Training / placement stays

Students who will need to do a practical courses (clinical stays, ...), not Erasmus placement, they will have to discuss it with the UCAM coordinator once they will arrive at our institution, not before. Only for Nursery, Physiotherapy or others "medical" courses  it is compulsory to come to an agreement with your UCAM coordinator before your arrival.

List of UCAM exchange coordinators: http://www.ucam.edu/servicios/internacional/vicerrectorado/tutores

Learning agreement

In order to fill in the learning agreement, students can find all important information of courses and ECTS in our link  http://www.ucam.edu/estudios/. I strongly recommend your students to contact first with our Erasmus coordinators. If they wish to work on their final project, they have to discuss it with them, in order to look for a thesis Director here or suitable "project" courses. About postgraduated courses, the same.

Accommodation

Unfortunately we havent got halls of residence so students have to look for private accommodation. They can find informatiion about accommodation in our website  http://campus.ucam.edu/web/index2.php?id=sie/residencias.php and next.

Spanish language courses

As the language of instruction at our institution is Spanish, we strongly recommend International Students to attend our "Lengua Española y Cultura Hispánica" with 5 ECTS/100 euros per semester. More information please contact the professor Carolina Padilla CPadilla@ucam.edu. However none language certificate is required with the application form.
