This course option is the best alternative for those who want to start university in our country, and one of the most rewarding and interesting ways to experience the local culture. Following a placement test, the coordinators will indicate what is the best group to strengthen your Spanish, the goal being as effective and successful an integration in your career course as possible.

The classes will help you develop your communication skills in Spanish and also allow you to dive into relevant aspects of the River Plate Spanish, traditions, habits, social life, culture and politics. Thus, your exchange experience will be enhanced and will be better equipped to enjoy your life in Uruguay.

The program also includes, in the case of the student being abroad and not knowing courses to take, the possibility to help you get in contact with local universities: registration and course selection advice regarding your interests. In addition, school coordinators are at your disposal for monitoring your performance in language and theory, if necessary, throughout the study period.
