Bachelor/Master Thesis.

International Students are wellcome to carry out their dissertations (Bacherlor or Master Thesis) at EPI. To do so, your academic coordinator at your home university should let the academic coordinator at EPI know that you would like to do your dissertation at EPI. Then the academic coordinator at EPI will make arrangements with the Esta dirección de correo electrónico está siendo protegida contra los robots de spam.

Q. When should we let the Spanish academic coordinator know that I would like to do my dissertation at EPI? A. If you are coming to EPI for two semesters, then the most natural thing is that you carry out your dissertation during the second semester. Then, you can inform your academic coordinator by mid October. If you are coming only for one semester, then you should inform the academic coordinator as soon as possible, preferably before you arrive in Gijón.




 (Under construction. Pending to add more instructions about how to build your own time table.)

As International Student you can attend any course you like from the whole offer of courses at EPI. However, you must be careful when choosing your courses, as some of them could be incompatible. Why? Because class sessions times may collide.

We strongly recommend our international students to create their own weekly schedule/timetable for the semester containing all class sessions the student plans to attend BEFORE arriving in Gijón. Please, try to fill in this timetable template. Once you arrive in Gijón, go to the International Relations Office to register yourself as an international student at the University of Oviedo, and give them this timetable so they can register you to the groups indicated in that timetable.

Where is the information about the weekly schedule for a given degree? Following any of the previous links ("Academic Offer" section) you will be redirected to a page where you will have access to the degree timetables and the courses syllabus or teaching guides. (See the section with a "Clock" icon).

We know that understanding the timetables is not easy. We would like to help you. Bellow you can find a picture of a time table similar to those that you will be able to download when following the previous links, to which we have added some keys to help you understand it. First of all, you must pay attetion to the course name (abreviated), the type of course, the day of the week, and the class hour.

            Time Table Explanation

 There are four different types of classes:

TE = Theory classes. Black colour

PA = Problem classes. Blue colour

PL = Laboratory/hands on classes. Red colour

TG = Group Tutoring/Mentoring clases. Purple colour

 Those classes can ocurr weekly or not. In case you see one of those classes marked with an "*" or "**" then check the "Particularidades" (comments) table for remarks. For theory classes, the "Particularidades" table will tell you the weeks when those classes will tak place. For PA, PL or TG classes, the "Particularidades" table will tell the sessions when those classes will take place. Then you will have to check the "Weeks Calendar" and the "Sessions Calendar" to find the date. See bellow an example of a "Week Calendar" and a "Sessions Calendar".

            Time Table Explanation


            Sessions Calendar


What things should I take into account in order to create my weekly schedule/timetable?

For every course wyou would like to attend:

1.- Choose the group of theory would like to attend. Then take note of the theory sessions in your timetable template.

2.- Choose a PA group (please note that there could be only one group of PA classes or several groups of PA classes). Then take note of your PA sessions in your timetable template.

3.- PL groups are linked to PA groups. If there is only one PA group, then ALL PL groups are linked to this PA group. However, if there are several PA groups, then you can only choose your PL group among those linked to the PA group you have previously chosen. As a general rule, the PL groups are uniformly divided among the PA groups. So, if there are 2 PA groups (say PA1 and PA2), the first half of PL groups are linked to group PA1, and the second half is linked to group PA2.

For example, for a given course named X, which has 2 PA groups named PA1 and PA2, and 7 PL groups, PL1, PL2, and PL3 groups are only linked to PA1, and PL5, PL6 and PL7 groups are only linked to PA2. PL4 is linked to both PA1 and PA2.

So, if you choose PA1, you can only choose a PL group from PL1, PL2, PL3 or PL4. In this case you CAN NOT choose a PL group from PL5, PL6 nor PL7.

Try to create your own weekly timetable taking into account the previous instructions. Then, once you get to Gijón, the officers at the International Relations Office (ORI) will help you fine tunning it, and will register you at the selected groups.

For a semester or an academic year stay, maybe the best and cheapest option is to rent or to share an apartment with some other students. The city is full of apartments to rent or to share. The Spanish word for apartment is "piso" (flat). You can look for an apartment yourself, or you can ask a real state company help you find one. The following is the data of a real state company (they speak English) that can help you find accommodation in Gijón.

The Spanish National Health Care Service is universal and free for EU citizens. It is organised in three diferent levels of assitance:

First level: There is a network of Health Care Centres spread all over the city. The Spanish name for these centres is "Centro de Salud" (also known as "Centro de Atención Primaria" or "Ambulatorio"). The name for this doctos in Spanish is "Médico de Familia" (family doctor). You can locate here the closest centre to where you live.

Second level: Specialist physicians. Youn can only access this service if you are sent by your family doctor. So you first need to go to your "Centro de Salud" to tell your problem to the family doctor. If she/he considers that she/he cannot help you, she(he will send you to the specialist physician. Tis type of doctors are not inended for casualty or emergencies, but for chronic matters.

Third level: Hospitals. In case of emergency/casualty, ask a taxi to take you to "Hospital de Cabueñes". This is the biggest public hospital in the city (close to the campus). "Hospital de Jove" is also a public hospital in the city, but it is smaller thatn Cabueñes.

"Hospital de Begoña", "Hospital de la Cruz Roja", and "Sanatorio Covadonga" are private hospitals. If you go there, you may have to pay for your treatment even if you are a EU citizen, unless you have a private medic insurance.

Here you can locate all hospitals in Gijón.
