This course is designed for foreign students who wish to complete a university degree in Spain. To achieve this, they must first pass an entry exam known as “PAU” (Prueba de Acceso a la Universidad) or “Selectividad”.
The preparation courses for PAU are tailored to each individual student; it is a fast and easy way to gain access and it doesn’t matter what your level or capabilities are.
Who is this course for?
Intended for students from foreign educational systems with which Spain has homologation agreements making their qualifications compatible, who have completed upper secondary school up to the Spanish Bachillerato level (pre-university course) in their countries.
What is the exam?
The university entrance exams (PAU) evaluate the academic maturity of students and check that they have acquired the necessary knowledge of upper- secondary education (Spanish Bachillerato). When passing the exams, students can access higher education in Spain.
