INTERNATIONAL STUDENT SERVICES

Enjoy your Gasma experience

Our international student body continues to grow. With students of more than 70 nationalities, one of our biggest challenges is to make you feel at home. To provide you with the best support, our university has created the Hospitality Package, a series of services aimed at foreign students who learn cooking and management with us. Take advantage of them and enjoy your Gasma experience to the fullest!

HOSPITALITY PACKAGE

Do you need help with the arrangements prior to your arrival in Spain as an international student? Don’t worry, our International Admissions Office has put together this package of exclusive services that will smooth the way for you. You’ll see how easy it is to settle into your new home!

But there’s more: do you need a Spanish phone number? Do you need to be picked up at the airport or train station upon arrival? Would you like to have health insurance during the first months of your stay?

Discover all the services we offer before you move to Spain.

ASSISTANCE IN FINDING ACCOMMODATION

From the Hospitality service, we help you to find accommodation: we put you in contact with our range of suppliers to evaluate the options that interest you the most. There are rooms in university residences or shared apartments in Castellón; or if you prefer, you can choose to live alone in your own apartment.

OPENING A BANK ACCOUNT IN SPAIN

The opening of a bank account is essential for many transactions (registering services such as Internet, electricity, water, etc.). Como alumno, deberás domiciliar tus pagos (de la universidad, el alquiler, etc.) y, de paso, podrás disponer de una tarjeta de débito. Te pondremos en contacto con nuestro banco colaborador para gestionar tu nueva cuenta.

SUPPORT IN THE MANAGEMENT OF ACADEMIC DOCUMENTATION

To enroll in the university, you must obtain documents proving the validity of your baccalaureate or equivalent studies in your country of origin. This document is the Credential for European students and other countries with an agreement, and the Homologation for the rest. We help you to collect all the necessary documentation for this procedure. Please note that the cost of the homologation fee is to be paid by the student.

MANAGEMENT OF RESIDENCY DOCUMENTATION

In order to reside legally in Spain, it is necessary to obtain the NIE (Foreigner’s Identification Number) and/or TIE (Foreigner’s Identity Card) for non-EU students. We take care of the management of the necessary documentation that you have previously provided us and we accompany you in person to the Immigration Office. We also assist you with any other instance necessary to comply with current regulations.

PICK-UP AND ACCOMMODATION FOR THE FIRST NIGHT

We offer you the possibility of being picked up by a cab upon arrival at the airport in Valencia or Castellón or at the train or bus station in Valencia or Castellón, and taken to a hotel in Castellón, where you have a single room reserved in your name for the first night of your stay.

TOURIST INFORMATION, LEISURE AND CULTURE

We will also provide you with tourist information about the city and province of Castellón: this way you can start to familiarize yourself with your new surroundings.

LANGUAGE COURSES

After your registration (reservation and enrollment), you will have access to an online platform to learn and practice Spanish (or another language, if you already speak Spanish). You will also be able to participate in an on-site Spanish course during the summer, organized by levels.

TRANSPORT

When you arrive, we will provide you with a transportation card to travel by bus or streetcar during your first days in Castellón.

MOBILE TELEPHONY

We will provide you with a prepaid SIM card that will allow you to talk and surf the Internet right from the start.
