Valladolid is the capital of the Valladolid province, and is in the centre of the Castile-Leon region in Spain. Valladolid is a reasonably large, industrial city 200km northwest of Madrid and has a Mediterranean climate – so you can expect to experience hot summers, and cool and windy winters due to its altitude and inland location. Universidad de Valladolid has four campuses in the cities of Valladolid, Palencia, Segovia and Soria and as a Translation going on exchange, you will be based at the Valladolid campus. The International Relations office can advise students on accommodation, and students are recommended to book their accommodation online before the deadline if they want a room on campus. Alternatively, there are shared apartments and homestay options available.
