We inform that due to the very high demand for participation in the Miguel Hernandez Staff Training Week in Elche, registration is now closed.
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. Incoming students highlight its significant cultural and leisure options: Elche boasts several museums, a college town atmosphere in its city center, and peace and quiet in the Altabix neighborhood (the UMH campus is located there). Elche is in a truly privileged location 20 km from Alicante. It is in a strategic position, forming, together with other nearby towns, the southern axis of the Mediterranean Arc, a district that boasts great dynamism in both demographic and economic terms. The road network connecting Elche to the provinces of Alicante and Murcia is in good condition, and a functional transportation system exists via air, rail, and bus.
The UMH has facilities at two locations in the city of Orihuela. Orihuela is the capital of the region of the Vega Baja del Segura, and adjacent to the Region of Murcia. Lying on the banks of the Segura River, Orihuela is where Miguel Hernández, the illustrious poet for whom this university is named, was born and raised. There are two UMH divisions in Orihuela: The School of Engineering of Orihuela (EPSO) and the Faculty of Social and Legal Sciences of Orihuela.
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 an image and sound studio.
