their activity in various areas of knowledge. The UdL holds the 8th position in Spain in productivity of research (Rankings ISSUE, BBVA Foundation, 2013), the 6th in source normalized impact per paper (CyD 2012) and the 2nd in excellence and leadership (CyD 2014).
The Student Council is the highest body of representation for UdL students. It is intended as a meeting place to debate, discuss and suggest proposals and agreements for improvement.
In comparison with other universities, the UdL boasts one of the highest proportions of student representation on its governing bodies.
The Student Council has a general council – which is located on the Rectorate Campus – and individual school councils, which are headquartered at the respective schools.
In addition, the Council also provides a number of services, such as the University Accommodation Service, the Tutoring Exchange Service, the Exam Service, the Binding Service, the carpooling service known as Vaig i Vinc, etc.
The Student Council is not associated with any political group, and students from all backgrounds are involved in it who share a single objective: to ensure that the students have a say and contribute to improving the university system.
