All classes are taught in Spanish. The more Spanish coursework a student has already completed prior to the program, the more curriculum options that student will have. Upon arrival, all students take a language placement exam. If the score indicates a lower proficiency, the student will be restricted to a specific semester track that includes Spanish language instruction, the history of Uruguay, Uruguayan literature, and community service. Students with a score indicating higher language proficiency may take standard university courses with other Uruguayans. There is a pre-term Intensive Spanish Class option that meet 2 weeks before the regular tem and cost $330.
