Our Gap Semester is designed to help you maximize your potential, as you learn about yourself and your place in the world, helping you make better future academic and professional choices while you enjoy the experience of life in Madrid.
After completing this program, you will know how global challenges such as nature preservation, global warming, renewable energies, social injustice, learning divides, and others are addressed within the context of a vibrant European capital city, while contributing to resolve these issues. You will experience the culture, setting and resources of a highly selective European university, while avoiding the strains of undergraduate admission. At the end of each semester UC3M will issue a certificate describing and assessing the work you have completed, which could help you gain academic credit at institutions of higher education worldwide.
