Uralikan Yliopisto (Engl. University of Uralica, Russ. Университет Уралики) is Uralica's first university, located in the outskirts of Syktyvkar, the capital of Uralica. Although it only has twenty thousand seats, it is still considered a top educational facility, particularly for such a young nation. There are 115 different course types offered by 60 departments divided into 8 faculties and one seminary. It is known for its wide range of programs and courses. It has a total of 120000 (as of 25 March 2010) seats available in several campuses, although the Main Campus is the largest and most diverse campus in terms of the courses it offers.

Uralicans take their education so seriously that when this school opened, it was decided to run the school year-round, and it runs on a trimester system. The Fall trimester goes from the beginning of September to the beginning of December with exams until the week before Christmas. The Spring trimester goes from the beginning of January to the beginning of April, with exams until the second-last Friday in April. Finally, the Summer Trimester runs from the first week of May until the first week of August, with exams until the second-last Friday of August. Most students will take four courses per trimester, however up to six is legal, however "restricted to the absolute most hardcore keeners in Uralica," according to university president Dr. Ovdey Shlomov.
