Universidad de Santiago de Compostela Summer Spanish Language Courses

About the Program

This program offers the opportunity to study Spanish in Spain for as few as two to as many as fifteen weeks in the summer. Students are given a language placement test upon arrival in Spain and are placed in the appropriate course level. For this reason, the year level obtained cannot be guaranteed in advance.

Final program details will be published by the partner institution that manages this program and are generally updated on their program webpage. However, you must apply through Go Global to be considered for this program and ensure you follow the appropriate transfer credit process.
