About the Program

Program Description

Join other international students to hone your Spanish skills at the University of Barcelona’s (UB) Estudios Hispánicos language learning center. Intensive Spanish courses are available for all levels of language proficiency. Experience student life at our partner, the University of Barcelona; home to more than 90,000 students, this leading European university is one of Spain's oldest and largest. Enhance your language learning through active engagement with local culture in vibrant Barcelona. No matter which Spanish language level you start at, you’ll gain proficiency in this summer program.

Program Structure

You'll enroll in 1 language course that meets for a total of 80 contact hours/6 credits. You may earn 6 credits (up to 80 contact hours). Classes meet for 5 hours per day, Monday-Thursday.

You'll be automatically registered in your language course. On your first day of class, you'll take a language placement exam to determine final placement. You will be enrolled into your course based on the results of the placement exam. To ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home university 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.

Where You'll Study
