Madrid, 9th January 2017.- UNIPLACES and the Compostela Group have signed a collaboration in order to improve the information on international students’ accommodation, as well as to promote and support of each other’s activities.
Next month, the first collaboration will take place through the Uniplaces Scholarship. Launched in March, this initiative aims to grant 15 students giving free accommodation for a semester. The scholarship contest will be launched in March and will count with the CGU support to spread the reach and help as many students as possible.
