Primarily Spanish, very few English-taught courses available.
Due to the limited supply of courses in English, a whole study period solely in English is unfeasible. It's obligatory to matriculate a minimum of 25% of the student´s total credits in subjects that are taught in Spanish.
Language requirement: a minimum language level of B1 (CEFR) in Spanish. Students can hand in the following documents at the time of their Utrecht University Study Abroad application:
At the time of application to UAM students are also required to provide proof of at least a B1 level Spanish.
The International Exchange Office highly recommends a B2 level at the moment of exchange in order to fully participate in courses.
Spanish language courses taken will not be part of the Transcript of Records issued by the Faculty of Law (so credits cannot be submitted in Utrecht).
