Yes, we are international and proud of it. We have more than 2500 international students from more than 100 countries, such as Germany, France, Sweden, Taiwan, Mexico and the United States. Many of them choose us for all their university studies. They come here for the truly global education we can provide to them. They come here because they do not see borders limiting their future. They come here – and they make us one of the most international universities in Europe. We are not just saying that either: 35% of our students are international.
We have some unique learning facilities, with a focus on practical training. These facilities include our own veterinary hospital, dental clinic, advanced simulation suites, an area for entrepreneurship, and innovative spaces such as The Hub and the workshop at our architecture, design and engineering school, ESET.
On that day, 19th June 1999, 29 ministers of education from EU countries agreed to create a new dimension for university education in Europe: the European Higher Education Area.
All the major academic decisions taken from that point on by European universities have been consistent with the principles of the Bologna Declaration.
“The Bologna Declaration laid the foundations for the creation of the European Higher Education Area on the basis of certain principles (quality, mobility, diversity and competitiveness). Two of its strategic objectives are to increase employment in the European Union and to make the European higher education system attractive to students and lecturers from other parts of the world.”
The Bologna Declaration saw a commitment from the signatories to move towards the higher education model used in English-speaking countries, a two-cycle model.
This decision was taken to facilitate mobility for students and workers between EU countries. By organizing higher education systems in the same way:
All Spanish universities have adopted this model as a consequence of the Bologna Declaration.
In other words, “postgraduate programmes” are not a mere add-on to a standard degree, but rather a stage in which graduates can specialize and gain the skills that European employers require.
If you want to apply to become a civil servant, a master’s degree will give you an advantage.
If you want to become more skilled in your field, in order to move onto more specialized positions, then a master’s degree is the logical step to take.
If you are thinking about a career in teaching or research, remember that holding a master’s degree is the key to being accepted onto doctoral programmes.
In Spain, master's degrees are known as másteres universitarios, and they are programmes which have been verified and certified by the Spanish government’s quality assurance agency for higher education, ANECA.
We have created título propio programmes in order to address skills gaps in the job market, although these programmes have not been verified by ANECA.
Other postgraduate programmes and certificates, known as títulos propios and cursos de capacitación, can also be taken into account in civil service selection processes.
The University only offers programmes when it knows that they make our students and graduates more employable.
Our cursos de capacitación enable students to certify certain skills, allowing them, for example, to teach the Valencian language in schools.
Details regarding student fees can be found on the programme-specific section of the website.
This is paid upon admission to the university.
This is paid when the registration/enrolment period opens.
These are charged in monthly instalments to the bank account specified by the student.
Let’s use our Master’s Degree in Sports Physiotherapy as an example.
The annual fees amount to 8600 euros and there are three types of fees.
The first payment is the place reservation fee, amounting to 1700 euros.
The second payment is the registration fee. This amounts to 900 euros.
The tuition fees amount to 6000 euros, split into 8 monthly payments (750 euros each month).
