International Student Congress Logotipo Campus Life

The International Congress of Students (CIE) of the CEU Cardenal Herrera University aims to encourage interest in the research field among the students of the University. Moreover, it is a transversal activity, in which all students of the University, regardless of their field of study, have an opportunity to participate.

The CIE was launched in 2003, so it has a history of over 15 years and is one of the firm commitments of the Vice Chancellor's Office for Students and University Life, due to its value to our students. Since its first edition, it designed to recreate the ambience and protocol of a professional scientific conference, where researchers present the progress of their work to the scientific community. The CIE replicates all the steps that occur in the professional and research reality, so that students go through the whole research experience: from the observation of a real phenomenon or posing a hypothesis that needs to be verified, to the design of the research, the empirical work, the achievement of results and conclusions and the presentation and defense of the research.

If you are a university or pre-university student, the International Congress of Students (CIE) is an experience you cannot miss, for several reasons:

  • You will experience a unique university experience, which is outside of the day-to-day classes and revolves around research.
  • You will discover the world of research, within and beyond CEU UCH. 
  • You will be trained in useful research skills which you will be able put into practice later in your career.

The International Student Congress takes place in two University buildings on the Alfara del Patriarca Campus.

The Luis Campos Górriz Building has a total of 42 lecture rooms, in a range of formats and furniture layouts, making up 3700 m2 with a maximum capacity of 2636 students. All the lecture rooms are equipped with a video projector, overhead projector, data network connections, TV signal sockets, microphones and speakers. Large windows provide ample natural light. They are ventilated both naturally and mechanically – in the latter case the air conditioning system can be adjusted within the room. As well as these standard lecture rooms, there are also other rooms in which interactive teaching or workshops can take place, with electrical cabling, data network connections and PCs and Macs.

The Faculty of Health Sciences Building provides 19,900 m2 of space, over three floors. It is completely wheelchair accessible and it has all the clinical and practical facilities, teaching and research laboratories and departments which are needed to ensure students receive the appropriate personal and professional training. The building’s excellent teaching facilities include the Aula Magna, or Main Lecture Hall, which can accommodate 200 attendees, along with 16 90-seat lecture rooms, 30 teaching and research laboratories, an advanced simulation centre, electromechanics and biomechanics rooms, and newly extended clinical and preclinical rooms for Dentistry students. The new building also boasts areas aimed at improving student integration and networking, with group study rooms, tutorial rooms, and rest areas, all equipped with the latest technology. This new CEU building has also an energy rating of ‘A’.
