Intensive Spanish Language

The Intensive Spanish Language Courses (CILE) are designed for those students who wish to start learning or improve their Spanish during a short stay in Granada or in preparation for a subsequent course of study.  We highly recommend that you take a CILE class in September or January if your goal is to advance into the Hispanic Studies program and it has been a while since your last Spanish class! 

CILE classes are taught at every level from A1 to C1 (CLM Level 1-Beginners to CLM Level 8-Superior).  An essentially communicative approach is followed in these courses along with the use of the most up-to-date audio-visual technology.  The average number of students per class is 12. 

Hispanic Studies

The Hispanic Studies program is appropriate for advanced students who wish to complement their study of the Spanish language with content courses in culture, history, economics, politics, art history, etc.  The program offers a wide variety of subjects taught by expert faculty members from the University of Granada. 

Students in the Hispanic Studies program may complete an internship at a local company, educational institution or volunteering organization. Students should check with their home universities regarding whether or not they can earn credit for this internship course.

During the spring semester only, students in the Hispanic Studies program may also enrol in one or two classes at the other Schools of the University of Granada. 

* Students enrolled in UGR classes must remain in Granada through the end of the Spanish semester in order to take their final exams as scheduled.  The exam period generally takes place from mid-June to early July.  The program price will be increased accordingly. 

Students must place into level B2.2 (CLM Level 7-Upper Advanced) or have passed B2.1 (CLM Level 6-Advanced) in order to enrol in this program.  As a general guideline, students who have taken approximately 5-6 semesters of college-level Spanish will place into Hispanic Studies.  Students must have a high command of the Spanish language in order to succeed in these classes.
