Frequently Asked Questions (Valencia)
I read that students are 40 min away from the university by foot and 20-35 by public transport. Is it our responsibility to provide ourselves with transport money. Is it better to use single tickets or cards? Are there any discounts for tourists/students?
The flights and accommodation are provided, that’s clear. How about meals? Do we have meals at the hostel, at a nearby restaurant? Is the lunch going to be at the university?
As we are going to participate at a worksop involving telecommunications do we need to bring our laptops/tablets or all we will do will be in the university and no additional activities will be done at the hostel (doing research or homework)?
Are we going to have some sightseeing or trips outside Valencia for which we would need additional money (entrances, fees, etc.) and if yes approximately how many (to make some calculations regarding our pocket money)?
As we are coming a day earlier – is there provided accommodation and food for that day or it is on us?
If you have any idea how many people there will be in one room in the hostel?
Are there any rules or regulations regarding our free time (regardless of that we are majors)?
Is tap water drinkable or is it advisable to buy bottled?
As I have travelled mainly in Western-North Europe is it common in Spain the fizzy water or they normally drink still water?
Are weekends free from workshop activities and free for sightseeing and other free time activities? If not what?
