Artistic and Vocational Courses (June-July 2016)

Casa de Porras, Excursion

At the UGR we are firmly committed to promoting culture and the arts. In order to achieve this goal, we encourage both the university community and the general public to propose and develop cultural activities. These activities, which are organised through the UGR, are a great opportunity to develop your creativity and skills while pursuing new talents.

Courses at the Casa de Porras

The UGR’s Casa de Porras (also known as the ‘Casa del Estudiante’) works intensively throughout the year to promote cultural activities in the city of Granada. The centre also strives to enable students to gain new skills and abilities in a challenging and engaging learning environment. Additionally, we hold exhibitions and offer members of the University community and the public the opportunity to display their artwork free of charge, set up courses and workshops, and hold seminars.

You can also obtain an official certificate from the UGR's Casa de Porras to prove that you took part in each course (please note that in order for a certificate to be awarded you must attend at least 80% of classes).
