Steps to be followed when you arrive in Valencia

First step: Arrival
The UV International Office has planned a Reception Day in January to give you a warm welcome and provide you with general information about UV. 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.

Second step: Confirmation of your study contract
Your academic coordinator will help you deal with academic issues and prepare and/or confirm your study contract. Please bring an initial proposal signed by your academic coordinator at your university. Check the list of academic coordinators at the University of Valencia.

Third step: Enrolment
The school or faculty at your home university will have provided you with instructions to enrol in the subjects that you wish to study at the University of Valencia. This enrolment is usually done one or two weeks after classes have begun so that you are sure about which subjects to take, but you have the opportunity to attend all classes that you are interested in until you enrol. Remember that you are required to enrol for at least 50% of the credits in the same area and school or faculty in which you have been assigned by your university.

In some cases you may need to bring two passport photos (3x3 cm) and a photocopy of your passport or ID for your student card, which gives you access to all library services and discounts in some activities (sports, theatres, museums, etc.). You will also receive a username and password to access your email account, the virtual classroom and other online services. 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 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.
