6. HOW TO FIND ACCOMMODATION
7. BUDDY PROGRAMME
The purpose of this programme is to help visiting students to integrate in our University and our culture. Volunteer students receive our exchange students, they take them to the incoming meeting and explain how the Faculty works (schedules, publications, cafeteria, associations, etc,) so that their stay is as comfortable as possible right from the beginning.
After you receive your letter of acceptance and the message with the information on the incoming meeting, your buddy will contact you to get the details of your trip to Vitoria-Gasteiz, and to meet you upon arrival. If for some reason you do not receive any communication from your buddy, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
8. SPANISH AND BASQUE LESSONS FOR VISITING STUDENTS
In addition to the Degree subjects, visiting students have the option of taking and intensive Spanish course before starting the first semester. Spanish and Basque courses are also offered each semester for visiting students. These courses may be included in the Learning Agreement because they provide ECTS credits, and a certification of the level studied with the grade achieved (independent from the grades issued by the Faculty of Pharmacy). Information on the Spanish and Basque lessons for visiting students can be found on the following website Cursos de español/euskara para visitantes a la UPV/EHU
9. OTHER PRACTICAL INFORMATION
