You can stay longer as long as there is an academic justification, authorised by your own university and for which it sends us this authorisation by mail, fax or e-mail. Remember, though, that during the months of July, August and September there is no regular teaching activity at the university.
Paperwork - Attendance Certificate
Before going back to your country, remember to collect your Certificate of Attendance.
Please bear in mind that:
- The ORI will not sign any Certificate of Attendance including a date earlier than the end of the stay
- Stays will only be certified till July 15 maximum
- Stays after July 15 will only be certified after request of the Home University to the ORI
If your own university asks you for an Attendance Certificate, The ORI can prepare one for you (using the dates for arrival and departure that you put on your form at the beginning of your stay here), which will show officially that you have completed your stay at the UC. Except for this document, we do not require you to do anything else.
The Attendance Certificate is a document which justifies a student’s stay at the UC. The maximum length of this period is from September to June/July. Certificates will not include the month of August, since there is no academic activity during the summer, unless the student has received express written authorisation to stay during this period and which document is duly signed by the issuing university.
Transcript of Records
The ORI automatically sends off your academic results, so it is not necessary for you to ask for them. These certificates are sent out in duplicate, one copy going to your home address and the other to your own university. Those students who are at the UC only for the first semester may go to the ORI to request that the Transcript of Records be sent during the month of March. In all other cases, remember that, due to the way in which the grade lists are sent in at the UC, your grades will not reach your university before the month of August. Your university should keep in mind the fact that, because of the above, no claims of any kind can be dealt with during the month of July.
