Being a small university most of the students we know each other and we can help each other. In the facilities, although there are not many, the laboratories and practice areas are quite new, and we highlight the dissection area for people who enter any health care career.
I really like the University because there are many parties and I have met many people that now is very important for me. It would repeat a thousand times more. I also like because the schedules are very good since I have class in the morning or in the afternoon and I can do things of mine.
The Miguel Hernández University is divided into four university campuses located in the province of Alicante. The Campus of San Juan is dedicated to the sanitary branch having careers as medicine, pharmacy, physiotherapy, podology or occupational therapy. From the opinion and point of view of a second-year pharmacist, I can say that the UMH of San Juan is one of the best universities in the field of health promoting development and research and ensuring optimal professional training through congresses, workshops, and the delivery of classes through the best qualified teachers.
I am a medical student, so I am in San Juan Campus. In my opinion, UMH is a great university for developing your career. I like, mainly, the web site because it is very easy to use and, also, I like that most of the teachers have a good reputation. But, I dislike that sometimes there isn’t organization.
