Academic calendar (pdf)

Format of class: The subjects are taught face-to-face. Classes are lectures (use of blackboard, computer, projector). Participation and answers to questions posed by the teacher are valued. Exams, projects, team work and oral presentations are given depending on each subject.

Attendance: attendance is compulsory and is often taken into account in the final grade. Participation can count for a maximum of 30 % of the final grade.

Grades: Grades are numerical, from agreement with the following scale: 0-4.9= Fail, 5-6.9 = C, 7-8.9 = B, 9-10 = A, 9-10 MH = enrollment of Honor.

Academic load for full-time students: 30 ECTS credit credit / semester. No minimum or maximum of ECTS credit credit enrolment is required.

Exams: No specific examination period occurs at the end of the semester. Exams will take place throughout the semester with grades being reflective of the cumulative work and assignments provided by each professor.

All students need to complete an online placement test. This is sent to the students once their enrolment is confirmed. At the end of the semester, students will take an achievement test to gauge their progress in Spanish.

Studying abroad is an excellent opportunity for academic and staff growth.

This required course meets once per week and will introduce you to the program staff, your fellow students, and the city of Pamplona. As the semester continues, activities will focus on academic and cultural adjustment. Detailed information about public transportation, culture, health and safety, and other important topics will also be covered.

The Buddy Program at ILCE places international students with native students of the University of Navarra at contact.

Through this programme, the new student can receive advice and recommendations, as well as a unique opportunity to integrate into the local community and learn more about Spanish culture.

Students admitted to the semester programme will receive an email with more information.

Staying with a host family is an ideal way to enrich a student's experience and to reinforce the knowledge gained during the programme. We select our families carefully, and accommodate one student per family. 

All students have individual rooms (fully furnished) and internet connection.

We also offer dormitory living for students who do not wish to live with a host family. While we do recommend living with a host family for the cultural experience, we understand that some students may be more comfortable living in a dormitory similar to those they experienced at their home universities. 

Possibility of taking an official Spanish Certification Exam upon completion of program.
