•Travel arrangements
You should begin making travel plans as soon as you receive the confirmation of your reservation. We strongly recommend that students purchase a complete travel insurance to cover all their needs, including medical, accident, baggage loss, delays and personal liability.

The University of Valladolid is not a travel provider, nor is a registered travel agent. Your travel arrangements to and from Spain are subject to the terms and conditions of your travel agency. In the rare event that the program is canceled, the University of Valladolid will refund program fees, but is not responsible for non-refundable airline or other tickets or payments or any similar penalties that may be incurred. It is your responsibility to protect yourself against airline and travel agency cancellation fees.

•Medical insurance
Participants are covered by an insurance policy through the University of Valladolid that provides medical and surgical treatment and prescription drugs in case of an accident or sudden illness.

This insurance has always been reliable and has worked well for most unexpected illnesses or accidents, in the past. It is limited, though, so we recommend that participants have some backup insurance so they can be covered in case of more serious incidents. Please contact our staff for more information.

European students should bring the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) card with them.

•Right of refusal
The University of Valladolid reserves the right to refuse an applicant’s request. Theoretically a rare case and is most likely due to a person’s inability to meet health requirements or the interest of group compatibility.

Once in the field, the program Director reserves the right to expel a participant from the program should that person’s behavior compromise the safety, research objectives and general performance of the group or violate Spanish laws, regulations or customs.
