This program focuses on Spanish grammar, conversation, and culture, and is designed for students at all levels who want to study abroad in Madrid. Each student’s Spanish level is determined by a placement exam administered upon arrival by the University Complutense of Madrid. The program operates on a quarter schedule and offers 120 contact hours per quarter term, though students may elect to take up to 180 contact hours per term (for an additional fee). Academic year students will take a placement exam each semester.

CULTURE ELECTIVE OPTIONS

The cultural lectures are offered in either Spanish or English. Beginning level Spanish speakers who wish to take additional hours are encouraged to choose from the Spanish grammar courses rather than the cultural lectures.

TRANSCRIPTS

API students will receive a transcript from the Complutense University of Madrid upon completion of their program.
