The Bages University Foundation (FUB) was established in 1986 and began its academic activity in 1990 with the creation of the University School of Nursing. It is located in Manresa and currently consists of two different faculties: Healthcare Sciences and Social Sciences, which encompass university degrees in Nursing, Physiotherapy, Speech Therapy and Podiatry, and Business Administration and Management (ADE) and Early Childhood Education, respectively. It also has a professional campus with Vocational Training Courses covering Dental Prostheses, Early Childhood Education, Administration and Finance and International Trade. The signing of a federation agreement with the Balmes University Foundation on January 30, 2014, designated the FUB as the headquarters of the Manresa Campus of the University of Vic - Central University of Catalonia.
