To confirm your attendance, you will need to submit your tuition deposit through your admissions portal.
Passport and Visa information
All students on the Valencia campus need a student visa unless they are a citizen or legal resident of the European Union, Norway, Liechtenstein, Iceland, or Switzerland. It is recommended that you have your passport ready at least four months before your program start date so you can apply for a visa. It can take several months to prepare your visa application and get your visa, so it is important that start the process as soon as possible. Instructions on applying for a visa will be posted shortly. Please email email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns.

As a Livensa resident, it is important to note that a security deposit of €250 is required from you in August before move-in. This deposit is refundable provided that everything is in the same condition as when you first received it. Deposited students can expect to receive a housing preference form via email in April. This form will allow students to specify their preferred room type, request a particular roommate, or take a personality test to find a compatible roommate match.
All undergraduate students are required to attend orientation, on the Valencia Campus. Sessions will be designed to introduce you to everything that Berklee’s campus in Spain has to offer. These sessions are your first chance to meet your classmates, faculty, support staff, and the rest of the campus community.
