Student exchanges

Study abroad in Bogotá, Colombia

In conjunction with the School of Commerce, we are establishing a new study abroad programme in Bogotá, Colombia, in 2017. This programme will provide students with a unique opportunity to study Spanish and Commerce while gaining hands-on experience in the Latin American business world.

Exchange programme with Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha

The Spanish Programme has an exchange programme with the University of Castilla-La Mancha in Spain. UC students can study at any one of the university's four campuses, located at Ciudad Real, Toledo, Cuenca, and Albacete.

This is a unique opportunity to improve your Spanish linguistic skills by studying in Spain for one or two semesters. Students usually undertake an exchange in their second year of Spanish studies at UC, and suitable courses at Castilla-La Mancha can be credited towards your degree.

If Spanish is your major and you have a minimum average of a B, you may be eligible to apply. Contact the Spanish Subject Coordinator, the International Mobility Coordinator or visit UC's Outgoing Exchange website.

Deadline 1 August.
