.:: SPANISH LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS [...]

All incoming exchange students coming to ETSIT MUST give proof of their sufficient knowledge of the Spanish Language by means of certificate/statement of having achieved level A2 (CEFR) of Spanish. This document can be handed in upon arrival. We accept your home institution certificate.


If the student’s actual language abilities do not correspond to the one mentioned above, he/she will not be accepted in the Spanish language regular courses offered by the university, and could be refused enrolment upon arrival at UPV.


NOTICE: Although the minimum required level is A2, most Schools/Faculties at UPV may have stricter requirements, and applicants are strongly encouraged to reach at least a B1 level before arriving at UPV in order to follow the university courses taught in Spanish. The Spanish intensive course offered in our campus in Gandia can help the student reach the required level, but it is not enough by itself, as it only provides 50 hours of teaching.


Exceptions can be considered if the applicant intends to do ONLY project work (bachelor or master thesis, etc.) supervised in English or another language. A letter or email explaining this circumstance should be enclosed with the application material. These students cannot participate in the Spanish language regular courses, which begin at A2 level of CEFR.
