This program accommodates students of all levels of Spanish proficiency. The curriculum includes courses in grammar, communicative skills and Spanish culture, as well as business and economics courses in English. Courses are taught by host university faculty at the Universidad Internacional Menéndez Pelayo.
For beginning, intermediate, and advanced-level Spanish speakers. All students must take a Spanish language placement exam upon arrival in Sevilla. 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 less than one year of college-level Spanish will likely place into beginning level courses. Students who arrive in Spain having completed one full year of college-level Spanish will likely place into the intermediate level courses. Students who arrive in Spain having completed two years of college-level Spanish will likely place into advanced level courses.
Students are in class with international students, the majority of whom are ISA students.
Gap Year students are also eligible for this program. For more information, click.
Advanced level Spanish speakers may choose to add on a Two-Week Intensive Spanish Language course for an additional fee. Students must have completed at least 4 semesters, 6 quarters, or the equivalent of college-level Spanish prior to enrolling. The Intensive Spanish Language course consists of 45 hours of advanced-level Spanish language instruction. Please note that adding this course will alter your program dates and require you to arrive earlier to Spain. You can add this additional program when submitting your online application, or by emailing your ISA Program Manager if you have already submitted one. For more information, click.
Students must have a minimum grade point average of 2.50.
