This semester option to study alongside Spanish university students provides the student an opportunity to choose from over 900 courses through a wide variety of disciplines. It is important to review the following check list to determine if this is the appropriate program for your student.

Advisor check list for Integrated study program:

  • Faculty and advisors must properly assess the language proficiency of students who are considering this option in order to successfully complete courses within their line of study alongside their Spanish counterparts in a Spanish university, US students must have ADVANCED or SUPERIOR proficiency in the Spanish language.
  • Faculty and advisors should determine any necessary courses that the student must take in order to fulfil the desired credit requirements in their specific course of study.
  • Contact T&E to work with our knowledgeable and experienced staff to determine equivalent courses at the host institutionT&E staff will then provide appropriate syllabi and course descriptions for those courses and provide a tentative schedule of classes (days and times). The university offers over 900 courses from which to choose.
Combined Modular / Integrated: 

The combined Modular and Integrated programs allows students to enroll in the Modular program while taking one (1) or two (2) courses from the Integrated program. With this option, students will enroll in the Modular program and take Spanish language and cultural immersion courses alongside other international students while being allowed the opportunity to take some courses with Spaniards in the general university course offerings.

The student and advisor would need to work closely with T&E staff to determine the best course options that fit the students’ needs. They must also arrange a schedule that works for both the Modular and Integrated courses that are chosen to ensure that no overlaps or conflicts exist. Please contact T&E at info@travelandeducation.org or 1-866-559-0235 with any questions you may have concerning this option.
