Every year, the University of Oviedo receives more than a thousand foreign students. It is a destination that is highly sought after and highly valued by international students owing to its academic prestige and its privileged location in a setting such as that of the Principality of Asturias.
In order to make the legal and academic paperwork easier and to help foreign students in their process of adaptation, the University of Oviedo makes a broad network of services and advice available to them that will help them to resolve their question expeditiously.
The Office for International Relations provides the information and support needed to complete all academic paperwork, facilitating the university student's adaptation.
Through the Office for International Relations, they will get all the information and support they need to complete the legal and academic paperwork and to carry out all essential paperwork, such as opening a bank account or to study the different accommodation options. Future University of Oviedo students can plan their trip in advance and have all the information they need prior to arrival in Asturias.
Help in the first few weeks of their stay will also come from fellow students. The a-dUO programme puts the new student in touch with a Spanish student from the same campus, who will advise them and guide them during their first few weeks in Asturias.
Foreign students will also have a wide variety of cultural, sporting and leisure activities available to them promoted by the University or student associations.
