  • The historical building of the University of Valencia, still known as La Nau Valencia, located in the old part of the city near the church Iglesia del Patriarca o del Corpus Christi. The main façade of the building overlooks the beautiful square (Plaza del Col-legi del Patriarca) where they planted orange trees, and all the space in between is lined with tiles. University of Valencia was founded at the turn of the XV-XVI centuries and is considered one of the oldest in Spain. Now the building houses the library and the exhibition centre. University faculties, and 18 of them are in modern buildings in different parts of the city. We were limited to inspection of the inside of the University courtyard in the center of which is a monument to the scientist-Renaissance humanist Juan Luis Vivesu (Juan Luis Vives), the native of Valencia. We examine the premises did not become, if they are interested in, you can hear, nobody will stop.

  • Great univeristy, most classes are offered both in Valenciano and Castellano. Teachers expect Erasmus/International students and are understanding of the language barriers. Campus buildings spread along Avenida Blasco Ibañez. Convenient location as you have everything you need close by.
