JUNTA de Andalucia president Susana Diaz claims that education is ‘the most powerful tool to ensure social equity’.

She added that it is ‘the best investment we can make’ and promised to continue providing financial support to disadvantaged students.

The regional government provides funding to the public university, with more than 5,000 students passing courses each year.

“Today more than ever, college is a vital institution in the development of the social and economic model we want for our country,” Diaz said.
