Why Study Spanish at UIMP?


We are renowned for our Spanish courses and a teaching body who are selected from the best Spanish and overseas universities. All our programmes, levels and accreditations are in line with the European Common Framework of Reference for Languages. Students from over 50 countries and top international institutions choose the UIMP to refresh their Spanish training.


The excellent academic selection is complemented by free, open access to a varied programme of Cultural Activities organised by the UIMP. In step with the city’s own cultural activities (International Festival of Santander, summer programme, etc.), Santander transforms into one of the benchmarks for high culture during the summer season.


Located on the Cantabrian coast, Santander is home to one of the most beautiful bays in Europe. It is the capital of the region of Cantabria - one of the top tourist destinations in Spain thanks to its rich nature and landscapes combining sea and mountain settings within just a few kilometres. The area is home to highly diverse ecosystems, delicious cuisine and lots of sports and leisure activities for all kinds of visitors.
