UMH International Staff Week III

International Erasmus+ Staff Training Week at the Miguel Hernández University of Elche

 

May 21-25, 2018

We organised our III International Staff Week in May 21-25, 2018.  During this edition, we presented our special project, “Healthy University,” with the main objective of sharing and exchanging information about healthy living. Among other things, we also introduced UMH services firsthand and shared interesting activities such as The Art of Cooking Spanish Tapas Welcome Dinner and a visit to the picturesque coastal town of Altea.
It was a pleasure to welcome so many colleagues from european universities, it was a chance to experience life at our university as well as in Elche and its surrounding area, and also to learn from other experiences.
 
 
We are very satisfied with the results and we hope we can meet you nest 2020.
Let’s work together!

The UMH main campus is located in the city of Elche. Elche is the Valencian Community’s third largest, and it possesses two UNESCO World Heritage sites, the Palmeral of Elche and the Mystery Play of Elche.

Altea

Altea is the UMH’s most artistic campus, located in the privileged Mediterranean environment of the Marina Baixa. One unique feature of this campus is that it is exclusive to the university’s Faculty of Fine Arts. This campus has been designed to respond to two realities: the integration of students and instructors into the inspiring landscape wherein it is found, and the will to meet the specific requirements of a fine arts education. Among other installations, the Altea campus has a forging workshop, spaces dedicated to new media, an experimentation laboratory, artistic foundry, and image and sound studios.
