University of Oviedo

The University of Oviedo was founded 400 years ago. Today there are roughly 20,000 students at the university. It has two main campuses, one in the city of Oviedo and one in the city of Gijon. Gijon is right on the coast, while Oviedo is further inland. It takes less than a half hour to drive from one city to the other. The limited tourism in the area makes it easier to become acquainted with Spanish culture.

Erasmus+

This is an Erasmus + agreement. As an Erasmus student, you will be participating in the world’s largest exchange programme and can study at good European universities without paying tuition. Through Erasmus+, you will be given an extra grant that provides more money to enjoy your stay.

Fee

You will not be paying tuition at this institution and will receive the Erasmus+ grant in addition to a grant from the State Educational Loan Fund, Norway. You will receive the same financial support from the State Educational Loan Fund, Norway as for studies in Norway, in addition to a travel grant. You must pay a semester fee to HVL in order to receive a loan and grant from the State Educational Loan Fund, Norway during the exchange period.

Course approval

In order to apply for a student exchange programme, your application must first be approved by the study programme of your faculty. An approved application means that you have been given an academic pre-approval for the course or traineeship you will be doing abroad. The academic pre-approval specifies what you will be doing while you are on an exchange programme and confirms these activities will be fully approved as part of your education plan at HVL.
