The International University of the Rioja in Peru is a university committed to Peruvian society. It provides its students with a rigorous education with European quality. SUNEDU recognizes the official nature of the undergraduate and postgraduate programs taught by UNIR.

UNIR’s degrees are verified by the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation (ANECA) and approved by the University Council, both competent organizations in Spain. As such, its degrees are completely valid in both Spain and the European Higher Education Area, and in countries whose legislation allows their recognition, like Ecuador.

UNIR is based on innovation in education that utilizes new technology to develop an online method that is upheld by four pillars: Online classes, a personal tutor that accompanies the student from their first day, continuous evaluation, and educational resources.

The Republic of Peru’s Congress also endorses this online educational model that is a benchmark in both Spain and Latin America. As such, the university has several agreements with Peruvian institutions to create collaborative frameworks.
