Like all universities, it has administrative, organizational, etc. problems, but they are minor. The campus looks like an independent university city (interpret it as something positive or negative to your liking). It offers a wide variety of degrees and tends to innovate its offer often.
The Jaume I University offers its students very new facilities and the most cutting-edge technology of the moment. With highly qualified teachers who help students learn and train as future professionals. It also has good and extensive sports facilities, with many opportunities.
Even though it’s in such a small city, this university has anything a student needs, in a very clean and well-kept campus. From bars to cafeterias, shops, libraries and banks, it has somewhere for all of its students to spend their time at any time of year. Couldn’t be happier studying in this small community and getting to know so many amazing people from all around the world.
The campus has a lot of installations like restaurants, banks and optical shops. We have also a big space where students can enjoy their free time and a very big library where we can take books and use the laptops of the library. However, the campus is small compared with others campus such as Universidad Politecnica de Valencia campus.
The UJI is a very large and new university, it has recently turned 25 years old. All the faculties are integrated into the same campus and the university is well connected to the city centre by a tram.
All spaces are accessible and the campus has faculties of all branches, library, sports areas, heated pool, green areas and research buildings.
All the study rooms are well equipped, the science areas are very demanding and the UJI is very important in the field of research.
I recommend this university!
It has an accessible campus and is well connected to the city, so it is very easy to become familiar with it and get comfortable. The gardens and green areas allow you to forget about the stress of the city as well as having a coffee outdoors between classes. Not being a huge university, the treatment is very close and familiar, and has a cultural offer to consider.
Well comunicated, quite new, all the university services are together, and the studies have a good level at least in engineering degrees.
It has nice gardens inside, the library is quite big and opens 24h while in exam periods, the sports center is really complete and cheap, with an indoor pool, tennis courts, running track… and everything you can imagine
