I studied Spanish in the USA, Central America and Spain, and in my opinion Burgos is the best location for Spanish immersion. Burgos was the capital of the Kingdom of Castile and the origin for Castilian Spanish. The city is full of historic landmarks from the Roman Empire, Middle Ages and Renaissance. Read more reviews...

Academics: semester & year

The semester and academic year curriculum offers courses and internships (professional, community service, etc.). Courses are offered at the University of Burgos (UBU) and Escuela de Espanol (EDE). Internships are organized at various companies, NGOs and hospitals.

Students can enroll in a maximum of 18 credits per semester. Most courses are the equivalent of 3 semester credits; courses with a laboratory are equivalent to 4 semester credits. Internships are 3 to 6 credits, depending on time commitment. The Spanish Society & Culture and Spanish Language courses are required.

Courses marked with an asterisk (*) are taught in English. The other courses are taught in Spanish with English support, which includes tutoring, and academic materials and exams in English. These 'English-friendly' courses are a great way to improve Spanish proficiency while earning major-specific and general education credit. Students with advanced proficiency may also enroll in courses (not listed on this page) taught in Spanish without English support. Note that Fall semester courses may have final exams in January. Check with KEI before finalizing your Fall semester courses.)
