The Metropolitan University of Educational Sciences (Spanish: Universidad Metropolitana de Ciencias de la Educación) is a university specialized in Pedagogy and located in the commune of Ñuñoa, Santiago, Chile.


The university was created in 1889 as the Instituto Pedagógico de la Universidad de Chile. In 1981 the military government of General Pinochet separated it from the University of Chile and transformed it into the Academia superior de Ciencias pedagógicas de Santiago. Later in 1985, under the control the new university law it was transformed into the Universidad Metropolitana de Ciencias de la Educación. In 2001, the university was going to reintegrate with the University of Chile under a proposal of the Minister of Education Mariana Aylwin but this idea was defeated by the current rector Raúl Navarro. Today, the university is a hundred-year-old center of higher learning, the country's leading institute of applied pedagogical and teaching research.
