International and visitor’s students

The University of Cadiz offers international students the possibility of enrolling as visitor students of any international mobility programme, except Erasmus+ students, who will enrol in the University of Cádiz through the specific Erasmus+ registration process.

The programme allows students to enrol in different modules without obtaining a degree certification. However, at the end of the stay, a transcript of records will be issued in order for the students to apply for recognition at their Home University.

Spanish students who want to become visiting students at the University of Cadiz should contact directly with Vicerrectorado de alumnos

If you are interested in obtaining an official degree certification at University of Cadiz, you should register as a regular student. For further information, visit the Vicerrectorado de alumnos website: Vicerrectorado de alumnos website.

 

Regarding the necessary documentation to be sent we distinguish between two types of students:
  • Nominated students form a partner university, who will benefit from exemptions and discounts on academic fees and registry fees according to the specific mobility agreement. Please note that all communications must be channelled through international programmes managers of both Home and Host institutions.
  • Non-nominated students from a partner university or Freemover students, who have to pay the applicable fee of 45 €/ECTS, in addition to registry fees (65.92 €). A discount of 50% on academic fees will be applied to students over 65 years old and retirees (a retiree certificate is required).

 

Students can register from only 1 module (6 ECTS) up to 5 modules (30 ECTS) per semester (60 annual ECTS maximum).
A) Application process
  • Partner universities will formally nominate the students and then send an email to  alumno.visitante@uca.es  with the students’ personal details (name and surname, email address and area of knowledge). Students coming as Freemovers for this exchange have to send their personal details directly to aforementioned email address.
  • The University of Cádiz will send an email to nominated students with a link to the online platform, through which the exchange procedure will be managed. Please read carefully _INSTRUCTIONS –to fill in the application form in the previous platform.
  • The link to access the platform is valid for 10 days, counting from the moment the student receives the email. However, once you access the application form and save some information, the link will remain available until the moment of submitting your application or until the closing date of the call. If at the moment of filling the application form you do not have all the necessary information, you can click the “save” button to store your progress and access the application form later on by using the same link in order to complete it or attach any file. However, once the application form is submitted, the platform will not be accessible again with the same link, which is personal and non-transferable. Therefore, if any mistake is made in the application form, please write an email to alumno.visitante@uca.es
B) Considerations

B) Considerations for Medicine Degree students
For students taking a Degree in Medicine, there are a number of essential requirements to meet:
  • Students MUST BE NOMINATED BY A PARTNER UNIVERSITY THAT CURRENTLY HAS A SPECIFIC MOBILITY AGREEMENT WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF CADIZ.

 

  • Clinical rotation can only be applied for in the context of the official calendar of the Degree in Medicine study programme, which is carried out between 1st October and 30th May.

 

  • The clinical rotations are divided in 3 blocks comprising only the sixth-year module. These blocks are: 1. Medical Block (Bloque Médico or BM in Spanish), 2. Surgical Block (Bloque Quirúrgico or BQ) and 3. Maternal-infant Block (Bloque Materno Infantil or BMI). Each of them can be carried out indistinctly during the following periods: 1) from 9th October to 22nd December, b) from 8th January to 15th March, and c) from 19th March to 25th May.

 

  • Students interested in applying for these clinical rotations should do so in the following nomination period through the International Office of their Home university (in order to better channel their demands as well as to facilitate the response and coordination between both institutions): From 9th October to 22nd December, for the call opened from 1st June to 15th October. From 8th January to 15th March, for the call opened from 1st June to 15th October. From 19th March to 25th May, for the call opened from 1st November to 15th May.

 

  • It is not possible to take third-year theoretical-practical modules and fouth and fifth-year modules at the same time due to schedule incompatibility of clinical internships at the hospital (since the block of third-year clinical modules block take place at the hospital on Thursdays and Fridays, while fourth and fifth-year modules take place on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays).

 

However, all the information related to modules and timetables can be found in the Faculty of Medicine website, in the section “Planificación Docente”, through the following link: https://medicina.uca.es/walumnos-index_html/guia-docente-curso-201718/

 

 

B) Compulsory insurance
All Visiting Students must take out compulsory travel insurance, with coverage of medical expenses, third party liability and repatriation. For that purpose, you can find the relevant information about the ARAG insurance at this link.
You can also take out the specific insurance with another company. Once the student arrives at the University of Cádiz, he/she must submit a copy of the insurance policy at the time of registration.
The registration as Visiting Student at UCA does not have any academic effects in our institution. Academic validity and recognition depend on Home University.
At the end of the stay, the students taking degree modules will receive a transcript of records in electronic format within a month approximately from the end date of the course. If the case of students taking Master’s degree modules, their transcript of records in electronic format will be issued after the end date to record of the academic year  in July.
