General Instructions

Please read the following general instructions before filling in your List of Subjects!

Most courses at the University of Valencia (UV) are assigned an ECTS value of 6 credits.  In principle students need to take up to 30 credits per semester. This means usually 5-6 courses per semester. But we strongly advise exchange students to sign up for a minimum of 18 credits per semester when formulating their study programme at the UV.

Please note that International Exchange students have to select 50% of courses in the field of study that they have been nominated for. In case they would also like to attend courses outside their nominated field of study, it is only possible on the condition that there are available places. However, permission to participate in courses from other fields of study cannot be guaranteed before the arrival.
