Language Certificate All incoming exchange students coming to UPV should give proof of their sufficient knowledge of the Spanish Language in one of the following ways:
- A certificate of having achieved level A1 (CEFR) of Spanish language
- A certificate stating that they have taken at least 100 hours of Spanish language lessons
If the student's actual language abilities do not correspond to the ones mentioned above, he/she will not be accepted.
Exceptions can be considered if the applicant intends to do ONLY project work (bachelor or master thesis, etc.) supervised in English or another language. A letter or email explaining this circumstance should be enclosed with the application documents. These students cannot participate in the Spanish language regular courses, which begin at A2 level of CEFR.
For students attending lectures taught in Spanish is advisable to achieve at least level B1. Notice that in some courses it is required to have level B2.
There could be lecturers who require previous knowledge to attend their classes so we normally check it at your Transcript of records (for previous knowledge of Chemistry, Graphic design, etc.)Also there are lecturers who require a minimum of Spanish level because of the technobabble if that is the case we will let you know when assessing your application. Impossible to take more than 12 credits in another UPV School / Faculty different to the School / Faculty where you are registered. Not following this recommendation may result in denial of enrollment in subjects above these 12 credits. Note that the EPS Alcoy and Gandia are located in Alcoy and Gandia, a 100km and 60km away from Valencia. Commuting between campuses is not always feasable.
