Activities for International Students

The University of Oviedo makes every attempt to assist its international students in the arrival and settling-in process. To do so, the academic institution organizes a variety of activities especially intended to allow foreign students to get acquainted with the region in which they will be living and gradually get to know all the opportunities that the University of Oviedo and its surroundings have to offer.

Each student can choose from a varied slate of options to gradually start integrating into their new country. Thus, those who come to Asturias before the start of the academic year may participate in specific welcome activities.
