My stay at the University of Almeria

At the begining


You must make an appointment with the International Relations Office. This appointment will be held in the International Relations Office, which is located at the PITA building. We will give you personal attention checking whether your documents are correct. We will also provide you with the relevant information about your stay at our University.

To make an appointment you have to follow these steps:

- Appointment at the International Office.
- You will have two options to make an appointment: as a UAL student or teaching staff (with your personal login and password), or external access (with your ID). If you choose the second option, you must put pad (hashtag) # before the ID number.
- Select the International Relations Office (International Students Reception)
- Select the day and time you would like to have your appointment. Make sure you are in Spain to be able to attend.


International students arriving at UAL should have health insurance coverage contains the following contingencies:

  • Medical or healthcare
  • Repatriation or transfer of injured or ill persons
  • Repatriation or transfer of the deceased insured
  • Personal accident insurance

European students who has as well the European Health Insurance Card (bear in mind that a private insurance is mandatory) would go to the nearest medical centre and fill in a form of temporary register within the health system. You need to have an address and you will be assigned a doctor after finishing this procedure.

ISEP students must purchase the medical insurance provided by ISEP CENTRAL before arrival
