Semester in English Program
UVM’s fee-paying Academic Semester in English Program allows non-Spanish speakers the opportunity to experience the Latin American and Chilean cultures while earning academic credits in courses taught in English.
This program is designed for students enrolled or interested in one of the following academic areas: General Studies, Liberal Arts, Social Sciences and Business. Each course has 64 contact hours which are usually the equivalent to 4 US credits or 5 ECTS according to American and European standards.
In addition to these English courses, students are encouraged to take at least one Spanish Language and Chilean Culture class to improve their language skills and learn about their host country. These courses are offered through our in-house Spanish Center, which is accredited by the Cervantes Institute in Spain.More Info Download CEFR

For students whose native language is not English, is required to include certification that they have an advanced level (B2). This certification can be a written letter from the English department of their home university addressed to our office.
The UVM respects the home university’s requirements regarding the maximum and minimum courses a student should take while abroad.
We invite all students to talk with their academic advisors in their home universities about how many credits they should take while studying with the UVM in order to maintain their full-time student status. International students should also speak with their advisors to understand how their grades and credits will transfer back.
In general, we understand that US students must take between 12-16 credits per semester, while European students normally have to complete 30 ECTS.
