Visa: The requirements to study abroad in a foreign country vary depending on the country you originate from and the duration of your stay abroad. In the case that you must apply for a student visa, the process can be long and tedious, therefore we recommend that you begin this process as soon as possible, given that it is very complicated to try and finalize and receive the visa once abroad. Once the program deposit has been paid you will receive the enrollment documents that must be submitted with your visa application. Familiarizing yourself with the visa application process and applying to CLM Study Abroad Program as early as possible will help ensure that you have plenty of time to obtain your student visa well before your expected departure to Granada!

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.
