Spanish course + PCE

For those students whose Spanish level is lower than B2 we recommend a Spanish course + PCE course. They are academic courses that last from September to June and are divided into two blocks:

  • Spanish course from September to December. It consists of 20 weekly sessions.
  • PCE course (Specific Competency course)  from January to May. You will study the 4 subjects of your choice and we will prepare you thoroughly for the exams.

If you already have a good level of Spanish you may be more interested in PCE courses without Spanish lessons.
