Our tuition covers all courses offered in the Spanish University Preparation Program for the enrolled terms: General Spanish Language Course, Specialty Spanish Language Course, General University Preparation Course, and our Fun Afternoon Activities.
Guidance and Tutelage
The price of the Spanish University Foundation Course also includes the availability to the student of a personal advisor to help with university admission questions, preparation for admission exams, and any other student questions or concerns. In addition, the tuition includes academic progress tests and regular one-on-one meetings with the student’s professor in order to assess the student’s progress in the program.
All AIL Madrid accommodation (i.e. host families, shared flats and university residences) are screened by our accommodation advisor. For us it is important to maintain a trusting and honest relationship with our providers, so as to secure a convenient and comfortable living and study atmosphere for all our students. In addition, our advisor is always available if you have any questions or problems of any kind.
Airport Pick-up Service
When a student first arrives in a foreign country with all their suitcases, it can be a bit overwhelming. To make the first day a little easier, AIL Madrid has arranged a complementary pick-up service for our Spanish University Preparation Program students. We provide for student collection from Madrid’s Barajas airport and transfer the students to their accommodation or to our school.
24-hour emergency phone number
Things happen and AIL Madrid wants its university preparation students to feel comforted that if they need help they have someone to call at any time, day or night. In the case of any problem that should occur we ask our students to call our 24-hour emergency contact number: 607 959 887.
New culture, new rules, and a new language: we know the transition into a new culture can be a lot! In order to make your transition easier, AIL Madrid offers an Orientation Week Program for its university preparation students, to help make the adjustment that much easier. The Orientation Week Program includes a student welcome evening with tapas and drinks, which will give the student the opportunity to meet and get to know your fellow classmates. In addition, AIL Madrid will give their university preparation students a guided city tour around Madrid. We will also organize a get together at a local establishment, where all the students and teachers can introduce themselves. In addition, we provide all the information you need about transportation around the city, siestas, neighborhoods, safety etc. Local information
Whether you decide to go abroad for a couple of weeks, a year, or more, it is incredibly important to have enough knowledge about the destination and to be well-informed about the cultural differences, local laws and local customs. AIL Madrid provides its students with information about Madrid e.g. the neighborhoods (barrios), services (shops, restaurants, etc.) things to do (sightseeing, museums, etc.), cultural differences, things to look out for and be careful about, as well as many other tips and useful local information.
The grammar books that are used in our Spanish classes are included in the standard tuition as well as several additional learning materials.
