Originally founded as part of the Universidad de Valladolid in the 13th century, the University of Burgos became its own public university in 1994. The university now hosts over 10,000 students across its two campuses. The city of Burgos, the birth place of the Castilian language and the origin of Spanish, boasts three World Heritage sites distinguished by UNESCO: the gothic cathedral, the archeological sites of Atapuerca and the Museum of Human Evolution, and the Camino de Santiago (St. James Way), which crosses the city and the province of Burgos.

The University of Burgos offers exchange students the opportunity to choose from  intensive Spanish courses or select courses taught in English.
