Why Choose Valencia?

Apart from Valencia being the first choice for Erasmus students, it has an increasing international student population, but not just because of its 2,000 years of history or rich culture. It is also the third largest city in Spain and boasts more than 300 sunny days per year, little wonder then that it is also referred to as the City of Light. Along with its privileged location featuring no less than 500 km of beautiful coastline, 45 museums and 7 km of beach, it plays host to 1,700 restaurants and tapas bars, enough for even the most ardent food enthusiasts.

In terms of rankings, CEU Cardenal Herrera University is among the top four Spanish private universities in Research. Every March the city gets ready to welcome the spring. The streets fill up with joy and the hustle and bustle of the Fallas festival, the upmost expression of the merger of tradition, satire, art and sentimentality for one’s homeland. The Valencian people live their most international fiesta to the maximum and their kind and natural character invites you to visit the city and join in this fiesta, where everything that is bad is burnt and reborn from the ashes to welcome a new season.
