Steps to be followed when you arrive in Valencia

First step: Arrival

The UV International Office has planned a Reception Day  to give you a warm welcome and provide you with general information about UV and about daily life in Spain. At the beginning of the session, you will be given your Certificate of Arrival, a temporary student card and an information pack. Please note: the date of arrival on the Certificate will be the date of the Reception Day.

 

Faculty Meetings

A few Faculties organise Faculty meetings for their incoming exchange students (some sessions are mandatory). In this sessions students will be informed about how to complete the enrolment procedure.

 

Second step: Confirm your Learning Agreement

 

The Exchange Coordinator for your field of studies will assist you with academic issues and the confirmation of your Learning Agreement. Remember that you must bring an initial proposal, signed by the academic coordinator from your home university.

Here you will find a list of the UV academic / departmental coordinators.

Find out your academic coordinator's office hours by clicking here.

Third step: Enrolling

At your home university or faculty, you will have been given instructions regarding the procedure for enrolling in the courses that you decide to take at the University of Valencia. Enrolling usually takes place one or two weeks after the beginning of classes so that students can be sure of the courses they wish to take. However, you are free to attend all the classes you wish until you enrol. Remember that it is compulsory that students enrol for at least 50% of their credits in the same field of study and in the faculty to which you have been nominated by your home university.

 

In some cases, you will have to take along two passport-sized pictures (3x3 cm) and a photocopy of your passport or identity card so that your student card can be generated. This card will entitle you to full library services and discounts (sports, theatres, museums, etc.). You will also receive a username and password for your UV online student account with which you will be able to access online services and your personal email account. You will also be given a bill (to be paid at a bank or financial institution) for the amount of around 8 euros (administrative fee).
