Credit Equivalency Policy for Spanish Section of MLLL
- First semester: September to early February
- Second semester: February to end of June
- The nature of this Spanish academic calendar means that OU students interested in staying for just one semester will usually have to go for the Spring rather than the Fall semester. Although you can participate in the Fall semester, Jaume I does not end early enough to allow OU students to return to campus in time to start Spring semester classes.
Since this program is a University Exchange program you will pay OU tuition/fees to your OU Bursar, and housing/meals/immigration documents will be paid to your host country.
