Salamanca Spain

Program Description:

 The intensive Spanish language and culture courses that the Pontifical University of Salamanca offers combine a complete and rigorous academic program together with a wide range of cultural activities.
The courses, that are given in the historic building of the Royal College of the Society of Jesus (Colegio Real de la Compañía de Jesús - a building of the XVII century), try to immerse the student not only in the Spanish language but also in the culture. For this reason the daily classes, given by qualified teachers with experience, are combined with all sorts of activities. Excursions, tours and language exchanges with Spanish speakers help the foreign students feel fully integrated in the university atmosphere.

In the academic program the distribution of students is carried out in small groups that can always count on the help of teachers specialized in the teaching of Spanish. The duration of the courses, organized according to the level of the students, can be from two weeks up to six months.

Studying Spanish in Salamanca allows foreign students to learn a language in an ideal setting: in the home of an ever more universal language, enjoying unforgettable experiences that make what is learned in the daily classes easily assimilated.

Passports and Visas:

A valid passport is required for all international travel. Its best to apply for a passport now as processing times may vary. The UCIE is an official US Passport Center and we can help you with your photo and passport processing needs.  See here for more information.

Some study abroad destinations will require you to obtain a visa.  A visa is permission given to you by your host country to allow you to enter the country for a specific amount of time.  In order to obtain country-specific visa instructions and resources, refer to your host country’s embassy web page. One way to access this information is via the US Department of State’s webpage.

The UCIE is happy to guide you to possible resources about visas for study abroad. Although, applying for the necessary visa for travel is the responsibility of the individual traveler. Entry requirements change frequently and we advise you to pay close attention to consular updates. It is your responsibility to know and address the requirements for your host study abroad destination.
