Being what you do is choosing your future. It is to surround yourself with others who, like you, know what they want, but also how they want to achieve it. So simple. Welcome to the best stage of your life. Welcome to CEU Valencia.

If you have already decided that our University is the perfect match for you, congratulations!

If you need assistance, you can reach out to us at any moment by sending us an e-mail to admission.en@uchceu.es

But before taking any step forward, please go through these three items:

  • Are you familiar with the special conditions for admission in Medicine/Medicina? If you wish to study our Spanish-taught degree in Medicina, please visit this link for further information. If Medicine is the degree for you (this is, our bilingual degree): it is highly important that you pay special attention to this information!
  • Are you hesitant about the academic documentation you need to apply? Check out the documentation required depending on your previous studies.

1. Admission form

To start the admission process, you need to complete an online form, indicating the following information:

  • Your personal information, so we can get in touch with you
  • The degree you wish to study at CEU Valencia
  • If you are applying as a first-year or a transfer student (in this case, you need to know that we don’t accept applications from transfer candidates in some degrees)

As you fill in the application form, you will have the opportunity to attach and upload the documentation we need to verify your eligibility regarding our academic requirements. We recommend that you only upload the requested documents. Please make sure that all the documents needed have been uploaded to the platform at least 5 days before your admission interview.

Which documents do you need to send us if you are a first-year student?

  • Scanned copy of ID card or passport
  • Scanned copies of all High School transcript of records
  • Scanned High School final diploma, if you already have it
  • Photo (ID format)
  • Cover letter

Which documents do you need to send us if you are a transfer student?

  • Scanned Transcript of Records
  • Photo (ID format)

Once the admission form has been filled in, you will receive an e-mail with the instructions you need to follow.

You can access your intranet by clicking here.

In this intranet you will find relevant information concerning your application and its current status. You can also modify your personal details, upload new documents, change your interview appointment or download your admission letter once you have been accepted.

If you haven’t received the username and password needed to access your intranet, please go through the information you have entered once again or contact us at admission.en@uchceu.es

3. Personal Interview

Once you have completed the admission form, you will be able to choose a date and time for a personal interview. This interview, together with your academic records and the result of the language test will determine your eligibility as a future student of CEU Valencia.

The admission interview, which will be carried out by a member of the International Relations Office, can be done on site or via Skype.

Your application will then be thoroughly evaluated by our International Admissions Commission and 24 hours after your interview and/or language test you will receive the result by e-mail.

If you are applying for a place in our bilingual degree in Medicine or the bilingual degree in Médecine Vétérinaire (French/Spanish), you won’t be able to freely choose a date and time for your personal interview. In these cases, it will be a member of the Faculty concerned who will activate the option.

4. Language level test

We offer a wide range of degrees in different languages, some of them bilingual. Make sure to visit our website and check the teaching language(s) of the degree you are interested in!

If you wish to study a degree where the first year is taught in a language different to your native tongue, you will be asked to send us a copy of an official language certificate or take the language level test that you will find in your intranet.

5. Application Status

Once your application has been evaluated, we will get in touch with you to inform you that:

  • You have been selected and there is a place available for you. In this case you will receive an admission letter including the instructions for the pre-enrollment.
  • You are on a waiting list for a place. As soon as there is a place available, you will be informed by e-mail.
  • You have not been selected.

Successful candidates will be asked to settle the amount corresponding to the pre-enrollment, which will be indicated in the admission letter.

6. Pre-enrollment and registration

Once you have been admitted, you will be able to access your future student intranet and print the admission letter.

Be careful! If you don't settle the payment before the due date, your application will be dismissed.

A complete range of services at your disposal

  • Accommodation services: We can help you find your future accommodation, by putting you in contact with our partners: rooms in dorms, apartments to share or even small studios, both in Valencia and around our campus… there is an option for every budget!
  • Mobile phone: You will be provided with a Spanish sim card upon arrival, which will allow you to call and to surf the internet for your first two months here. You can apply for the sim card through the Hospitality Application, thereby indicating the date on which you want it to be activated. It should be noted that, to be able to use this SIM card, it is necessary that your phone is SIM lock free.
  • Opening a bank account in Spain: You are offered the possibility to open a free bank account at Santander bank, which is the biggest bank in Spain and has an office located on our campus.

You can apply for the bank account via the Hospitality Application and go directly to the office to sign the contract on the selected date.
  • Managing the academic documentation: To be enrolled in a Spanish university, international students must obtain a document that proves they have successfully completed their secondary education. We are aware that administrative procedures in a country other than yours can be complicated, so we will indicate what documentation you need to provide, we will make the request and pay the corresponding fees.
  • Managing the residence documents: We will help you to organize the documentation you will need to legalize your stay in Spain. The NIE (also known as “Número de Identificación de Extranjeros”) and TIE, identification documents for foreigners that reside in Spain. Without this documentation, you will not be able to arrange all of your activities during your stay in Spain: it is needed to close a contract for your WIFI, to pay for your water- and electricity bills, and is also often required to make certain purchases. As the procedure can take a lot of time and effort, we will help you to collect your documents and will make an appointment for you at the police station.

You also have the possibility to attend a Spanish course during the summer period, organized at various levels to enable each student to start at their own pace. Additionally, you are able to participate in Spanish courses throughout the year.
  • Transportation: We will provide you with a Móbilis card that enables you to use bus, metro and tram during your first days in Valencia.
  • Optional medical insurance: You will be given the option to choose for a private insurance with SIGNA, which offers comprehensive health coverage in Spain, for the duration of 1 year. The cost of this assurance is € 400 for a period of 12 months. You can request this health insurance via the Hospitality Application.
