Autonomous University of Yucatan (UADY), México

The Autonomous University of Yucatan, or UADY, is an autonomous public university in the state of Yucatán, Mexico, with its central campuses located in the state capital of Mérida. It is the largest tertiary educational institution (Spanish: higher education) in the state, offering some 41 different courses at the undergraduate or Bachelor's degree (bachelor's degree) level, and 26 postgraduate Master's degrees (masters). The institution was established in 1922 by then governor Felipe Carrillo Puerto as the National University of the Southeast, but its lineage may be traced back to a Spanish Empire royal decree promulgated in 1611, that allowed for the creation of the Colegio de San Francisco Javier in Mérida .
