|Language of instruction|
This destination has a language of instruction other than English. This means that you need to have at least a language proficiency level of CEFR B2 Spanish. You need to complete Spanish Language and Culture II (UCHUMSPA21) or get an exemption from the UCU Language & Culture coordinator, and it is your own responsibility to achieve at least B2 Spanish. This language requirement is partly for your own protection, so you can take courses at the same level as you do at UCU, and partly because we believe it allows you to have an experience abroad that is more immersive, enriching and culturally valuable to you.
At Universidad Europea there are English courses available, but not in all departments and the possibility of oversubscription means you might have to take courses in Spanish.
The agreement UCU has is only with the following degrees: Science; Business and International Business; Psychology; Animation/Videogames; Criminology; Translation; Law; International Relations; Biotechnology. You can find out more about the programs and their courses here.
Courses are divided by year. There are four years, so four levels.
UE uses ECTS, just like UCU. Courses are 3,6 or 9 ECTS.
Universidad Europea uses a scale from 10 to 1, with 10 as the highest grade and 6 as the lowest passing grade. Below you can see how this translates to UCU grades
