The University of Oviedo (Universidad de Oviedo) is a public university in Asturias in Spain. It is the only university in that region. The dynamic university has three campuses and research centres, which are based in Oviedo, Gijón, as well as Mieres. The school is known for its undergraduate and postgraduate courses which are offered in a variety of fields. The university is home to a School of Law, Teaching and Eduation, Chemistry, Polytechnic School of Mieres, Jovellanos Faculty of Commerce, Tourism and Social Sciences, Gijón Polytechnic School of Engineering, Philosophy and Letters, Economy and Business, Teaching and Geology, Mining Engineering, Biology, Medicine and Health Sciences, Merchant Marine, School of Computer Engineering, Sciences and Psychology. Prospective students can expect to receive an outstanding education through lectures held by highly qualified professionals who are eager to pass on their knowledge and insights in their chosen field of expertise. Students can choose from courses in Experimental Sciences, Health Sciences, Engineering, Social Sciences and Law, as well as Humanities. Graduates of the school are all-rounders and well-equipped with the necessary skills and tools to start their global careers. They are likely to find employment within a short period of time after graduating. The campus offers the perfect learning environment- it is home to different classrooms with great capacity. The school has state-of-the-art facilities, including different laboratories, in order to best prepare its students for future careers. The school places special value on being an international institution and therefore welcomes applications from international students. Students can take part in work placements in Spain or at one of the university’s partners abroad. Study exchange programmes, such as ERASMUS, are also part of studying at Universidad de Oviedo. The employability of graduates is very high, proven by many of its notable alumni and the school’s large alumni network.

About 4 hours per week per subject. Most teachers are nice and open to explaining things to you as many times as you need, and also in helping you with the assignments they ask for during their office hours, so you can be sure to hand in exactly what they want. This campus receives many international students, and local students are very friendly, so don’t be shy and talk to them!
It is difficult to sumarize 6 years in a paragraph. The University is quite large for a small region like Asturias, which makes it a good place to study abroad. Its facilities are alright; they have (depending on the campus) big classrooms and good laboratories. There are several aspects I would recommend to consider if you are studying engineering, as I did, in the University of Oviedo:
-The professors, especially the younger ones, are usually motivated and will make your learning process easier. And even with the not so motivated ones, you can go to their office anytime and they will help you if they can.
-I was skeptical about the knowledge acquired during the years, but it turns out it is more than alright. The effort done by the professors usually pays off.
-The University life and campuses are nice places and you will feel very comfortable with your mates.
-The University itself does not have a lot of money, and the money they have is spent sometimes absurdly. Every now and again they invest in making the campuses “more beautiful” instead of investing in research.
-You might find some old-school professor (so-called dinosaurs) that makes you learn things that you do not find useful in a way that makes it more difficult.
-Most of the courses are evaluated “the Spanish way”: the exam has a huge percentage of the mark and you need to pass it to pass the subject. Your everyday work has very little impact in the mark.
As for the degree, I found the master’s way more useful. During my last year of masters we were 9 in the classroom, and the University also provided an internship. It was, by far, the year I learnt the most – a really positive experience that helped me a lot in my professional career.
I have been an industrial engineering student in this university for 7 years. I have been stuck with the final studies project for 3 years because of the lack of support or formation to do it. They just do not want you to finish your degree. They just want you to pay year by year, increasing the amount you pay to be able to defend a thesis you will not be able to finish without help.
La Universidad de Oviedo fue una gran experiencia para mí, la mayoría de las carreras de pueden estudiar allí, las facultades están muy buen situadas en 3 zonas de la ciudad que son El Cristo, Llamaquique y El Milán, para mí los profesores eran en un porcentaje del 80% muy buenos, siempre hay alguno que no gusta, para mí es una buena universidad
Considero que la formación debería estar basada en conceptos más útiles al llegara al mundo laboral. Durante mi carrera se abordaron muchos temas que difícilmente llegaremos a utilizar ninguno de los presentes en el aula, sin embargo no se trataron temas básicos. Demasiado contenido teórico y muy pocos casos que nos encontramos en nuestras carreras profesionales.
You won’t find such close teachers and good environment anywhere else.
But that is not all, you will also be offered opportunities to travel all around the world to complete your studies and at the end of your studies you will have a wide range of business knocking on your door wanting to join them.
Your classmates will become friends for life and you will share with them meetings, parties and trips.
We are waiting for you, you are really welcome here!
