    I think this university is a model in Spain regarding the support that gives to student associations through their program Generación Espontánea.

    I like most of it, the campus is amazing, they have very cool technological researchers and ongoing investigations, cafeterias are very nice and affordable, they have internal grants and helps for the students with economical difficulties and as I mention in the review title the opportunities and support regarding volunteering/associations. What I don’t like about it is that professors are not always the more dedicated and sometimes the materials that we use in lessons such as exercises and problems are not updated in terms of the technology that is currently on the market. As an example I can mention the problems we were solving in Thermal Engines, the cases that we work in class are representing engines that are not anymore being produced, and I think that we should be working on the real manufacturing that we will find when finishing our studies and work.

    More than a place to study

    My experience as a student is that there are many ways to learn, and studying at the University is definitely not the best one, but it’s a very good one and at UPV affordable. At this university, you can find more to learn than just studying. I strongly recommend the sports service, for less than 10€/month gives you access to lots of facilities and a wide offer of guided activities (including dancing lessons) everything included. Regarding the academic part, it’s a competent university, there’s a fine variety of degrees/masters so that you can study whatever you want (if you are good enough with your access result). There’s room for improvement in the way lectures are given, but most of the professors seem fine if you skip Lectures, do the study on your own, and arrange a tutoring to ask every doubt.

    Amazing experience at UPV

    The UPV is a good place to study your degree. It has great teacher in all the subjects, people that are investigating a lot in their fields. What I like the most is that is not only studying, they also want you to learn by doing practices an team works, and nowadays is a mandatory skill.

    Moreover the campus is great, you have plenty of places to study,to do the projects with classmates o to have relax time.

    Finally, apart from the degree, there are many groups as Euroavia or Hyperloop where to can learn more practical thing than in class, at the same time you gain experience for your future .

    Big campus and new-ways for teaching

    Upv is an extraordinary university for a wide variety of degrees. In my case, I’ve studied aerospace engineering and I cannot be happier from the election I took.
    Starting from the lessons and content, most of the courses from having teachers with a deep understanding which try to makes the learning process an easier way for students. Despite English courses lack some level in particular cases, they are complete and the majority of the teachers make their best to fulfil students requirements. Lab session are probably the best part of the degree here in Valencia, having a well mixed with theory lessons and a lot of deliveries (either single of team ones) which changes they classical way of evaluating and moves it to a more industry alike one.
    Outside from university, a student has a such a big variety for accommodation around, going from university rooms to all kind of apartments and flats for rent. The area where these are based is a nice one, full of places for eating and drinking, and with a quite active night atmosphere, plenty of students. Valencia itself is a beautiful city, touristic and welcoming, same as its people.
    Back to university but far from studying, the university campus is a nice 20-30 minutes long walk through a mix of modern and traditional building, plenty of bars where to feel the student life. The sport service also offers for a reduced price a lot of facilities and lessons to make something different.
    Summarizing, UPV is a pretty complete campus with nice surroundings for living and modern ways of teaching

    Incredible ?

    I wouldn’t choose a different one!
    Of course, this university has lots to improve, as any other. But what makes the difference here is that they know they have to improve, and they do. Constantly.

    This university really counts on their students to propose any changes, any new facilities and asks them every year if there’s something they’d like to change. And then they do it.

    I love my degree, but what I love the most about being a student in the UPV is everything else. All the activities they offer, all the new opportunities, the amazing people, that they help you yo meet foreign people, to improve yourself in a personal and academic way. And the best part? For free! No other fees are applied.

    The beach is only 20 minutes walking from the Campus of Valencia and Gandía, so the location is extraordinary.
    In Valencia, the campus is surrounded by hundreds of shared flats, pubs, public transport, bars and anything you could imagine.
    My best choice in a long while, for sure.

  • Audiovisual Communication
    The best public of Spain

    Obviously, it has many things to improve, but compared to other Spanish public universities (I’ve been in 3 more and also by peer ratings from other universities) is practically the best.

    The campus of Vera (Valencia capital) is in a unique location, with convenient access and all kinds of public transport. The campus itself is a large garden with all the equipment a city can have, from opticians to pharmacies, as well as several recreational and rest areas. The university has good facilities and offers endless sports and cultural activities.

    The much smaller campus of Gandía is located a few meters from the beach of Gandia, one of the best national beaches. It is comfortable and living on the beach of Gandia during the course (not during summer) is very cheap and very comfortable, with renovated apartments with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and terrace for 300 euros per month. Obviously, the campus is not as impressive as Vera’s but it is newer and its facilities are magnificent. To study Audiovisual Communication, despite the complaints during the course, compared to other universities is clearly superior.

    First, for the material. Secondly, because among mediocre teachers there are many very good ones. Finally, there is much more practice than in other universities, in addition to subjects such as animation in 2D and 3D that are not taught in other campuses.
    As for the practices, nothing remarkable except one thing: the university treats the fellows as people. Requires companies that meet minimum conditions, such as schedule, register in the SS and minimum salary (€ 100).

    Of course, there is always a teacher who should not be a teacher and there are many things to be polished, but it is undoubtedly one of the best options for studying in Spain.

    Happy, I would repeat

    Happy to study here, if I had to chose again, I would repeat. There are a lot of facilities to improve yourself with projects, great study atmosphere, a lot of sport opportunities. Also, it has a great campus and is very close to the beach, nice to disconnect.

    Excellent Opportunities

    As an Aerospace Engineering student, the application of theoretical knowledge into a real case is one of the most important aspects in order to obtain a full understanding of many of the fundamental issues regarding this degree.

    This university provides enough opportunities to all of the students. You can see the Formula Student Team, Hyperloop and many other teams raised in the university. If you have an idea, or want to become part of something big, this is your university, as they support most projects brought up by the students.

    Moreover, its campus is one of the most comfortable places to work in, lots of cafeterias, green areas. It’s always full of life.
