The Autonomous University of Madrid is a public institute located in Madrid. This university was founded in 1968. Cantoblanco, its main campus, is located on the northern outskirts of Madrid. The medical campus is south of Cantoblanco, near La Paz University Hospital, where students study medicine, biochemistry, nursing, human nutrition, and dietetics.

The primary language of UAM is Spanish and most undergraduate, and graduate courses are taught in Spanish. However, some master's courses are available in English, including microfinance, entrepreneurship, biotechnology, and theoretical physics programs.

This university is divided into 8 faculties and superior schools that coordinate and support most of the institute's academic and administrative activity. Each of these faculties is divided into departments combining research and teaching different subjects. UAM totals up to eight research institutes and 59 departments. In addition, it has seven associate schools, which are not wholly of the institution's administrative structure but come under UAM's academic regulations.
