Expanish Spanish School is proud to announce our new partnership with an accredited university in the United States to offer all of our students official academic credits. Thanks to Expanish’s status as an IALC-accredited member, we have formed a School of Record relationship with the IPSL Global Institute at the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM), accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.
This partnership means that all students studying Spanish at our schools in Buenos Aires and Barcelona can now choose to receive an official, US-based transcript for all the language courses they complete with us. Transcripts are important to students because they serve as proof of proficiency to advance academically in their studies or professionally in their careers. If you are currently enrolled in college or will be in the near future, a good way to complete foreign language requirements is to spend a semester or a summer in a foreign country fully immersed in the local language and culture. It can also serve as a money saver as it means you won’t have to spend on foreign language courses later on!
Our IALC-accreditation demonstrated to our new partners the rigorous standard of our courses, and this has been further proven by our School of Record relationship, as they have reviewed every Expanish course, our general academic practices, physical facilities, policies and standards through a process of observation and evaluation. We are proud to announce that we have been granted a course equivalency based on similar courses offered in the United States, and that our courses have thus been validated for United States Higher Education credit.
All students interested in this possibility are encouraged to also take a look at our Independent Student Programs in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Barcelona, Spain. You can come spend a semester, quarter, summer, or short period of a few weeks with us to fully immerse yourself in the language and experience everything each destination has to offer. With our varied housing options that help you live like a local, our included cultural activities, fast-paced curriculum and friendly staff, we are certain that it will be the adventure of a lifetime!
Financial constraints are not an issue!
If you are at all worried about finances, be aware that Expanish accepts all types of financial aid, grants, scholarships, or loans that students may receive to help pay for their academic programs. Our credits can also be covered by US student loans.
But Expanish is also proud to offer our own scholarships, five scholarships of US$ 1,000 to help cover costs for students attending our programs in either Barcelona or Buenos Aires. We are also willing to offer partial scholarships to particularly strong candidates. Read more about this.
We are excited to have all of our future students join us, and cannot wait to show you everything the Spanish-speaking world has to offer!
