Students services

​Advice in Time

The University of Cantabria is not content merely to teach its students. Aware of what the time at university means for the student’s personal and professional development, the University provides an academic and psychological guidance service, coordinated by the UC Orientation System (SOUCAN). The organisation of practical workshops on study techniques and anxiety control prior to examinations, assistance for students with integration difficulties, and the coordination of a tutoring network in the centres are only some of the activities organised by this service connected to the University Information Network.

A Foot in the Job Market

Education at the University of Cantabria aims to make it easier for students to enter the job market. Aware of the need for interaction with the business world in this challenging task, the University has signed more than 1,200 agreements with companies and institutions from Spain and other European countries. This is channelled through the Employment Orientation and Information Centre (COIE). The centre is responsible for coordinating placement programmes in both private enterprises and public institutions that aim to provide the student with professional experience. Over 2,200 students from the University take part in these programmes each year. The COIE also offers a student curriculum vitae data-base service for companies, and provides an information service on job vacancies, regulations and incentives for the setting up of companies and self-employment and post-graduate training.
