Live and learn in the Mediterranean city of Murcia, Spain! The city of Murcia offers students rich history, architecture, and culture. At the University of Murcia (Universidad de Murcia), courses are offered in a variety of disciplines across two campuses: Campus La Merced and Campus Espinardo. A few courses are offered in English in the disciplines of Business and Primary Education but courses across all other disciplines are taught fully in Spanish.

Refer to the course catalog for course offerings. Updated course offerings will be provided later in the application process. Official registration of courses takes place on-site.

Note: Spring semester-only students cannot enroll in courses listed as "full-year." Students can take courses in different "degrees." However, at least half of the courses must belong to the same "Grado." To avoid scheduling difficulties, it may be best to take all courses within the same degree.

A two week intensive Spanish language course is required in September for Academic Year students and in February for Spring semester students.
