Welcome to a university with students from more than 90 countries
Our teams of advisors are here to help you with any queries you may have, whether you are a prospective student, a family member or a member of staff at a school. They can advise you about university study and provide a range of resources and initiatives which will be of great use to you as you decide your future.
Use our Degree Advisor app and get the information you need about the right degree for you, the best industries to work in, and the personal and professional skills which employers value the most.
If you’re still one or two years away from university, then you could try out our Pre-University Campus initiative. You could spend three days at the University, attending talks and taking part in workshops covering a range of disciplines. The aim is for you to be aware of all of the options available to you, as the university stage of your life draws nearer.
The target audience are those in their final year of compulsory secondary education or their first year of pre-university studies or vocational training (typically 15-17 year-olds). 27th, 28th and 29th June.
The CEU Cardenal Herrera University holds open days for prospective students and their families at several times throughout the year, with both in-person and online events. We want students and their family members to be able to see and experience our facilities at first hand and to meet our lecturers and current students.
Speak to our personal advisors and they can help you set up a personal interview on the day that suits you best. This could be a video call, or you could come in and combine the interview with an in-person tour of the campus.
The University’s advisors can travel to schools (or set up an online event if this is preferable) to give a presentation about the University, and talk about requirements for applications, the admissions process, the degrees available, possible credit recognition for those undertaking vocational training, the facilities, the University services, etc. A complete briefing session can be provided which is tailored to the specific needs of each school or training centre. In addition, our advisors work with lecturers at the University to organize a wide range of activities throughout the year, which aim to provide students with insights into certain programmes (such as in the health sciences, law, marketing, communication, design, etc.) We can, of course, also organize activities with parents’ associations at the schools.
In the case of schools from outside Spain, our team can provide its services in different languages, adapting the activities as far as is possible to the needs and schedule of the school concerned.
It’s very important for students to become familiar with the place where they will study their degree. For this reason, schools can request a visit to the University’s facilities throughout the year and the tour can be customised to the specific needs of each school.
At the University, we undertake a wide range of innovative educational projects, with which we seek to encourage values and activities such as solidarity, social service, entrepreneurship, and research. Schools and training centres of all types take part in these initiatives which seek to give young people a taste of university life.
This initiative, which brings the University and schools together, seeks to provide a service to society through innovation. The fifth edition of the UNI2 project encourages schools to research how to prevent addiction to technology and improve interpersonal relationships.
