THESE REGULATIONS APPLY TO ALL STUDENTS ENROLLED IN
CLM ABROAD PROGRAMS. IT IS THE STUDENTS' RESPONSIBILITY TO
UNDERSTAND AND COMPLY WITH THEM. QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS SHOULD
BE DIRECTED TO THE STUDY ABROAD COORDINATOR.
Age and Previous Studies
Students must be at least 18 years old and have finished
high school or compulsory secondary education.
Acceptance, Registration and Payment
Complete applications (including
all supporting documents) will be reviewed on a rolling basis
and must be received by email (or postmarked if sent by regular
mail) by the corresponding application deadline. Incomplete
applications will not be reviewed.
Notification of acceptance into
the program will be sent to the student by email within a
week of receiving the complete application along with instructions
for payment of the €500 program deposit.
Upon payment of the €500 deposit,
official enrolment certificates required in the Spanish student
visa application will be sent to the student by email.
The remainder of the program fee
is due by the date of the student's Spanish language level
Both payments should be made in
euros by bank transfer to our current account and made payable
to the Centro de Lenguas Modernas. The student's name should
be clearly indicated on this transfer. The CLM will only recognise
the amount received as payment therefore students must cover
any additional bank charges incurred. Payment can also be
made over the phone by credit card. Online
payment options will be available soon.
Payment must be made in euros by bank transfer to our current account:
held at Caja Rural Granada, Office Granada Urbana 15, Shopping Center Neptuno, Arabial, CP 18004, Granada, Spain
and made payable to the Centro de Lenguas Modernas. CLM will only recognise as payment the amount received so students must meet any bank charges incurred. It is also possible to pay over phone with a credit card ((+34) 958215660).
The total fee of the program must be paid before the student
takes the level test. Without full payment, students cannot
begin their classes.
In the case of programs that involve content courses, the
chosen subjects and groups should be clearly marked on the
Course Form in order to guarantee consideration for placement
in those specific subjects and groups. Students can consult
the timetable published on the CLM web site for different
group options (CEH and CLCE only).
Students will take a compulsory level test on the day specified
in the course calendar.
For some courses (CEH, CLCE, CILYC) students are required
to have a certain command of the language which they must
demonstrate in the level test otherwise they will not be able
to enrol in the chosen course.
Those students who do not pass the level test for the Hispanic
Studies Course or the Spanish Language and Culture Course
may enrol in a different course.
In CEH and CLCE, students have five days starting from the
first day of the course to make any necessary changes to their
enrolment. In the case of CILE and CILYC, the dates for any
changes are as follows: 40 hrs course: first two days; 60
hrs course: first three days; 80 hrs course: first four days.
In the CELE course, students have one week to change.
N.B. If changes to enrolment in the Hispanic Studies Course
or the Spanish Language and Culture Course mean that students
are registered for fewer than four subjects, these subjects
will be charged as individual subjects.
Students who have attended less than 80% of classes will
not be entitled to take the final exam. The final exams for
subjects in the Hispanic Studies Course or the Spanish Language
and Culture Course will take place in the final week of the
course, in line with the official CLM calendar drawn up by
the Director's Office. During the exam week there are no classes. Exams may not be taken on any other date. The deadline
for requesting revision of exams and grades is the last working
day of the academic year. The final exam for CILE and CILYC
takes place on the penultimate day of the course.
CLM is closed on Saturdays and Sundays. On national, regional
and local public holidays, no classes will be taught and the
hours will not be made up.
Grades and Credits
It is the student's responsibility to:
1.- Confirm that his/her home institution will award credit for courses successfully completed at the CLM/UGR.
2.- Understand how the home institution interprets CLM/UGR grades.
This example scale of grade equivalencies is suggested by the University
of Granada but the final interpretation will be determined
by the university awarding the credits.

- PROGRAM DEPOSIT: Only when a course or level is
cancelled by CLM will the student be eligible for reimbursement
or be offered the possibility of transferring this fee to
another course programmed in the same academic year. Refusal
of a visa or equivalent application is not considered a valid
reason for reimbursement. However, in this case the fee may
be transferred to another program offered within a year from
the original start date.
- PROGRAM FEE: The program fee will only be reimbursed
in exceptional circumstances and, provided that the student
presents a written request together with the necessary documents
justifying cancellation during the first week of the course.
