One of the things that most impressed me about the University was the healthy environment and the feeling of energy there. We also had high-quality materials and facilities to help us with our education.
The International Department did everything it could to make my stay as pleasant as possible from day one. They helped me find the right balance between the professional world and my classes at the university.
I have developed a special relationship with this University. My stay here, with all the lectures and master classes, and all the experiences I shared with my fellow students, helped me discover what really interests me, to find my way.
My stay in Madrid has been an incredible experience. I’m living in Madrid, which is totally different from my home town. It’s another way of life and people are more open minded. I love Madrid!.
From day one, both professors and students have helped me integrate and enjoy this experience. The University helped me with the language by offering an intensive course that allowed me to improve my Spanish before starting the classes.
I’ve been able to choose the subjects I want, and that’s why I enjoy each class more and more. Class groups are smaller than in my country, so we have a better relationship with the teachers. Also, with practical classes such as tennis and golf we make the most of our time.
I study in Italy and I wanted to experience living in Spain. If you come here it is obvious you're going to enjoy yourself, not only because of the studies, but also because of the culture, the cities, the atmosphere...
Classes are small, which allows us to have a more direct relationship with our classmates and professors. The professors even offer to explain the material or help us outside the class! This makes us more motivated and improves the quality of teaching.
If I want to be a doctor I need to have a very global view of things. An experience like this will help me in my personal and professional future. It changes the way you think.
We've always wanted to take part in an exchange. Taking advantage of the fact that our University is also part of the Laureate International Universities Network, we saw a lot possibilities… Chile, Brazil, Spain and Peru, but we chose to come here because of the language and because it had the best references. We applied in March and April, and by May we knew we were coming to Universidad Europea. The University responded very quickly.
We hope that many more people from Ecuador come here, and we’d also like Spanish students to go to our university to study. At the moment, we’re very interested in doing a dual degree with the Universidad Europea.
Advertising is an international career and being here allows us to learn a lot about European advertising. Classes are in English and our classmates come from all over the world: Brazil, the Netherlands, Mexico, Ecuador, Austria, Italy, Spain...
