Course Information

Language of Instruction: Spanish

Students are required to present an official Spanish language certificate (SIELE, DELE.  UAG could also accept a letter issued by the Language department certifying a B2 level proficiency) for regular courses.  The Intensive Spanish and Culture Courses (viewable through the link provided below) probably don't all require the Spanish language certificate.

Course information (syllabi, total hours, credits) for regular courses is often not available on UAG's website but is available upon request.  UAG, however, does list the regular courses it offers and exchange students would be able to take courses at its Guadalajara campus from among the majors shown provided that the "modality and duration" shown for the majors is "Quarterly program" with "Duration: 10 semesters (3 years, 4 months)".

Field of Study: All with the exception of Medicine and Dentistry

There are no dormitories on the UAG campus. Students who are interested may apply for a host family. Living with a host family has a great number of advantages and is encouraged. UAG has a listing of approved families and will place students in appropriate families according to answers given in the homestay application. Students who choose not to apply for a host family will need to make their own housing arrangements.
