The University of Oviedo has traditionally been one of the cultural drivers in Asturias. Through its University Extension scheme, the academic institution programmes an intense schedule of free activities that place music, theatre, talks, exhibitions and films within everyone’s reach.
The University Extension Classrooms are a clear commitment to bringing knowledge to society via subject matter that focuses on music, theatre, literature, law, archaeology, all of which is open to public participation, free of charge. The classrooms have a cap on admission, which is covered in strict order of registration.
By participating in these activities, university students who can accredit at least 90% attendance may apply for recognition of 2 ECTS credits (updated courses of study) or obtain 3 ungraded "free-choice" credits (non-EHEA-adapted studies).
The programme for these classes changes every year and, in some cases, different themes are offered each semester:
- Theatre Classroom
- Pop-Rock Music Classroom
- Music Classroom: Opera and Zarzuela
- Oviedo Group Latin American Music Classroom: (AMIGO)
- Reading Classroom: Prose
- Reading Classroom: Poetry
- Debating Classroom
- Law Classroom
- Archaeology Classroom
