Academic Organization

As International Student you can attend any course you like from the whole offer of courses at EPI. However, you must be careful when choosing your courses, as some of them could be incompatible. Why? Because class sessions times may collide.

We strongly recommend our international students to create their own weekly schedule/timetable for the semester containing all class sessions the student plans to attend BEFORE arriving in Gijón. Please, try to fill in this timetable template. Once you arrive in Gijón, go to the International Relations Office to register yourself as an international student at the University of Oviedo, and give them this timetable so they can register you to the groups indicated in that timetable.

Where is the information about the weekly schedule for a given degree? Following any of the previous links ("Academic Offer" section) you will be redirected to a page where you will have access to the degree timetables and the courses syllabus or teaching guides. (See the section with a "Clock" icon).

We know that understanding the timetables is not easy. We would like to help you. Bellow you can find a picture of a time table similar to those that you will be able to download when following the previous links, to which we have added some keys to help you understand it. First of all, you must pay attetion to the course name (abreviated), the type of course, the day of the week, and the class hour.

Timetable explanation

There are four different types of classes:

  • TE = Theory classes. Black colour
  • PA = Problem classes. Blue colour
  • PL = Laboratory/hands on classes. Red colour
  • TG = Group Tutoring/Mentoring clases. Purple colour

Those classes can ocurr weekly or not. In case you see one of those classes marked with an "*" or "**" then check the "Particularidades" (comments) table for remarks. For theory classes, the "Particularidades" table will tell you the weeks when those classes will tak place. For PA, PL or TG classes, the "Particularidades" table will tell the sessions when those classes will take place. Then you will have to check the "Weeks Calendar" and the "Sessions Calendar" to find the date. See bellow an example of a "Week Calendar" and a "Sessions Calendar".
