Cuba’s flagship institution of higher learning was rated as excellent in the evaluation process carried out, this past October, by the National Accreditation Board (JAN). The accomplishment filled professors, workers and students alike with great pride, for good reason, since this is the first time a university in the country has been awarded the highest ranking.
The University of Havana (UH) leads the nation in scientific production, as evidenced by the fact that, in 2015, staff members received 21 prizes from the Academy of Sciences for their work, and in 2014, the number was 23.
The university offers 32 bachelor degree programs, 66 masters and 22 doctorates.
Unlike other institutions of higher learning which were also evaluated, all of UH undergraduate, postgraduate and doctorate programs eligible for consideration were accredited.
