Please note that academic credit for your study abroad program is always subject to approval from the American college at which you are studying. It is therefore essential that you confirm with your college that they will accept transferable credit from the Spanish language school you wish to attend before you reserve your place on the program.

We are normally able to provide examples of academic transcripts for your study abroad program should your Study Abroad Department wish to see these before approving your program. Many of our schools listed above also have existing agreements for the transfer of academic credit with certain American colleges.

If your college does not already have an agreement with one of our language schools, it may be possible for your college to award credit via another college in the USA which already has an agreement with one of our language schools. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.

Guidelines for obtaining academic credit

 1  Before arranging your program with the Language Travel Company you should contact the Study Abroad Coordinator or the Foreign Languages Department at your college and find out their requirements regarding academic credit for Spanish immersion programs abroad.

 2  Your college may require an example academic transcript, program syllabus, or details regarding the teaching methods of our language school. You should first inform us what information is required. We will then be pleased to send this documentation either to you, or directly to your Study Abroad Coordinator.

 3  Once you have the approval of your Study Abroad Coordinator or Foreign Language Department, you must also ensure that all the registration paperwork required by your college is completed before you arrive at your chosen language school. You must remember to bring to your Study abroad program any forms that your college wishes the teachers on Study abroad program to complete.

 4  Throughout your study abroad program you will be assessed by your teachers. Academic credit will be awarded provided that course work is completed satisfactorily, you attend classes, and that you attain the expected grade level for your course.

 5  At the end of your study abroad program, your academic transcript will be sent to your college in the USA for the transfer of academic credit.

 6  Your college in America will charge fees for the transfer of academic credit. These fees are separate to and in addition to the cost of your study abroad program which is paid to The Language Travel Company. The cost of academic credit varies depending on your college and the number of credits you wish to transfer. These fees are normally payable either directly to your college or to your language school abroad. Your college should be able to inform you of what they will charge for academic credit.

 7  If you intend to apply for academic credit for study abroad programs you must make your reservation at least 12 weeks before you wish to begin your course, in order to allow sufficient time for your program to be approved by your college.
