Steps to be followed when you arrive in Valencia
First step: Arrival
If you are an Erasmus student coming to the Blasco Ibáñez Campus or the Tarongers Campus, you should present yourself at the International Relations Office, Avenida Menéndez Pelayo, 3, Ground Floor, 46010 Valencia, to register your arrival as soon as you get to Valencia. You will be provided with a Certificate of Arrival and useful information about the University.
We are sorry to say that crowded line-ups and waiting time are commonplace in the days prior to the start of the academic year. To avoid this as far as possible, you can make an appointment beforehand by selecting the date and time to come to the International Relations Office.
You will be able to apply for an appointment from the date we will communicate you. You will have to use this form, where you will enter your e-mail address (the one that your home university gave us) in the relevant box and click on the magnifying glass on the right to get your data. Your names are partially hidden for your security.
Choose the date carefully as you can apply only for one appointment.
Students without appointment will be attended by the International Relations Office in the order determined by the numbered ticket dispenser situated in the office hall. To take a ticket you must first select the INCOMING STUDENTS option. However, we cannot assure that you will be attended on that same day, as our service capacity is limited. We thus recommend that appointments be made beforehand.
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.
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 centre, 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 Bankia or any other bank or financial institution) for the amount of around 8 euros (administrative charges).
Hours of operation
Hours of operation at the International Relations Office, as well as at the secretarial offices of the different faculties or schools are from 9 to 14 from Monday to Friday. Academic / departmental coordinators have their own office hours for students. Hours of availability can be found at each coordinators’ respective department.
If you are a national of a non-EU country you may need a student visa in order to enter and stay in Spain, please check with the Spanish Embassy in the country where you are a permanent resident.
Find the closest Spanish Embassy or Consulate. Once you are here, we can help you with the study permit procedure in case you need one. You can find more information at this link.
End of attendance
If you are an Erasmus student coming to the Blasco Ibáñez Campus or to the Tarongers Campus, by the time you end your stay at the UV, just before your departure, you should pick up your certificate of attendance personally at the International Relations Office, Avenida Menéndez Pelayo, 3, Ground Floor 46010 Valencia.
