Universidad Del Rosario is a Colombian university founded on Roman Catholic principles, in 1653 by Fray Cristobal de Torres. Located in Bogotá, due to its important place in Colombian history, it is known as “the Cradle of the Republic”. It was founded, similar to Salamanca and began with four Faculties: Medicine, Law, Theology, and Philosophy. Most faculties reside at the Cloister, the main campus located in the historic-geographical center of Bogotá. It also included a private all-male traditional primary and secondary school until 2008.

Their Rector is currently in contact with European Agencies, looking for the agency that will study the possibility of an International Accreditation.
