Presentation 

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


Second step: Visit your academic coordinator
The academic coordinator for your field of studies will assist you with academic issues.

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).


End of attendance

On the day on which your exchange period finishes at UV, you should apply for your online Certificate of Attendance, which will contain the dates of your arrival and of the end of your exchange period. To see step by step how to apply for it and, later on, download it, please check this guide.

Please take into account that the date indicating the end of your exchange period at UV will be the date on which you apply for the Certificate of Attendance.

Tips for students coming from a very different culture

  • If you need advice or help, especially if it is urgent, we strongly recommend you to just personally go to the offices and explain your situation, without appointment.
  • Almost all faculties assign UV student mentors/buddies to each exchange student. Their task is to help you in all practical matters (for instance, to find the right courses). Therefore, if you are contacted by your mentor, you should reply to him/her and keep in touch with him/her until you have finished your exchange period, as the mentors are a source of great help!
