Schedule, venue, and academic visits and cultural and social events


There will be an average of 3 hours of class per day, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. There may be activities on some afternoons.

We will publish the detailed schedule here before the start of the program. Unfortunately, we cannot announce it well in advance, as institutions only confirm the dates of most academic visits at short notice. In addition, the booking of some visits depends on the number of students finally enrolled, and many students enroll very close to the start of classes.

Course venue

Most classes will take place in the Facultad de Ciencias de la Actividad Física (INEF) of Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM). However, some classes may be held at another campus. INEF is in the University City of Madrid (Ciudad Universitaria), which is the largest campus in Spain. This campus is shared by UPM, UCM and UNED. Ciudad Universitaria has had cultural heritage status since 1999, with the category of historic site.

The address of INEF is:

Street name: Martín Fierro

Street number: 7

ZIP code: 28040 Madrid
