WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU ARRIVE AT THE UMH
If students need help during their first days at the UMH, the student delegation of each faculty will provide them with the necessary assistance.
The student delegation of each faculty will help incoming ERASMUS students find accommodations near the campus in private apartments, which are normally shared with other students, ERASMUS, or locals. Students should contact the student delegation of their faculty before their arrival at the UMH. Please note that the student delegation will be closed during August, so contact should be made before then. Students can also search for accommodations by directly contacting owners from our Programa Nido database.
SPANISH LANGUAGE COURSES
The Miguel Hernández University organizes a Welcome Day in October for Fall semester and another in March for Spring semester so that ERASMUS and local students can meet one another.
