    Great University but...

    Studying at the UPV is a great experience, the campus is amazing, services are cheap and of good quality and the studying experience is also great. But, there are a lot of things to improve. First, the different schools around the campus do not share the same rules or guild lines for evaluating, programs and so on. This creates some problems as some very-related degrees might not be sharing the same evaluation process, study programs or practices. Also, from my experience, some subject departments are quite bad, maybe because the teachers are not the best or because they are permanent and do not care about the real knowledge students get, instead they just show theory and expect you to solve the every-year exam.
    In general, is a 7/10, I’d recommend but be aware of these flaws

    Non-stop projects!

    Studying Audiovisual Communication in Gandía was overall a great decision. In terms of facilities and equipment, it is definitely one of the best schools in Spain, there’s a TV and a radio studio, tons of fancy cameras and lighting… Everything you’d wish for when studying film and media. Also, at the end of every semester, we’ll spend an entire month making an audiovisual project. For example, creating a radio programme from scratch, or working with a local non-profit to film an advertisement for them. Overall a great experience and would recommend it to anyone eager to start creating products instead of just learning the theory.

    Study in a tranquil environment

    There is a PhD program in Applied Linguistics. Shared program with UV. Things I love most about UPV is its environment and it’s campus. Professors are so respectful as well. The only thing I would like to be better is PhD office for candidates in applied linguistics building.

    Education's quality

    In my opinion, UPV is one of the best higher education center in Spain. I have had only good experiences with professors and their stuff. The university life is quite active despite of COVID situation.

    I highlight the enthusiasm and passion of the professors in each lesson

    I like that the lessons are fulfilled and with a flexible schedule. What I hate is the lack of some materials and machines in the labs. The uni should repair or put more vending machines in order to not make a queue in the cafeteria

    My experience in technical architecture

    I must admit that both the location of the school and the distribution of the facilities are quite good, but for an architecture school, it could have chosen better materials, since it is quite cold (and more now with the issue of ventilation by the pandemic). Of course, the race is tougher than I thought.

    Obviously, being in engineering, I did not expect it to be an easy degree to take, but I did not expect it to be so complex to achieve a course per year. What’s more, few students succeed. If it is true that the first course is quite passable, since it is more like a kind of introduction, but the step to second is quite intense. The change from one course to another is very noticeable, I feel that in the first they either do not give you the sufficient level or in the second they demand more than what they play with the base that they have given us.

    As for teachers … Honestly, there are few who, at least in my opinion, deserves the title of good teachers, since there are two or three who really arouse your passion for the career, those who make going to your subject is a real joy. With this, I do not mean that the rest of the teachers are horrible, but that some are not the best at explaining, others miss their classes and others demand a higher level in their exams than they have taught in class.

    All this has contributed to the fact that I have been studying this degree for more than four years and, honestly, I have not left it because it is something I would like to dedicate myself to in the future, but if you consider entering because the cut-off mark is low, think of something else. I think that if your vocation is not really this, there is no point in trying to study it because it is quite tough.

    Ah! And we must not forget that with this career you do not become an architect who defines the design of construction and how it is carried out, that is the function of a superior architect. The technical architect is the one who is in charge of supervising that the construction is being carried out correctly, but not the design since I have seen more than one case of students who entered this career by confusing it with superior architecture.

    Undertaking at the UPV

    Hello!! Almost a year and a half ago I was about to finish my degree, I only had to deliver the TFG and I realized that I had not taken advantage of everything that the UPV offered me. And it is that this university offers great help to all students who have an entrepreneurial spirit.

    As entrepreneurship is something that has always called me, I decided to sign up for a Challange promoted by Ideas, the UPV entrepreneurship program. I participated with a classmate and we carried out a project that we elaborated on a subject. Obviously, we did not win, since it was not really a project that we had developed in-depth to really carry it out, but that does not take away the experience that we had.

    The Challenge lasted about 3 days and you could go alone or with your team, to which new members could join. There, the teachers gave you the guidelines and tools necessary to develop your project in greater depth and finally be able to present it to the court. In addition, the top 3 teams were given a cash prize to help them carry out their project.

    This program brought me a little closer to Ideas, so I decided to set up a meeting with them and show them a project they had in mind. The project was accepted and I, along with two colleagues, began to enter the incubator of the UPV. There we have the advice of the ideas team and the support of a fairly advanced start-up. Both guided us to tell us how to approach the project and make it viable. Unfortunately, the project did not progress much further, but not because the UPV did not give us the necessary tools, it was due to the personal issues of the members of the group.

    With all this, I want to say that if you are going to study at the UPV and you have an entrepreneurial spirit, do not miss the opportunity to learn about the Ideas program, because it is a real pass. Even once you have graduated, you can count on their support.

    Life on the Vera campus

    This is not a review of any specific degree. It’s about what life is like on the Vera campus.

    The agora is the centre of the campus. In it, you will find a large part of the cafeterias/restaurants where you can have lunch, eat and even have a few beers with your classmates. In addition, there is also the pharmacy, bookstores, the bank, reprographics and the general library, although all schools have their own libraries and even reprographics.

    But it is that two minutes from the agora is the jewel in the crown of the campus, the student’s house. The student’s house is a building exclusively for students whose ground floor is mainly used for making meals, as it has vending machines and microwaves. It also has a computer room, leisure and restrooms with sofas and table football, a terrace, etc. That is, the student’s house is suitable both for eating, for disconnecting and for meeting your friends to do work. Also in that area is the swimming pool, the soccer field and the athletics and gym, which the truth is that it has very affordable prices for students.

    I have to admit that the Vera campus is quite large, but everything that I have mentioned above is quite close to each other, so the times that a teacher has been absent, as that area was close to my school, the truth is that always I found something to do. In addition to that, from time to time, races or small events are scheduled for designated dates.

    I believe that in order to enjoy university life, having a good campus is essential, and Vera’s from the UPV actually met all my expectations.

    Food science and technology at the UPV

    A couple of years ago I graduated as a food technologist. I have to admit that taking it at this university generates a certain prestige, at least in the Valencia Community, since companies rely a lot on the education given at the UPV.

    Regarding the degree, although the first year is somewhat heavy because the subjects are mostly fundamentals, as the semesters pass you begin to see the subjects more focused on areas that may attract you, such as food quality or chemical or physical analysis among others. In addition, all the subjects have a practical part, either in laboratories or in seminars, which makes it easier to apply what has been learned and to know the operation of the different types of laboratories.

    It is true that this degree does not have a specific specialization in one area, but like so many others, if there really is a specific part of food technology that calls you more, it is enough to take a master’s degree or course focused on it since the base main you get it in the degree.

    It must be taken into account that the UPV requires at least a B2 level in a foreign language to obtain the title, therefore, this career in its program has a subject in the last year that allows you to validate your knowledge in B2 English and facilitate obtaining the degree if you do not have an external certification that accredits it.

    To finish, I want to say that the Vera campus, where the degree is taught, is very well equipped, since there are various places to eat, gym, tennis court, swimming pool, bookstore, pharmacy, bank, etc., in addition to many green spaces.

    Take a master's degree in pandemic

    In the 2020-2021 academic year, I took the university master’s degree in quality management and food safety. I must say that this master was taught mainly online, since we only went to the university for exams and some laboratory practice. In this sense, I can say that the UPV has sufficient means to face another similar situation, so the pandemic practically did not alter the study plan.

    Focusing on the master, something that I did not like very much is that there are many subjects, since these are worth few credits. This forces you to take quite a few subjects, making you take some that don’t interest you and making others shorter in which, from my point of view, it would be necessary to delve more deeply, such as those dedicated to quality management systems and food safety volunteers. In any case, the basic subjects of the master’s degree are studied in-depth, such as those for the HACCP system, which is also very enjoyable thanks to the teachers who teach it.

    I would like to emphasize that this master’s degree has an internship subject, which can be done in companies or focused on research, as it could be in the UPV laboratories. In addition, it has a series of credits to carry out extracurricular internships, so this master’s degree really helps you get closer to the world of work, making it possible to get a job in the company where you do the internship.
