Advanced/superior level students who want to study abroad in Madrid may take up to 5 courses with Spaniards through API at Universidad Nebrija’s main campus or it’s second campus located on the outskirts of Madrid. Campus Dehesa de la Villa is within the city of Madrid, while Campus de Berzosa in on the outskirts of Madrid. Students will only be able to choose classes from one area of study and one campus – i.e. mixing of subjects or campuses is not possible.
The early start fall semester begins with an optional* intensive two-week Spanish language course for 3 semester credits. Students then choose 4 or 5 classes (at least one has to be in Spanish) for a total of 12-18 semester credits for the Fall.
*Optional only for B2 and higher levels. Students that take the placement test before arrival (test conducted by Universidad Nebrija) and are placed in levels below B2 are required to take the intensive, early start programs.
