What's included, step
by step, throughout the program
Students will receive individualized guidance from the highly
qualified and attentive student services professionals at
the CLM throughout your program here, starting with the application
process and extending beyond your return home.
Process: Please contact us directly with any questions
that arise as you fill out your application. We will be
happy to assist you and will respond as promptly as possible.
Notification of acceptance will be sent by email within
a week of receiving your complete application (including
all required forms).
Application Fee: The CLM
has decided to waive our application fee for programs throughout
the academic year 2014-15 due to the increase in
the student visa application fee charged by the Spanish
Embassy and Consulates.
Visa: The visa application
process can be long and complicated. Be sure to get started
as soon as possible. Students who plan to be in Spain for
more than 90 days must have a student visa in order to enter
the country. A student visa cannot be obtained from within
Spain. Upon paying your program deposit, the CLM will mail
you the official enrolment certificates which are required
by the Spanish Embassy and Consulates as part of your visa
application. Applying early to your CLM Study Abroad Program
will help ensure that you have plenty of time to obtain
your student visa well before your expected departure for
Orientation: A comprehensive
orientation program will be provided for you including:
group meetings covering health, safety and emergency plans,
cultural norms and expectations, academic policies and course
registrations; and walking tours throughout Granada
to help you get your bearings; a complete explanation of the CLM facilities and services.
Handbook: The CLM will provide
you with a student handbook full of important information
that you can reference throughout your program, including
24-hour contact information in the event of an emergency.
Ongoing advising and support:
The coordinator of the CLM Study Abroad Program and a team
of dedicated student services staff will be available to
assist you throughout your stay in Granada. Direct contact
will be maintained with your Study Abroad Advisor and on-site
academic advising will be provided in consultation with
your home school officials.
Grade Certificates: Upon
the successful completion of your program, an official Centro
de Lenguas Modernas certificate recording your classes,
contact hours and grades will be issued and delivered directly
to your home institution. The coordinator of the CLM Study
Abroad Program will work closely with your home school to
ensure this correspondence takes place in a smooth and timely
manner. It is each student's responsibility to confirm that his/her home schhol will award credit for courses successfully completed at the CLM/UGR.
HOUSING WITH A SPANISH FAMILY
All CLM Study Abroad Programs include full-board accommodation
with a Spanish family. Students share a double room in a local
home where three meals a day (everyday), laundry service once
a week, internet and utilities are all included. Students
may opt out of the included accommodations and secure their
own independent housing. See our Accommodations
page for full details.
Students will be covered by private
medical insurance throughout the duration of their CLM
Study Abroad Programs. The policy provides substantial coverage
for medical attention, surgery and hospitalizations.
Students enrolled in the Hispanic Studies Program can choose
to complete an internship in a local company,
an educational institution or a volunteering organization
as part of their academic program.
Students enrolled in the
Spanish Language and Culture Program have the option to complete
an internship in an educational institution. You must secure
the necessary approval from your home institution in order
to participate in an internship course, which must further
specify whether or not credit will be awarded for the course by your home institution.
