Student’s Life

Life in Valencia

The decision to continue your education in Valencia is a great choice. It is the third largest city in Spain, located on the Mediterranean coast and equidistant from Madrid and Barcelona.

Valencia enjoys excellent weather: it is no coincidence that many Californian companies have set up campuses here in search of a climate similar to their own. The city also offers internationally-renowned gastronomy, and architecture that combines the traditional and the modern.

In addition, the cost of living is not nearly as high as in other Spanish cities, which makes Valencia a more comfortable and affordable option with a high quality of life, so much so that it is rated as the most liveable city in the world, according to a ranking by InterNations.







Getting there

The Valencia Airport connects the city to national and international destinations. There are also two central train stations and marine connections available through the Port of Valencia.

Getting around

Valencia’s compact size means that you can walk or cycle almost everywhere, and for longer distances there is metro, tram or bus service.








The city is full of culture, including cultural spaces such as the City of Arts and Sciences, La Rambleta and La Marina, museums such as the Institut Valencià d’Art Modern (IVAM), the Museu Valencià de la Il•lustració i de la Modernitat (MuVIM), the Bombas Gens, the Centre del Carme Cultura Contemporània and the Fundació Bancaja; gallery halls and showrooms from leading brands.

The City of Arts and Sciences

A unique complex dedicated to scientific and cultural dissemination, consisting of six major buildings and structures: L’Hemisfèric, L’Umbracle, the Museu de les Ciències (Museum of Science), L’Oceanogràfic, the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía and L’Àgora.

La Rambleta

La Rambleta is a catalyst of contemporary culture with a dynamic programme of quality offerings, cutting-edge creative currents and presentations by emerging artists.

La Marina

La Marina de València connects the city to the Mediterranean and the world. It opens its doors to culture, creativity, innovation, education and entrepreneurship, and consolidates the city’s position as an epicentre of sailing and tourism.


The Institut Valencià d’Art Modern (IVAM) was founded in 1986 with the aim of promoting the knowledge, preservation, development and dissemination of modern and contemporary art.


The MuVIM is a museum dedicated to preserving and disseminating the ideas and values that have made the modern world possible, because ideas have the power to change our lives.

Bombas Gens

The Bombas Gens Centre d’Art is a family project developed by a highly skilled team of professionals. The team members have invested their vast experience and education to serve the arts centre and the public that visits it every day.

Centro del Carmen de Cultura Contemporánea

The Centre del Carme, a former convent restored by the Generalitat Valenciana for cultural purposes, serves as the headquarters for the Consorci de Museus de la Comunitat Valenciana.

Fundación Bancaja

The Fundación Bancaja hosts cultural activities such as exhibitions, educational workshops, conference cycles and prizes, and provides support for Valencian language and culture, always through the combination of cultural and social action.


Valencia is a city where you can bask in creativity in every corner.

It is one of the cities to have contributed the most brands to the Milan Furniture Fair, such as Gandia Blasco, Capdell, Punt Mobles and Viccarbe. It is also home to numerous award-winning and recognised architecture, design and communication studios.

There are also several prestigious publishing houses in the city that specialise in architecture and design, such as TC Cuadernos and Gràffica, and restaurants headed by some of the country’s most renowned chefs, such as Quique Dacosta, Ricard Camarena and Begoña Rodrigo.

In addition, in 2022 Valencia has been the World Design Capital, which is why numerous events, acts and projects have taken place in the city, and being part of them has given us many opportunities and benefits.


Valencia has a wide variety of green spaces, including the internationally-recognized Turia Gardens, a former riverbed that today has been transformed into an expansive garden providing a green space that crosses through the entire city. You can also visit the Viveros Gardens and Parc Central, El Saler and La Malvarrosa beaches, and the l’Albufera nature park.
