This paper presents a study about the most relevant formative spaces in a university that claims to have a distinctive value-based seal. Aspects related to the formative role and if this should go beyond technical matters by giving a more humanistic formation. For this purpose, an interpretative qualitative study was carried out, identifying the ideological dilemmas of the students' focal groups taking part in this research. Results allowed the identification of five dilemmas in this transcendent formation and five formative spaces, to solve future professional ethical dilemmas. It is concluded that the university exerts a formative role of value-based issues guiding the critical analysis that society will demand from its future professionals.
