175 STUDENTS PARTICIPATED IN THE BUDDY PROGRAM DURING THE 2018/19 SCHOOL YEAR

During the 2018/19 school year, 175 Miguel Hernández University of Elche students took part in the Buddy program. During Fall semester, 162 matches were made between local and incoming students, while during Spring semester there were 124.

The Buddy program, which is run by the Vice Rectorate for International Relations, consists in facilitating contact between a local person, either a UMH student or alumnus, and an incoming student from a different university who has come to the UMH on an international exchange program.

Seventy-one percent of incoming students positively assessed the experience of joining the Buddy program, and 58% of its participants recognized that this program satisfactorily fulfilled their expectations.

The purpose of the program is based on sponsoring newly arrived students to the UMH and provide them with opportunities to integrate socially and academically. Furthermore, in order for the assistance to be as helpful as possible, the matching criterion is based on matching participants from either the same degree program or faculty. “It is very important for Erasmus students, like me, to find somebody who can help them as soon as they arrive here,” said Rossella Farca, a student from the Italian University of Turin, during her stay at the UMH.

Likewise, besides practicing a foreign language, the advantages of participating in the Buddy program enable students, both local as well as incoming, to meet new people, cultures, and customs. Participation in the program is also worth one extra point on applications by students for the Erasmus+ Study program.

Laura Saenz, an incoming student from El Bosque University in Bogotá, Colombia, relates how she received constant assistance from the very first moment of her Destino program stay. “My buddy is incredible; thanks to her, I met a lot of new people, and adapting to my classes was easier,” she affirms. 

Through the UMH Erasmus Experience Club, the Buddy program carries out various activities, field trips, and outings during the school year to introduce UMH surroundings to its members. Nearly two-thirds of those who took part this past school year positively assessed the organization of these kinds of activities.

The period for participating in the Buddy program for the upcoming 2019/20 school year is currently open and will be until the end of July. If you would like to take part, complete this form.

UMH AND NEW YORK FILM ACADEMY BEGIN CONVERSATIONS ABOUT ESTABLISHING JOINT PROJECTS

The undergraduate programs of Audiovisual Communication and Journalism, and the Dual Bachelor’s in Audiovisual Communication & Journalism at the Miguel Hernández University of Elche have begun conversations about establishing joint projects with the New York Film Academy (NYFA) at its location in Amsterdam.

The Audiovisual Communication coordinator, Begoña Ivars Nicolás, along with its coordinator of projection, Montserrat Jurado Martín, met with Devin Crowley, the creative director of New York Film Academy Amsterdam, to specify proposals for various activities between both institutions through either a collaboration or specific framework agreement.

Among the proposals for activities include one- or two-week workshops for UMH students at that European location as well as the possibility of the NYFA creative director lecturing or participating in a conference on the Elche Campus.

A framework collaboration agreement would enable students enrolled in the aforementioned programs to take advantage of official NYFA training, as well as receive assistance regarding travel, stays, and travel visas where applicable.

The NYFA is one of the world’s most emblematic film schools, and focuses primarily on filmmaking. However, it also provides specialized training in photography, lighting, documentaries, video games, interpretation, graphic design, television journalism, as well as film and television productions.

The NYFA has campuses in Los Angeles and New York, in addition to facilities in Miami, the Gold Coast (Australia), Florence, Paris, at Harvard University, and others elsewhere. It offers all kinds of training, ranging from short seminars, one-year programs, to accelerated three-year undergraduate programs, such as its Bachelor of Arts in Media Studies in Los Angeles and its Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in both Miami and Los Angeles.

UMH TO HOST 25 EUROPEAN STUDENTS DURING THE INTERNATIONAL SUMMER UNIVERSITY EVENT

The Miguel Hernández University of Elche will welcome 25 students from various European universities for the Summer University international week, which has been organized by AEGEE-Alicante (Alicante chapter of the European Students’ Forum).

From July 17 – 29, the participants, whose ages range from 18 -30, will travel to Spain from countries such as Russia, Hungary, Greece, Holland, and Azerbaijan, among others. This is the first year that participating students will stay in accommodations on Elche Campus facilities during their stay. The UMH Vice Rectorate for International Relations is collaborating in the event in matters of organization and logistics.

This Summer University event, under the artistic slogan of ‘cinema,’ will offer various dynamics, engage in discussions, visit neighboring locales, and hold workshops in La Galia Building on the Elche Campus of the UMH. The students present will be introduced to products and traditions from the province of Alicante, which in turn will enable them to act as ambassadors of these values in their countries of origin.

Furthermore, the international week is holding events that are open to both the public and the entire UMH community. These include rafting, which will take place on Monday, July 22, and a visit to the Fuentes de L’Algar waterfalls and the town of Altea, on Friday, July 26. In order to participate in these events, this form must be completed either on or before July 15.

The AEGEE-Alicante Summer University is an event of international dimensions, the objective of which is to publicize the culture of the province of Alicante while it creates an environment for learning and cultural exchange among European youth, which in turn enhances the visibility of the UMH and province of Alicante throughout the European Community. Every year, this project attracts more than 2,000 youngsters from all over Europe.

The European Students’ Forum, or AEGEE, is an international association present in 40 countries with some 13,000 members, the most of which are university undergraduate and graduate students. The values the association promotes include personal development and non-formal education, cultural exchange, active citizenship, and furthering organizational skills in youth.

UMH INITIATES ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY STUDIES WITH THE ITALIAN UNIVERSITY OF PERUGIA

Antonio Boggia, an associate professor from the Department of Agricultural, Food and Environmental Sciences at the Italian University of Perugia, visited the UMH Campus of Orihuela Desamparados and that of Elche with the objective of learning about the development of different skills for assessing sustainability and the role of ecosystem services.

During his stay, which was made possible by the Erasmus+ international mobility program for the training of faculty and research personnel, data on environmental studies of Spanish cases were compiled and comparisons between Spanish and Italian histories were made for both teaching and research alike. The stay also offered an additional feature, the projection of the development of various joint European projects between both universities.

Furthermore, other activities included examining the work undertaken for assessing sustainability within Spain, analyzing ecosystem services, and the sharing of environmental methods employed at the UMH. Local faculty who accompanied Boggia in these activities were professor Francisco José del Campo Gomis, from the Bachelor’s in Environmental Science, and associate professor Asunción Agulló Torres, from The Department of Agro-Environmental Economics, Cartography Engineering and Graphic Expression in Engineering.
