The university programme for seniors opens a space for meeting and participation, aimed at a sector of the population that is eager to broaden its knowledge and is over 50 years of age.
The University of Oviedo has developed a training programme with a specific offer with contents of interest for this sector of society. The programme has a duration of five academic years and consists of a compulsory part, made up of common subjects for all students, an optional part in the form of workshops and which caters for the more specific interests of each student, and a free choice offer within the framework of the cultural activity developed by the University. PUMUO has branches in Oviedo, Gijón, Avilés, Mieres, and Luarca.
The programme's teaching subjects are grouped around four thematic blocks: Humanities; Legal and Social Sciences, Health and Life Sciences and Science and Technology.
