Language of Instruction
As we mention in our International Guide, we do not require any certification or a determinate level of language, although students are expected to be able to follow lectures in Spanish. In accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, a B1 Spanish level is advisable.
Besides, those students who do not speak Spanish usually experience difficulties of communication during their stay in Malaga.
Spanish is the language of instruction of our institution, but there are some subjects offered in English. However, these are highly demanded since there is a limit of students per course. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that these courses will be available.
Please find here the list of subjects taught in English 2019-2020* (updated on 19/09/2019)
Please notice that these courses are offered in the Pre-enrolment section of EMI, but only with the Spanish name of the course. The translation into Spanish is included on the previous link. Some of this courses will be taught exclusively in English, but some of them will have different groups (some in Spanish and some in English). Therefore, in these cases you can ask your professors on the first day of class which group will be taught in English if you cannot find that information in the timetables.
