On February 18 and 19, our administrative and academic staff will be available to give advice about our courses, services and the opportunities within the reach of international students at University CEU Cardenal Herrera…will you be coming? 😉
1 – GETTING READY FOR OUR OPEN DAYS
Q. Do I need to book to attend the Open Days?

Airlines like Ryanair, Iberia, Lufthansa, EasyJet or Air France have direct flights from Valencia to Rome, London, Paris or Frankfurt, among other cities. If you arrive by train, you can reach Valencia from Madrid in just 90 minutes using the high-speed train (AVE).
As for accommodation, we do not provide housing for visitors. Nevertheless, Valencia is full of options that will suit every budget; whether you are looking for a hotel, an apartment or a hostel, we are sure you will find the perfect place to stay in! Visit the official site of Turisvalencia and explore the establishments in the city that offer online booking. Take into account when booking your hotel that metro line 1 (yellow line) is the one that will take you directly to the university!
