Beststepsabroad doesn’t discriminate against students in any way. Nor do we discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, religious belief, nationality or ethnicity, sexual orientation or disability. Therefore, all students have access to all aspects of the program without discrimination. By this we mean accommodation with families, classes at the CLM, including collaborating institutions for volunteering, experiential learning and internships, among other examples.
The program is open to undergraduate students without no required level of Spanis proficiency. Having said this, you will still need to have a language evaluation completed prior to acceptance. Ultimately, students witht an overall grade average of 2.5, and with personal evidence of flexibility and ability to adapt to life abroad will have preference on this program.
You can start your application without any commitment, as a way to get to know the program before you make a final decission.
