On the front page of the day TODAY November 4, 1968, opening day of the first university in the region, the Faculty of Badajoz part of the University of Seville, appeared in the style of the period, the following grandiloquent : “Extremadura has not known during the long years of peace of Franco, most historical day than today. The university for which he fought so desperately the present generation opens its doors for the redemptive instrument in the region and trigger leading to material and cultural promotion. ”

In 1971 the Council of Ministers approved the establishment of the College of Arts of Cáceres, attached to the University of Salamanca. The granting of this college was not without impediments from both the Ministry and by the University of Salamanca, which resisted its dismemberment, and only thanks to the perseverance of local and provincial authorities, was able to overcome all obstacles that occurred during the process. On October 16, 1971, at the National High School Institute “The Brocense” took place the opening ceremony of the College and the blessing of the building “Valhondo Calaff”, based at University College.

Other secondary schools ( as the Normal Schools of Education of Cáceres and Badajoz ) were incorporated into the University in 1972 as University Schools of Primary Teacher, following the entry into force of Decree arising from the passage of the Education Act 1970. Badajoz School was integrated into the University of Sevilla and Cáceres in Salamanca. The same happened with the Intermediate Technical School of Agricultural Engineering of Badajoz, also created in 1968, and that would be renamed College of Agricultural Engineering in 1972.

Cáceres centers were affiliated to the University of Salamanca and Badajoz, to Seville.
