Cursos semestrales

The DiLe Program offers you an unforgettable experience in Madrid

At the UAM you have the best of both worlds: you can take courses that were specially designed for incoming international students and direct enroll in a vast number of regular undergraduate courses. If you are looking for a Gap Year, join us and enhance your undergraduate or graduate application.

  • Earn 30 ECTS per semester
  • Stay for one or two semesters (fall / spring or full academic year)
  • Stay on track: combine DiLe courses with regular grado courses for your major/minor

The minimum required proficiency level of Spanish is B1 (intermediate), however we recommend a B2 (high intermediate) for those students who wish to enroll in regular UAM courses.  If you need a little extra help with your Spanish, you can take the language intensive version of the language course for 12 ECTS.

At the UAM we are especially concerned about the health and safety of our students.  We are committed to you and want you to have the best immersion experience in the language and culture of Spain.
