The main objective of the International Foundation Program (IFP) is to prepare international students to take a degree at the Univ. Navarra. Other students do the IFP as a gap year, immersing in Spanish Language and Culture and taking college-level classes taught in English at the same time, gaining some college credit on the way.
You will acquire an adequate basis of both Spanish language and culture, as well as specific knowledge of the studies you will carry out in the future. The program comprises 60 ECTS (European Transfer Credit System) and is divided into two modules: Linguistic and Cultural Competences and Specific Degree Contents (9 different modules are offered). Depending on your level of Spanish, the study load of each module is adapted to your specific needs. You can carry out the annual program that starts in September (60 ECTS) or the semester program that starts in January (30 ECTS). - You will have an academic advisor who will help you choose the subjects and modules that meet your needs. You will receive this help throughout the whole program and the advisor will help you adapt to our university system and make the most of your experience on the program. - As an IFP student, you will study and live with undergraduates and you will form part of our student community. You will benefit from all our cultural, sports, social and volunteer activities, etc. - Our academic standard is high and every year we feature at the top of global rankings. Our academic staff is committed to ongoing innovation in teaching and research. - 27% of the students at the University of Navarra come from abroad, so we have a lot of experience as hosts. We are sure that you will feel at home. - The credits for some of the subjects studied in the IFP can be transferred to your degree or bachelor's studies if you decide to continue at the University of Navarra, or transfer. Prepare for your future; get to know all the opportunities the University of Navarra and the city of Pamplona have to offer you; sports, social and cultural activities, and much more. Do not miss out on this opportunity!
