The best thing about UEV is how international it is! You meet people from everywhere. I was attending another university before transferring there and that was the best decision I’ve ever made. The professors are always willing to help us better our understanding – they provide tutorial sessions, some courses are quite challenging and no matter how much I may complain, it pushes me to improve. I’ve discovered so much about myself in terms of academics. That’s not just it. When I walk into the building I feel safe and welcoming, the people are always so nice. For annoying who is outgoing and extroverted going there would probably be one the best thing, you’ve ever done.View more
The program would be more international and practical, there are some goods teachers but there are others that were very rude. The accommodations are poor, so the university life is boring. Although, I recommend it.View more
Pros: facilitates, location, use of technology, various clubs, the course itself is well structured.
Cons: quite expensive, not so sure about some of the teaching staff (most professors are great but there are some exceptions), sometimes can feel disorganized.View more
I had a nice experience at this university, I learned a lot from all the mixture of cultures that I was able to get to know, thanks to having shared a classroom with classmates and friends of different nationalities. Also, the teachers were excellent guides in the subjects I took there and they always answered all my questions.
On the other hand, the university is big, it has many spaces to study, the library is well stocked and the gym is incredible. In addition, it has a beautiful lake that beautifies the view.
I would honestly live this incredible experience again.
I consider that the European University good as a private university since it helps you to get business contacts once you finish your degree. I am currently in my third year. I feel that I have learned a lot about the labour market, although obviously, it is very different to be in it than just seeing it at university. I also think that the student support services should improve a lot at this university since it is a very expensive university and prices should be justified by helping students.View more
The European University of Madrid is considered one of the most exclusive private Universities in Madrid in terms of Infrastructure, prices and Academic Offer. UEM definitely offers a wide variety of services and benefits for students that are quite interesting. However, the cost that this University has made it sometimes not very accessible and its level of demand sometimes leaves a little to be desired, but the teaching methodology is interesting, emphasizing that other social skills are worked on. Also note that due to the high number of Erasmus students within the University, it makes an attractive place to generate a Networking of Students from all over Europe and the world… I also know that there are very good programs and an interesting offer in Masters and others specializations in all types of degrees. I believe that the greatest advantage is the cultural diversity and the people that we can find for future projects in our personal, academic and professional lives. That makes it a good investment to study and get a good NETWORK. I believe that there are very good professors at the university with a very outstanding career path and that at the administrative level, at least since 2019, which was my stay as an exchange student, it left a little to be desired in terms of student service and complaint resolution and complaints.View more
I loved everything, the methodology in my opinion was something new, a unique experience, the teaching was different from my country of origin. And with the students. Being from different countries we do not get to acculturate with different people, thoughts, criteria, exchange culture and knowledge, it is favorable.
The double degree should have the option of being online, or at a distance, electives for those who cannot travel for work (I missed classes, subjects, I did not get to take the final exam, because I had to travel outside of Madrid, at work I did not They gave permission, there should be a way to develop it as a question evaluator with a short time to answer….. at least, in order to have other alternatives, without having a fixed schedule that gives a deadline of days to enter with a a certain time, not as they raised an example that must be entered at 11 am and ends in 40 minutes….. they said there was flexibility for the student to enter at night or in the afternoon or day or early in the morning…. .but from the time you enter, time will run and thus be able to take the exam) thank you.
I would have loved to have had a degree in Accounting….
Half of the teachers don’t care about you and your learning! If you have questions they say that you have to read a “pdf” and that’s everything. You have to buy all the materials when in public universities they loan them to you.View more
First of all, UEM is a private university which has created quite a bit of prestige in recent years. It is a fairly complete university on a general level and has two campuses in the city of Madrid. One campus in Alcobendas (north of the city, on the outskirts) and another in Villaviciosa de Odon (east of the city, on the outskirts). I am currently studying at the Villaviciosa de Odon campus. It should be noted that no campus is located in the centre of the city.
Now, I will tell you my personal and academic opinion in the most honest way possible so that you can see all the pros and cons that you could have when making decisions about whether or not you want to study in it.
The campus, facilities and university life:
UEM is categorized as one of the most multicultural and international universities in the city of Madrid and that creates a pleasant and interesting atmosphere on campus as you meet students from all over the world.
The campus is quite complete since it has all kinds of sports facilities such as soccer, paddle tennis, tennis, basketball, gym, etc. And also if you are a new student and want to stay in the university facilities, you can do so in the residences that are available inside from the same campus, which I feel is a good option for the first year of university as an adaptation process.
The classrooms are very well prepared, have very good facilities and state-of-the-art technology.
The teachers are very well prepared and know how to use and manage all the facilities of the classrooms in order to get the most out of it when teaching classes, whether online or face-to-face.
However, it must be taken into account that if you do not want to live on campus or its surroundings (the town of Villaviciosa de Odon) and your decision is to live in the heart of Madrid, that will require a small sacrifice since it will take between 40- 60 min to the university by public transport. (It would be another case if you have or have a car or motorcycle) since the university has free parking for students within it.
Now let’s talk a little about the administrative level and the costs;
It is true that because it is a private university, the costs are much higher than usual compared to a public university, which in my personal opinion feels that it is overvalued a little regardless of the facilities since in the end we all go with the same purpose. what it means to study and be able to have a university degree in the future…
At the level of internal administrative management of the university, I feel that a bit of organization is needed since I have come across various inconveniences which in my opinion have been easy to solve and I notice that the staff is a bit “unprofessional” or lacks knowledge and I feel that this is a key point when managing an institution of such magnitude and prestige.
Finally, since I have entered the UEM by validation for previous studies carried out in my country of origin in the degree: business administration and management, it has caused this journey to have become a bit tedious or complicated with my studies, Since they wouldn’t let me enrol in all the subjects I wanted for the simple fact that they weren’t available in the semester I was studying and I wanted to enrol in those subjects, I feel that it is a bit inappropriate given how big and prestigious the university is. This has resulted in me graduating in more time than I had planned… there were semesters in which I could only enrol 2-3 subjects and another 5-6, so that is part of the lack of professionalism at the administrative level in which I previously focused. As I also experienced inconveniences with my registration due to errors or misunderstandings made by them…
This does not mean that it can happen to everyone, but I feel that some improvements are needed on the internal side of both this university and many in Madrid… and I also feel that a bit of honesty is needed when making offers or promotions so that students want to study in them… “talk less, do more”
In the end, it is true that it is up to each person to decide where they want to study based on their needs and desires, and that must always be respected!
I hope my opinion will be useful to future students!
All the best!
