On the 2nd of July 2002, the Parliament of Navarre passed a Navarrese Law modifying the Law on the Creation of the Public University of Navarre on order to initiate university studies in Tudela.
In compliance with this legislative directive, the Public University of Navarre started academic work in the capital of Navarre’s Ribera region, setting up Master’s in Agro-food Upper Business Management in October 2004. The Specialist in Quality Management course got under way in February 2005 and March saw activities begin in the Classroom of Experience.
The courses in Physiotherapy and Technical Mechanical Industrial Engineering (advanced studies in Industrial Design) began in 2006 at Hospital Reina Sofía and the ETI High School, provisional sites until the Tudela Campus was opened in the academic year 2008-2009.
