How to study in English

To study in English, the first step is to apply for admission to the degree that interests you. In the application you needn’t indicate the language in which you will study. Then, once you admitted, you should make enrollment in first year courses. It’s then when you can choose the groups taught in English.

In addition, throughout the first year you must prove that you own a B2 level of English. For this you have two options:

  • Submit one of the official certificates accepted.
  • Pass a test.

If you haven’t established your level after the first year and you haven’t surpassed more than 36 credits in English, the following year you must register the group in Spanish.

It’s important that you enroll on the day and time that we have assigned you based on your note. The sooner you enroll more chances of choosing the groups.

If you’re an international student and come from a country whose official language isn’t Spanish, you’ll have the guaranteed place in groups in English during the first two years.
