The International Science Week of the University of Zaragoza (ISWZ) is a free program of activities aimed at letting foreign science students know the Faculty of Science, the university and the city of Zaragoza. Zaragoza is the fifth city in Spain by population and it is a safe, affordable and lively city. The University of Zaragoza, founded in 1582, is one of the largest universities in Spain. It is ranked among the 200 best universities in the world for Natural Sciences "> The ISWZ will be held at the University of Zaragoza, from July 1st to July 6th, 2018. It includes presentations, visits to labs and research institutes, meetings with researchers, science related activities, tours of the city and an excursion to the Pyrenees. All the activities will be directed by local professors and researchers. Local students will also participate in the activities and will show you the best of Zaragoza. This will be the second edition of ISWZ. Last year's edition, which gathered students from 9 different countries, was a great success, obtaining a score of 4.73 (out of 5) in an anonymous survey filled by the participants. You can see the details of the survey at the top of this page. 



Participation in the ISWZ is free: neither tuition fees nor accommodation charges apply. The number of foreign students to be admitted is 15. If you want to be one of them, you must be between 18 and 25 years old at the time of the event, and be enrolled in a BSc or MSc related to Natural Sciences (including Geology, Physics, Chemistry, Biotechnology, Optics…) or Mathematics at any university having an exchange agreement with the University of Zaragoza in any field. If you do not know if your university has an agreement with us, please, send us an email.

The activities will be conducted in English and Spanish, so you need some knowledge of either of the languages to enjoy them (a minimum B-1 level in either of the two languages is recommended).



Since the number of participants is limited, an admission procedure is carried out to choose 15 students among all applicants. In order to apply, you must fill the Registration form and include the following:

- Scanned copy of your passport or National Identity Card

- Proof of enrollment in your BSc/MSc

- A recommendation letter by a professor or Erasmus coordinator of your university

- A short video (2 minutes max) or a presentation letter either in English or in Spanish, explaining why you want to participate in the International Week

The deadline for applications is May 6th. We will send you an email confirming that we have received your application. By May 10th, you will get another email communicating whether you have been admitted in the Week. If you are admitted, you will need to confirm your participation by May 31st, and send us your travel plan, together with a copy of the flight tickets from your country to Spain.
