Intensive Spanish Language - Universidad de Belgrano (UB) - Universidad de Belgrano

Semester students will take between 216 and 228 contact hours and have the opportunity to progress through 2 consecutive levels. For this reason both the Fall and Spring programs are not designed for advanced level Spanish speakers.

Students will participate in courses offered at University of Belgrano's language department that focus on Spanish grammar, conversation, and culture. Students will be in class with other international students.

All students must take a Spanish language placement exam prior to arrival in Buenos Aires. 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 Argentina having completed less than one year of college-level Spanish will likely place into beginning level. Students who arrive in Argentina having completed one full year of college-level Spanish will likely place into the intermediate-level courses.

Gap students are also eligible for this program.

Advanced level students should consider Latin American Studies or the Courses with Locals programs.

Courses with Locals in Multiple Disciplines - Universidad de Belgrano (UB) - Universidad de Belgrano

Students at the high advanced level of the Spanish language (5 or more semesters of college-level Spanish) will take courses with local students at the University of Belgrano. Students will have an academic orientation before making their final course selections at the University of Belgrano.

Students have the opportunity to enroll in any course from the regular course listing at the Universidad de Belgrano. These courses will be taken alongside Argentine students and are taught by Argentine faculty. Students are also able to enroll in courses offered in the Latin American Studies program (as listed under the Semester/Year 2 programs) but they must complete one course with local students throughout the semester. The courses from the Latin American Studies program are specifically designed for foreign students and the language of instruction is Spanish English and classes are taken alongside international students.

Students who do not wish to enroll in at least one course with local students must switch to the Latin American Studies program.

*Please be aware that some courses with Argentine students are offered only during specific semesters, and often change due to course schedule conflicts, enrollment, etc. While ISA makes every effort to maintain a current course list on the ISA website, course enrollment cannot be guaranteed until students arrive onsite. If you must take specific courses with locals for graduation, please contact your Site Specialist to check on the likelihood that they will be offered during your specific term abroad.

Students may also add an Intensive Month to a Semester/Year program. Contact the ISA office for further details.
