In higher education, generic competencies are those common to most students that can be used in the activities of a sector or organization. The objective was to identify generic competencies in Peruvian university students. The study was a descriptive, non-experimental cross-sectional design. The sample consisted of 567 university students of both sexes from public and private universities in Peru. The instrument applied was the questionnaire of generic competencies of university students (CCGEU). The results showed that Peruvian university students have a sufficient level of generic competencies; they use generic competencies almost always or always in the development of their activities. Likewise, in the dimensions, systemic competencies have the highest value, followed by interpersonal and instrumental competencies. It is concluded that most Peruvian university students use generic competencies at a sufficient level; however, some students never or almost never use them, so it would be important for the Peruvian university institutions where the participants study to implement strategies to strengthen generic competencies.
