Join students from across Spain, Europe, and the world as you take classes in a range of subjects, from science, economics, business, and arts to humanities, health sciences, and education. All elective courses are taught in English. You’ll also improve your language proficiency by taking a Spanish language course at your level, from beginner to advanced. This program’s flexibility allows you to take courses toward your major, choose elective courses in your area of academic or personal interest, and improve your Spanish language skills.
Each semester, you’ll enroll in 1 Spanish language or culture course and 3 English elective courses. Language/culture courses meet for 60 contact hours/4 credits, and English elective courses meet for 45-60 contact hours/2-3 credits. You may earn 12-13 credits (up to 240 contact hours) per semester; academic year students may earn 24-26 credits (up to 480 contact hours).
Language/culture courses meet 2 times per week; schedules for elective courses vary and will be finalized during your first week on-site. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays.
Before you leave for Alicante, you will select your preferred courses and take a language placement exam. You'll be enrolled into courses based on availability. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. To ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home school pre-approve courses at several levels before you leave for Spain. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.
Located on one of Spain’s most attractive campuses, the University of Alicante allows you to attend class and activities with Spanish and other international students for an integrated experience. This innovative and dynamic public university offers modern buildings, green areas, sports facilities, a 24-hour library, a museum, and commercial galleries.
When in Alicante, you can choose CEA housing or arrange your own independent housing. CEA housing assignments are based on availability and confirmation date; we make every effort to match your housing requests, but we can’t guarantee housing preferences.
