This gap year programme is one of the best ways for students to expand their language education in the least amount of time outside and inside of the classroom. It combines a unifying international focus with a multidisciplinary approach, enabling students to develop their language skills, social, historical, geographical and cultural knowledge, while also being introduced to European & LATAM politics, civilization, art, economy, literature, and international communication awareness of the Spanish-speaking world and other assorted countries at the European level from various perspectives. 

Students do not require any prior knowledge of Spanish to start. We understand that every student has different needs and different goals when they learn a new language. That is why we offer a wide variety of classes and activities to develop a substantive knowledge of study skills, critical thinking and group work while obtaining the international certification DELE. Students can also specialise in their studies with afternoon classes and more.

Become fluent in Spanish and immerse yourself in a new culture.
