You might have seen plenty of new faces around the campus this week with the arrival of 36 international students have come to Spain to study with us at USJ during the second semester. As well as European Erasmus+ students from Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Greece, Belgium, Portugal, Romania, Austria, Lithuania, Turkey and Ukraine, we have also welcomed students from Mexico and Brazil, making a total of almost 100 international exchange students for the 2016-2017 academic year.

During their welcome sessions, the new exchange students have been attending workshops and information sessions organised by different student services and last night had the opportunity to try out the local cuisine on the ‘Tapas Tour’ organised by International Relations Unit. Representatives from the USJ Student Association have also been accompanying their new colleagues and helping out finding accommodation.

We have informed our new international students that we expect the weather in Zaragoza to have changed by the end of their stay!
