However, it is also possible to take courses from other faculties, but in such a case, one must be associated with the faculty in question.

NB!: Erasmus students must take at least 25 UPV credits as exchange students (1 UPV credit is equivalent to 0.8 ECTS).

NB!: UPV can only receive exchange students for either the autumn semester, or the autumn semester and spring semester combined. In other words, it is not possible to choose only the spring semester.

The faculty ETSIAMN only offers courses in Spanish.

Semester timing
