Of course it does! The International House network of schools offers the opportunity to validate and validate credits in collaboration with European and North American universities.

The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System, known as ECTS, is the standard used by the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) to ensure the quality of certified academic programmes.

Each ECTS credit represents at least 25 hours of work, covering both class time and individual study time.

Generally, our classes are made up of groups of between 6 and 10 students, which provides a fun atmosphere but also ensures that each student receives personal attention from their teacher.

Before the classes start, we make sure we know your level of Spanish and which group you will fit in best to get the most out of your experience. To do this, we will send you a link to an online test which you can complete before you arrive at our school. On your first day at Academia Británica, you will have a personal interview with one of our teachers. During this interview, we will assess not only your Spanish language ability, but also your learning objectives and needs. This will allow us to determine in which group and level you will be able to progress most effectively.

We want to be transparent with you: the choice is up to you. But if you’re looking for our perspective… Normally, students who immerse themselves in Spanish with us for an extended period of time prefer to take fewer hours of classes. While those who visit us for only one or two weeks usually prefer more hours of classes to make the most of their stay, you are in control of what is best for you! We are here to accompany you on this exciting experience – get ready to immerse yourself in learning with us!
