Short courses and summer schools for partner universities

Over recent years Universidad San Jorge has organised a series of tailor-made short courses and summer schools for groups of students from partner universities, designed according to the requirements and budget of the home university as well as to the academic needs of students from a variety of disciplines. These short learning experiences can be designed around Spanish language and culture, around specific themes taken from the subject areas offered by the university, and delivered in English, or can be hybrid packages including both Spanish language instruction and specific academic sessions and workshops.

Our short courses and summer schools normally last between 1 and 4 weeks, with around 20 hours of classroom-based activities per week together with relevant industry visits and complementary social and cultural activities. Students are generally not given too much work to complete outside the classroom so that they have free time to get to know Zaragoza, immerse themselves in the local culture and, of course, improve their Spanish language skills. Learning outcomes from student workload and participation in activities are reflected in the certification of corresponding ECTS credits.
