Spanish language school association Fedele has announced an agreement with the University of Castilla La Mancha, creating opportunities for member language schools in the Aula Universitaria Abierta (AUNA) programme for international students.

The AUNA programme is a semester-length course for students aged 18 and over to improve Spanish speaking skills while studying credit-bearing degree subjects of academic interest.

Under the agreement, students will be able to undertake a Spanish language programme with Fedele member schools that participate in the scheme as a pathway to the AUNA semester courses.

Ana Cózar, Director of Fedele, told StudyTravel Magazine she hoped at least 15-to-20 member schools would be interested in joining the scheme.

The AUNA programme is delivered at two campuses in Toledo and Cuenca, with course electives available in subject areas including humanities, business management and administration, early childhood education, law, social work and sports sciences. Over 500 electives are offered.

“The AUNA programme will be very interesting for language students in specific purpose programmes. After the Spanish language course in Fedele schools, students can go to the university to spend a semester in their preferred career,” said Cózar.

She added that the programme was mainly designed for postgraduate students looking to improve their Spanish in their fields of expertise. A minimum Spanish language proficiency of B1 is required for AUNA courses.
