Minimum Admissions Prerequisites

There is no language requirement for this program. No student, regardless of language level, will be required to enroll in Spanish language. However, it is strongly encouraged that students enroll in language in order to fully immerse themselves in the language and culture of the area.

Students at the high intermediate level (B1) or above will also have the opportunity to enroll in courses taught in Spanish pending the official UB CETT language placement exam.
All students must take an online Spanish language placement exam before arrival in Barcelona. The exam will indicate each student's language proficiency level, and will determine the courses in which the student is eligible to enroll. Students who arrive in Spain having completed one full year of college-level Spanish (or the equivalent) will likely place into the intermediate level courses. Students who arrive in Spain having completed two years of college-level Spanish (or the equivalent) will likely place into the advanced level courses.
