The University of the Balearic Islands comes directly from the Col·legi Miramar, founded by Ramon Llull. In 1483 he founded the Estudi General Lul·lià and from that time until 1978 several education institutions continued with this study center in Majorca (university, Faculty of Arts of the University of Barcelona). In 1978, between an important moment in the history of Spain and the Balearic Islands, was founded the University of the Balearic Islands. At that time by one hand, it was the beginning of the spanish political transition from a dictatorship to a democracy. On the othe hand it was the a good economic moment for the islands due to the tourism development.
From then until now, research facilities and have grown to be the current university bid. The campus has become a complete infrastructure with new buildings, laboratories and a complete and organized administrative structure that supports research and other activities that are carried out in the university itself and in several start ups. There is a residence and complete sports installations which are used by citizens of all ages as well as university community. The University Choir spreads vocal music to the island and several seniors learn more in the senior university. Nowadays, the University of the Balearic Islands is a modern, open institution that disseminates the knowledge and culture that is created in their differents departments to all the Balearic society.
