How to apply to the Pre-University Summer School

Requirements

At the time of beginning the Pre-University Summer School, students applying for this program must be Graduates in “Educación Secundaria Obligatoria (E.S.O.)” (Compulsory Secondary Education) or its equivalent abroad, who are studying, are going to study, or just finished studying “Bachillerato” (Baccalaureate, High School Diploma) or its equivalent abroad. Therefore, the typical student applying to the Program would be aged 16-18, including students aged 15 who turn 16 in 2023. There are no subject-specific criteria, but you should be a passionate and enthusiastic learner.

All teaching is conducted in English so students must be able to demonstrate a good level of English language and comprehension, unless they are currently studying in English or English is their native language. We assess students’ English ability through their application. If you have a certificate of your English level, you are encouraged to provide it, but we do not require any certificate. Your level of English should be at least B1, but B2 is highly recommended. We expect most students to have a B2 or C1 level.

Since we do not provide or manage accommodation, if you are a minor living in other regions of Spain or abroad and intend to apply to PreUni you should be prepared to travel with a parent or guardian and arrange your own accommodation or make similar arrangements.
