Welcome to the AIL Madrid University Pathway program!Have you always wanted to attend a Spanish university, or to send your child to one of the best universities in the world? Did you know that Spain is the number one destination for European Erasmus students, and that Madrid is the top destination in Spain? Is navigating the system, worrying about student visas and entrance exams, or the fact that you don’t speak Spanish making you feel like giving up? Well fret no more! AIL Madrid is here to guide you through the process and prepare you for a bright future here in Spain.
Our highly selective university pathway program will ease you through the process of enrolling in a Spanish University. If you are accepted on the program, we will give you all the administrative support you need as well as preparation for the exams. This includes an intensive Spanish course, university entrance exams preparation, a student visa, and ongoing advice and assessment.
AIL Madrid is a highly competitive Spanish language academy offering a wide variety of classes to students of all levels. We are partnered with one of the most exclusive preparatory academies in Madrid and, together, we will ensure you get the highest possible score on the Spanish university entrance exams.
On acceptance having successfully completing the interview process, we can provide you with five basic study options designed to fit your specific needs and maximize your performance in the entry exams:• The Classic Program: This will take you all the way through the process. You will begin with a 6 month intensive Spanish program with AIL Madrid. Having reached the requisite B1 level you then begin an 8 month course with our partner school on the specific exams you need to pass to gain entrance to a Spanish university.
• The Fast Track Program: For ambitious students looking to complete the process in the quickest possible time. As with the Classic Program this option starts with 6 months of Spanish at AIL Madrid but then condenses the study with our partner school into 5 months with extra afternoon classes to prepare for the entrance exams.
• The Parallel Program: For students who already have a B1 level of Spanish. This option allows you to go straight into the entrance exam preparation classes at our partner school while continuing to perfect your Spanish with weekend, or evening classes at AIL Madrid.
• Just Spanish: For students who comply with all the other entrance requirements but need to get their Spanish up to B2 level. This consists of 6 months of intensive Spanish at AIL Madrid as well as all the necessary advice and guidance.
• Just Access: For students who already have at least a B2 level of Spanish and who therefore only need to prepare for the University entrance exams. This consists of 5 or 8 months of preparation for the relevant exams as well as all the necessary advice and guidance.
We understand that coming to a new country for your higher education is a big step and we want to make sure that you have the best experience possible. We will serve as your sole multi-lingual information source to make the whole procedure as painless as possible. We can tell you exactly which exams you need to take according to your chosen subject and when you register for your exams you will also submit one simple form indicating your preferred universities so that you can be paired with the best matches, based on your scores. And then, voila! You are a Spanish university student!?
Throughout the course, you can choose from a variety of accommodation options: a carefully vetted host-family (recommended for fast language improvement), student housing, and shared flats are some of our students' top choices. Again, we will arrange everything for you, or your family, to ensure they are in the most secure, learning-friendly environment available.
We have streamlined the whole process into four easy steps, to eliminate confusing communications with all the different administration offices. To begin your journey, simply get in contact with us and we will guide you.
