Norms for visiting foreign students

The growing interest from foreign students, who are not part of already existing exchange programmes, and who wish to broaden their education at the University of Vigo on a short term basis, together with the role of Universities in promoting student inter-university mobility and permanent education, (two key elements within the new framework of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA)), have led the University of Vigo to create the figure of Visiting Foreign Student, in line with the path taken by other institutions and acting in accordance with its competences.

Beneficiaries

Applicable to all foreign students taking courses at a foreign university or higher education institution that is officially recognised and who wish to broaden their education by studying some courses at any centre of the University of Vigo. The status of Visiting Foreign Student is neither applicable to students participating in an exchange program (such as Erasmus +, ISEP, MAE) nor to those studying within the framework of bilateral agreements between the University of Vigo and other universities.

Compulsory documents

For students taking courses during the second term (from January to June), the application deadline is the 15th of October of the previous year. 

Admission

Notification of admission is sent by the International Relations Office after student is accepted at the centre where he/she wishes to enrol.

Students coming from outside the European Union will have to contact their nearest Spanish embassy or consulate in order to get information on legal entry requirements for Spain. Such students will receive a letter of acceptance issued by the International Relations Office to facilitate their receipt of a student visa.

Enrolment

The International Relations Office will notify students about their acceptance to study the courses chosen at the University of Vigo, as well as the dates to officially register. Visiting foreign students will be able to register as such for a maximum period of one academic year. They will have to enrol for a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 60 ECTS credits.
Enrolment may be authorised for any of the courses offered at the University of Vigo. However, access to some courses may be restricted or even excluded due to their specific characteristics or because they are taught in small groups.

Academic rules

Visiting foreign students will be subject to the teaching and academic management of the courses they have enrolled for and their names will appear on the course files like those of the other students.
Once official files have been filled in according to the academic calendar, the secretariat of the centre will issue two free of charge transcripts (in Spanish and in English) stating the courses, credits and grades obtained by the student in accordance with the current regulations.
Studies undertaken by visiting foreign student do not give them any rights towards acquiring a degree issued by the University of Vigo, nor to admission to any degree program.

  • The administrative fees corresponding to the opening of the academic file, issue of the university card and the compulsory school insurance. 
  • An administration fee of 400 € for four month stays and 800 € for annual stays.

Información general

 

Es imprescindible que el alumnado extranjero posea un seguro médico con validez en España.

Los estudiantes de la Unión Europea pueden utilizar su tarjeta sanitaria europea. Los estudiantes del resto del mundo deberán contratar un seguro con validez en España.

Le recomendamos a todo el alumnado que contrate un seguro médico internacional con cualquier compañía de seguros, que incluya la cobertura de accidentes, el traslado sanitario internacional, la asistencia en viajes, la repatriación en caso de accidente o enfermedad grave, defunción etc.

La UVigo ha negociado con la compañía de seguros ONCAMPUS una cobertura muy amplia para estudiantes internacionales con una única cuota por período y que resulta bastante asequible.

Si te interesa, puedes contratarlo directamente con la compañía a través de su sitio web (recuerda seleccionar la UVigo entre las opciones disponibles): Oncampus-estudia

Una vez en España, los estudiantes procedentes de la Unión Europea deberán acudir a un centro de salud de la Seguridad Social con la tarjeta sanitaria europea, donde les asignarán un médico general.

Los estudiantes que no pertenezcan a países de la Unión Europea deberán informarse en su país de origen de los hospitales y de los centros de salud con los que su compañía aseguradora tiene acuerdos en España. Generalmente, en este último caso, el estudiante asume los gastos sanitarios y posteriormente le solicita su reembolso a su compañía de seguros.
