If you are from the United States or another country that is not a member of the European Union, you NEED a student visa before entering Spain if you stay in the country more than 3 months. Please, Make sure that you follow the visa instructions from your local consulate carefully. Also, starting in mid-2025, most EU countries, including Spain, will require an ETIAS travel authorization. You can find more information here.

In the semester programs, to be considered full time, a student must take between 24-30 ECTS credits (12-15 US credits). That is 4-5 classes.

NO. UPO and The International Center offer a great variety of classes both in Spanish and English in the semester programs. For more information please check the class offer of the different programs:

Multidisciplinary Studies Program

Integration Program (PIU)

As the UPO is a public Spanish university, you should not have problems transferring credits to your home university. However, it’s important that you speak to your academic advisor at your university about the classes you wish to take. All the course syllabi from the classes offered in the Multidisciplinary Studies Program are on our website, here.
