The University is situated in the city of Valencia on the east coast of Spain and is a short walk from the sea. Valencia experiences short mild winters and long hot dry summers a little different from what you are used to at Swansea! The university focuses on scientific study and research goals and provides a language centre for students to learn Spanish and other foreign languages. The number of places in student halls is limited so be prepared to look off campus for accommodation and begin the process as soon as possible. Check out this video about UPV!
