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
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.
First semester and full year: 5 June
Second semester: 5 december
The university is a partner of Housing Anywhere, an international students accommodation platform. Those students coming to Murcia can find and book their lodging in www.housinganywhere.com. In this platform rooms are offered by Spanish students who are doing an exchange abroad. The platform is for free and safe, only when you make a book you have to pay a charge for the service.
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.
Students can find all important information like e.g. sport and leisure activities, library, etc. in our website: http://www.ucam.edu/admision/servicios/sie
