The 85 projects that the University of Las Tunas has are an expression of the work that researchers, students and professors develop in order to turn the house of high studies into an important local management center.
Places for university studies in this province were granted on Monday to 1,197 graduates of Pre-university, applicants of the Order 18 of the Ministry of the Armed Revolutionary Forces, the Female Military Service and the School of Sports Initiation (EIDE in Spanish), who passed the entrance exams in the first summons.
Teaching coverage in this province is 96 percent, well above the national average. The remaining four percent is covered by other alternatives such as hired teachers and university students in the "Educating for Love" task, according to statements by Nilser Piñeda Cruz, provincial director of that sector.
The Dr. Zoilo Marinello University of Medical Sciences (UCM) will celebrate this year its tenth graduation as a house of high studies. However, for three and a half decades, the classrooms of the former Faculty of Medical Sciences have seen more than 18,000 students graduate in Las Tunas.
