    Academic excellence nurtured in teaching, research, and innovation.

    My experience is one of pride that I have been able to join this institution. The effort and sacrifice that I have put into during these years allowed me to succeed, find opportunities, as well as strengthen my skills. I would therefore recommend this university to anyone.

    Our university staff is devoted to the promotion of activities, projects and contests available. If it wasn´t for this service, I wouldn´t have joined summer courses or sports clubs.

    Lectures are entertaining and appealing and have successfully adapted to de pandemic situation to ensure this institution remains a source of pedagogical effectiveness and academic credibility.

    If you see international connections as an important factor, you may be interested in this university, as it provides opportunities to study abroad and meet with other students from various locations and backgrounds, which opens your mind to people from different places, and usually forming real friendships in the process.

    Food areas by the school are sublime and offer access to incredibly fresh and local food. It is easily the best I have had at a college. Don´t go for the food, but the food is stellar. This is definitely one of my favourite parts, along with the sports and activities, which include swimming, playing tennis, running or football.

    This university is brilliant when it comes to supporting students when they are confused and most of the teaching staff care about the well-being of students. The mentorship program offered permits further guidance in completing your degree.

    To sum up, due to the community spirit of the university and the professionalism of the staff, I would strongly recommend joining this institution.

    Nursing USC

    USC is a university with good and positive things and others that should be changed. It is a university that offers a multitude of degrees and double degrees, as well as master’s degrees, so it offers a large number of professional opportunities, being able to choose between all those options. It has a campus in which many faculties are concentrated, the South campus, and then there are others more scattered, which are the ones that would make up the North campus. In the Nursing degree, one of the problems of the faculty is that it is not on the South campus, so there is no parking or parking facilities, in addition to the fact that the façade is somewhat old. One of the most remarkable things is that there are internships in the hospital already from the second year, so you are already getting in touch with the profession very early. Inside the classrooms are more renovated although they are not very big, but they are equipped with projectors and blackboards. As for the teachers, there is a bit of everything, those who care and dedicate themselves to their work and those who do not have such a direct relationship with the student. In general, it is a good university, which also has a lot of sports and other activities such as languages and volunteering, and the university environment of the city is very good, offering a wide variety of plans for students.

    "Great location"

    The University of Santiago de Compostela has two campuses, one in the city of Santiago de Compostela and another in the city of Lugo. Santiago is a small city with a lot of student atmosphere and a wide cultural and musical offer. In addition, you can find many flats shared with other students at a good price. The university offers a wide variety of degrees related to science and humanities, summer workshops, training practices, language school, national and international exchange programs … In short, it is a very recommendable place to live some beautiful University years

    Study in Santiago What do you think?

    I am a student of the USC in the branch of the biosanitary sciences, more concretely in the race of Infirmary; Then I will try to expose as clearly as possible my experience during my first year in this race and university. Within a career there are two basic pillars in my opinion, the facilities and teaching, the second being more important than the first. As for the facilities, I have to say that in the faculty of nursing it is not one of its strengths, since from the outside it looks like an old and shabby building with which the passage of time has been primed; However inside is not so catastrophic nor much less, have enough facilities for the development of theoretical classes, however in the field of practice is where we can see more gaps, Since the economic crisis of 2008 the constant cuts in education have reduced the economic capacity of the faculty and the university in general, resulting in practical classes that are theoretical and those that try to be practical are reduced to a huge group of students Sharing a single test tube. In spite of this the university is not only equipped classes or beautiful buildings, but the true spirit of the university is in the faculty and the students. In the first course of nursing courses 9 subjects, and I will not enter each of the teachers who teach them, but if I can say with knowledge of the cause that vagrancy and chabacanería reign in the teaching spirit of the great part of Teachers, where theoretical classes become political meetings or practical classes are composed solely of the viewing of videos taken from YouTube "related to the subject" however and thanks to them if I see in the obligation to highlight the work of Two of my professors, the biology teacher and Dr. Meaños, who was in charge of teaching clinical anatomy, I could see what it means to be a university professor, they wanted our interest, commitment and dedication, they pursued knowledge and did not note it; Unlike the rest of his classmates of which I would not be honest with myself if I put them at the level of these teachers. The USC has a lot of flaws, like most public institutions, but it is also worth noting that they have some high-quality professors, which in essence have been the reason that a server has not reneged on its university. There is a lot of work to do and much to improve but we are the students who must do it, we must not be satisfied.

    Opinión

    Buena ciudad y buena universidad. Profesorado competente y múltiples actividades promovidas por la Universidad. Lo peor, el tiempo de la ciudad. No para de llover salvo en verano.

    Las salidas profesionales son buenas.

    Best Science Campus in Galicia

    I sincerely believe that we are talking about the best possible place to study sciences in Galicia, both at the academic and research levels. It stands out for its good positioning in general rankings at a Spanish level. I had the pleasure of receiving classes from some of the young chemists with the greatest projection at a European level, as well as from one or another professor recognized for his extensive research career.

    Bueno pero no excelente

    Al tener la mayoría de las facultades condensadas en una ciudad pequeña el ambiente estudiantil que se ha creado es maravilloso, hay numerosas bibliotecas y actividades disponibles para la comunidad universitaria así como zonas verdes y zonas de descanso que permiten desconectar un poco del mundo en general.
    En el ámbito académico podría mejorar, podemos encontrar tanto catedráticos excepcionales como profesores poco interesados en transmitir conocimientos adecuadamente. Muchas asignaturas se basan en memorizar y recitar enormes cantidades de apuntes en vez de tratar de explicar más a fondo los diversos conceptos para poder interiorizarlos y llevarlos a práctica de forma correcta.

    Estudiar para profesor en Lugo

    He estudiado la carrera de Profesor de Educación Física (EF) en esta facultad de Lugo. Mi experiencia fue muy positiva.
    Los profesores que nos formaron eran de primer nivel, gente con mucho bagaje en el campo de la docencia y también en el ámbito de las materias específicas de EF.
    En cuanto al plan de estudios, es muy acertado que aproximadamente el 70% de las clases sean prácticas, ya que la práctica es lo que realmente te prepara para poder dar clases y enseñar a los alumnos de forma adecuada, fluida y provechosa.
    Recomiendo esta facultad a toda aquella persona cuya vocación sea la enseñanza.
