Classes at EUPT are organized in small groups. You will find theoretical and practical lessons with 10, 20 or 30 students per class (in several courses even less). This allows us to offer personalized attention to each of our students. In addition, each professor has several office hours per week for individualized tutoring. Students can go to the professor's office and have an individual session to solve their doubts. Tutoring sessions/office hours are conducted in English in the English-friedly subjects/modules.

Teruel, city of love

Do you know Romeo and Juliet? A fascinating story… but they were only in Shakespire’s mind! However, in Teruel, we have the true and most vibrant love story: the leyend of the LOVERS OF TERUEL. Isabel and Diego, two young people who lived in medieval times, fell madly in love… But love was not so easy at that time: so exciting and so tragic. Do you want to know more? Look at here
Lovers of Teruel have such importance in the local culture that they have a fantastic mausoleum.

Lovers of teruel
People from Teruel love their lovers. They like them so much that every year, in February, the entire city turns into a medieval village. Everyone wears medieval costumes. The true love story of Isabel and Diego is performed live. Anyone can participate in the performance. Thousands of visitors come to Teruel and the entire city explodes into a celebration of love.  Look at this video

Teruel, city of celebrations

An important part of an international mobility is to live and join the local festivals

Do you know that Teruel has one of the festivals in Spain that attracts the most young people? It is the festival of the “Ángel Custodio”, more popularly known as “Vaquillas”. Young people from all over Spain come to Teruel to live intensely for four days and four nights. It all begins with placing the symbol of the celebration (a red scarf) on the neck of the city icon (a sculpture of a small bull, called "Torico"). All participants wear a white t-shirt that turns purple due to the tons of wine that are thrown into the air. Look at this video.
