The Polytechnic University of Valencia as it is known in English, or in Valencian: Universitat Politècnica de València is a public university in the province of Valencia in Spain. The institute was originally named the Higher Polytechnic School of Valencia when it was founded in 1968, and achieved university status in 1971. Some of its component schools, however, have been in existence for more than a century. UPV’s main subject areas are science and technology.Show more
The UPV is the closest thing I know to the students’ Heaven: a small city within a city made for students. All kinds of activities are offered in the huge green space of the campus. Businesses, Sports facilities, Language courses… Valencia is right now one of the biggest Erasmus students destinations, and that is fully understandable when you look particularly at the UPV campus. Also, the city itself is amazing: beautiful weather all year long, by the sea… I recommend to any student in the world to study here.View more

Even if I’m still a freshman, I can already say with total certainty that I have chosen my university very well. From the first day, one notices the great atmosphere that breathes around the UPV. The libraries and classrooms have high quality material and the staff is very friendly. But if something stands out above the rest, it is the campus, from the great variety and quality of the restaurants to the sports activities, in fact I am enrolled in tennis lessons and in the futsal league, all thanks to the communication system on which the university counts. And trust me, whatever your passion, in the UPV you will find some activity with which you will feel developed on a personal and professional level.View more
If you are looking for a university with a lot of relations with companies this is your place.
It has a great education deal, mostly engineering, but also science, arts and business administration.
Is not the easiest university, in fact, is quite hard, but you can access many resources like YouTube channel, university web…
I’ll be in my fourth year and I can tell that its huge campus, all the libraries, gym, parks… make easier your life.
The best of the Polytechnic University of Valencia is undoubtedly the campus that surrounds it. A green city where you can enjoy university life in its entirety. The campus facilities are wonderful, although the bureaucracy of the institution itself makes it difficult to access any of them. In addition, you must pay for certain services that I think would be beneficial if it were free for students.
On the other hand, as for the classes themselves, I miss a greater internationalization of degrees. A university like this should be a pioneer in English classes, exchange programs and internships abroad. Unfortunately, according to which one of these is a bit complicated to achieve. On the other hand, regarding services such as the library or the student’s house should be open 24 hours a day. It is a joy to see how the school facilities are available at any time of the day in universities such as Munich.
However, it is true that the facilities are incredible and that you have the latest technologies to study. In addition, schools are in continuous renovation, something to consider for an institution with more than 50 years that also suffers from the passage of time. Without a doubt, the Polytechnic University of Valencia is a great choice to study, whether you are a national or exchange student who wants to spend a great experience in a city as wonderful as Valencia.View more
It has a large university campus with a lot of services dedicated to students. In addition, the university has the best laboratories. There is a huge network of services and associations for students. It is one of the Spanish universities most involved in the Erasmus program and receives more than 2000 international students every year. In addition, all internships are remunerated.View more
My university is a place where everyone is welcome and human education equals technique. It is a place where my scientific interest is awake while being comfortable for me. This makes me identify with her and make me proud.View more
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.View more
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.View more
