UNIVERSIDAD POLITECNICA DE VALENCIA

 

The Universidad Politecnica de Valencia (UPV) offers UT students, especially Civil Engineering students an excellent opportunity to take a variety of courses alongside local students. UT has had a reciprocal relationship with this school since 1997.

Students take regular university courses with students from the host country. Most of the curriculum is taught in Spanish; however, there are some courses available in English.

Participants earn regular UT in residence credit. All grades earned for the courses taken are computed into the official UT-Austin GPA, just as they would be for grades earned in courses taken on campus.
