The University of Antwerp is unique in its form. It consists of three university institutions, the uniqueness arising from the fact that two of its three 'arms' have an entirely different history and background: the Universitair Centrum Antwerpen (RUCA) is state owned, whereas UFSIA (Universitaire Faculteiten Sint-Ignatius te Antwerpen) is a private university, founded by the Jesuit fathers. The third arm is the pluralistic Universitaire Instelling Antwerpen (UIA). Both UFSIA and RUCA were originally founded in 1852 and acquired university status in 1965.
