Radio CEU, radio with no borders
Radio CEU is the place the University has created to give you the chance to taste and experiment with communication over the airwaves. It’s more than just the place for Journalism or Audiovisual Communication students to do their practical training: all of our students can participate in Radio CEU’s programming. This enriching experience can take you beyond your studies and help you make real connections with people from other countries and cultures – and people who speak different languages too.
Eva Andreu, a Journalism student, is a now a seasoned veteran as one of the voices of Radio CEU. She has presented practically every programme across the schedule, from news bulletins, sports programmes, or thematic broadcasts, such as one on YouTube trends. For Eva, this experience has given her real self-confidence, as “it helps you to loosen up and move beyond that initial embarrassment you feel, because you know that what you’re saying is going out to many listeners at the same time...it also helps you to meet other students from different degrees and countries. These are people that you can share much more with than just the radio programme.”
If you’d like to be part of the action, join us at Radio CEU.

CEU Teatro: personal growth through drama
Drama encourages creativity, self-expression and personal development. These benefits are enhanced further by adding other arts such as dance, music or literature and then move on to another level when you share your passion for the performing arts with other students. At CEU Teatro, you will experience the art and magic of acting, you will learn new ways of expressing yourself and you will meet other students who feel the same way you do about drama.
Isidro Fillol, who’s studying for a Dual Degree in Audiovisual Communication and Journalism, says that he “joined to be able to meet people who had the same interest in drama”. His were quickly satisfied and then exceeded, as it has “also helped me to learn more about myself and to learn how to deal with constraints that a script poses for the performer. I’ve learnt how to project my voice, to communicate better and to feel free on the stage.”
If you like drama and you’d like to get involved on or behind the stage, we’d love to see you at CEU Teatro.

Orfeón y Camerata – more than just sound
Listening to music has a multitude of health benefits. It helps you to improve your performance in other areas, reduce stress and boost your state of mind. Playing an instrument or singing also lets you express yourself musically. The students who form part of the Orfeón y Camerata – the CEU Choir and Chamber Orchestra – get all these benefits and the opportunity to share their passion for music with students from other degrees, countries and cultures. This stimulating experience will enrich your time at the University and will provide you with an education beyond the merely academic.
Samuel Ríos Vigo is as passionate about animals as he is about music. He came to Valencia from Málaga to train to be a vet, but his love for music has also led him to participate for a second consecutive year in the rehearsals and performances of the Orfeón y Camerata. By forming part of the choir, Samuel has broadened his circle of friends, as “there are students from different countries and degrees, such as Dentistry and Pharmacy.” He also thinks that “this is a great to play music while at University. It’s really cool because every performance keeps you on your toes and makes you feel that music is a part of you.”
Music forms part of University celebrations and is present in all the major events. “We play at a lot of events, especially institutional ceremonies. We also meet weekly to prepare ourselves for each performance. There’s usually an event at the end of each term, so we get together every week to rehearse.”
If you’re passionate about music, if you love singing, or if you play an instrument, we have a place for you at the University’s Orfeón y Camerata.

CEU Photo, more than just taking pictures
Photography helps us to express ourselves. An image can portray a situation, a landscape or an object, but an image can also help you transmit a feeling, a state of mind or a reaction.
Now, in this world in which immediacy is everything, imagery and photography are more powerful than ever and people use them every day to communicate with the world. At CEU Photo, students share with each other their passion for photography, its ability to tell a story, to record history, and to bring out real creativity through the capture of moments in time. Being part of this could see you embark on new and unexpected projects, born out of seeing the world through different prisms in the company of students from across the world.
This is exactly the experience that Sandra has had. She dreams of directing a short film and of making a name for herself as a photographer. That’s why she’s studying Audiovisual Communication and meets up every week with fellow budding photographers at CEU Photo. Being a part of this club has led her to “start new photographic projects, because the lecturer who leads the group is always encouraging us to stretch ourselves. He proposes a central theme and then each of us has to think about what our view is on that and then to express that view through images.” Sandra has also made many friends through CEU Photo and has deepened her knowledge of photography while speaking other languages and learning about the cultures of other countries. “We learn to understand the art of photography by going to what we know and then thinking about what we want to say and how. And that’s fantastic.”
If you like photography and you’d like to share your passion for it with other students, we’d love to see you at CEU Photo.

MUN brings together 3500 students from 130 countries for simulation that has a real impact.
The very word “international” almost immediately brings to mind the United Nations. We see the organization on the TV and in the newspapers. Some people study it at university and others truly love it because it is the most important international organization in the world, bringing all countries together. And yet it always seems remote.
No longer. The Model United Nations Club (MUN) can change this for you, as you will both come into contact with those who study the organization and gain first-hand experience of how the United Nations works. As part of the MUN simulation, you will take on the role of representing a country on a specific UN committee, where a particular issue will be debated. You will be able to travel and meet students from other universities who are also interested in the United Nations.
Tomás Agustín Alassia is an Argentinian student who is fascinated by how international organizations work. He juggles studying Law and the Expert Certificate in International Law in the European Union with the CEU MUN sessions. He has just come back from what he calls “a great opportunity” – participating in the simulation of the United Nations in New York. It made a great impact on him “because we met students who feel the same curiosity we feel and we were able to learn more about the situations their countries are faced with. It was also very rewarding because all of the decisions taken will be sent to the heads of state of the countries involved and to the Secretary-General of the United Nations.”
If you would like to improve your skills in public speaking, negotiation, persuasion and foreign languages, and you’d also like to gain first-hand experiences of how the United Nations works, then come and have a truly unique experience with us.

Student clubs – a great place for personal and professional growth
The range of animal species in nature is immense. Some of them are considered to have special and unique qualities and so are often called “exotic animals”.
At the Zoological Medicine Club, you will learn a lot about exotic wild animals and work on projects aiming to conserve and care for them. And you will be able to enjoy the experience alongside fellow students who share your love of animals.
Pauline Di Natale, a Veterinary student from France, combines attendance at lectures and practical training with the activities at the Zoological Medicine Club. “By joining this Club, I’ve discovered a different side to veterinary medicine and new areas such as herpetology.” For Pauline, the experience has been “very enriching”, as she has been able to meet many more students and share with them her passion.
If you’d like explore your love for exotic animals, then the Zoological Medicine Club is the place for you.

The world of finance comes to CEU
The University’s stock market club, CEU Bolsa, is aimed at students who’d like to know more about the world of finance and investments. Wall Street has come to the University in the shape of our Bloomberg Room.
Alex Alegre, who is studying a Dual Degree in Business Management and Law, is a member of CEU Bolsa:
“The club helps me to gain a better idea of the kind of client I am going to be dealing with in the future. Commerce is what I’m really interested in, especially mergers and acquisitions and specialist concepts such as joint ventures – this is all really useful for me. Finance is something that everyone should know something about, whatever degree you’re studying.”
