These are activities aimed at first-year students (undergraduate and postgraduate) to welcome them and show them how university life works and how it is organised. The Welcome Days take place on the first day of the academic year, at each of the UPV centres.
When a student enters university for the first time, they face one of the biggest challenges of their student life. For this reason, the UPV accompanies its students in this adaptation process with the Welcome Days and the University Tutorial Action Plan (PATU), two specific projects for first-year students included in theComprehensive Student Support Plan (PIAE+), a global initiative for students in any UPV Degree, Master's or Doctoral course.
The Welcome Days include the following activities:
The Comprehensive Student Support Plan (PIAE+) reaffirms students as an essential objective of the UPV, and ensures their comprehensive training, guaranteeing excellence, the achievement of their maximum potential and their incorporation into the labour market.
The PIAE+ is a plan designed to listen to students and offer them personal support and accompaniment throughout their university career to boost their academic performance; to reinforce values; to stimulate entrepreneurship, innovation and transfer, and equip them with sufficient competences and skills to chart a career path in accordance with their tastes and preferences and also with the demands of today's society.
