More than 30% of our program participants are college and university students. Most them come to our Spanish Language School in Cusco to advance their foreign language capabilities in as short a period of time as possible, and academic credit is not normally a concern.
However, if requested we are more than willing to provide your university with an Official Transcript and course information such as: course syllabus, total hours taken, teacher evaluation, attendance report, curriculum covered, final exam with letter grade, etc., in order to grant academic credit for your course.
We can help you design your own study abroad program in Peru according to your specific needs: you can combine Spanish Language and Peruvian culture courses for academic credit with adventure and travel or with volunteering and internship. Just contact us and our academic advisors will be happy to assist you.
In March, July & October, we also offer special 2-week Spanish for University Students courses. You can be a part of this special group of motivated, young people who want to know much more about the Spanish Language and Latin American Literature and Culture. Intermediate level of Spanish is required.
This 2-week program includes visits to sites of interest, lectures about Latin American History and Literature and discussion groups about several topics. Four hours of Spanish daily and two hours of extra activities. This course has fixed starting dates (see the "Dates and Fees" page) of this online brochure.
