UPC international students
International students enrolled at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) may take courses in Spanish as a foreign language offered by Hispanic Studies at the UB. These courses are offered at the same reduced rate available to UB students.
Courses are held at one of the following locations:
Plaça de la Universitat
Most courses are held in the central building of the Area of Further Training, at Gran Via de Les Corts Catalanes 582. These include courses in Spanish language, in Spanish culture, in preparation for examinations for the Cervantes Institute’s Diploma in Spanish as a Foreign Language (DELE).
Hispanic Studies also offers UPC international students the chance to take a Spanish language course in the Zona Universitària area, on the UB’s Diagonal Knowledge Gateway Campus.
The course has a duration of 40 hours and is designed with university students in mind, focusing on their specific language requirements and the discursive skills needed to complete a course of university study. Different levels are offered according to each student’s existing knowledge of Spanish.
Those students who successfully complete the examination at the end of the course will be awarded 5 credits towards their degree studies.
