“On behalf of the whole University of Huelva community, we are delighted to welcome you all to our University and city, wishing you a productive academic stay and a rewarding and long-life experience.
It is an enormous pleasure, but also a huge responsibility, to receive students from more than 50 countries and four different continents. You are now part of an internationally rich and diverse student body of over 13,000 students.
The University of Huelva is a place that respects ideas, values diversity of thought and experience and, perhaps most importantly, recognizes that what defines great scholarship is not the easy acceptance of what we already know, but the relentless determination to discover what we still have to learn. Hence our university motto: “Sapere aude”… Dare to know.
So dare to know, and dare to discover also Huelva province with its rich history, superb beaches, nice warm weather, delicious cuisine and very friendly and welcoming people. We sincerely hope to fulfil your expectations by providing you with high quality academic and teaching standards.
My staff and us wish you the very best throughout the year. We look forward to getting to know you better in the months ahead.
Kind regards and best wishes”.
Reyes Alejano Monge, Vicerrector of Internationalization and Mª Teresa Aceytuno Pérez, Head of the International Office
