This program is designed primarily for Spanish majors and minors. Courses at Universidad Nebrija are taught in Spanish and pairing the Hispanic Studies Programs courses with the immersive campus environment and homestay accommodations, students will have the tools to progress their language proficiency and understanding of local culture.
Courses taken in the Hispanic Studies Program are valued at 6 ECTS which equate to 3 HPU credits. A standard enrollment at Universidad Nebrija is 30 ECTS or 5 courses.
HPU students with a major or minor in Spanish who study at Universidad Nebrija during the Spring term can also choose to enroll in UNNE-IN’s Integrated Programs (Minimum level of Spanish required: B2, according to the Common European Framework Reference, although some courses are available in English; selection depends on which Integrated Program is chosen.) Students choosing this option are restricted to selecting courses from within one faculty. These programs take place on the Dehesa de la Villa Campus, Madrid Princesa Campus, or the Berzosa Campus.
For High Point University to recognize the credits you complete abroad, you must earn at least a grade equivalent to a C in the U.S. HPU will not accept credit for courses with grades of C– or below. Grades for all courses earned abroad are recorded on the international transcript. Credits are received by HPU as transfer credits, which means the credit is received but the grade is not. Your HPU grade point average will not be impacted positively or negatively by your study abroad courses.
