The PLyCH courses are taught in Spanish but are organized and delivered specifically for exchange students. Aside from this, exchange students studying at UBP may choose from the university's general curriculum courses, which cover a wide range and include: management, communications, political sciences, and economics.
Each exchange student is matched with a local student tutor to provide additional academic assistance, particularly at the beginning of the semester, when the entirely Spanish-language courses can be quite a challenge.
The Universidad Blas Pascal offers a pre-semester language and culture course held before each of their regular semesters. The US$1600 cost of this program includes the tuition for the course (60 hours of language instruction), a home-stay (three meals/day, laundry service, etc.), medical insurance, Córdoba airport reception, a tutor, and numerous group excursions. This course is offered immediately before the regular fall semester and helps give students a head start on their Spanish language skills before the regular semester.
