Application: requirements, how to apply, and calendar

At the time of beginning the Pre-University Summer School, students applying for this program must be Graduates in “Educación Secundaria Obligatoria (E.S.O.)” (Compulsory Secondary Education) or its equivalent abroad, who are studying, are going to study, or just finished studying “Bachillerato” (Baccalaureate, High School Diploma) or its equivalent abroad. Therefore, the typical student applying to the Program would be aged 16-18. There are no subject-specific criteria, but you should be a passionate and enthusiastic learner.

All teaching is conducted in English so students must be able to demonstrate a good level of English language and comprehension. We assess students’ English ability through their application. If you have a certificate of your English level, you are encouraged to provide it, but we do not require any certificate. Your level of English should be at least B1, but B2 is highly recommended. We expect most students to have a B2 or C1 level.

Since we do not provide or manage accommodation, if you are a minor living in other regions of Spain or abroad and intend to apply to the PreUniSS you should be prepared to travel with a parent or guardian and arrange your own accommodation or make similar arrangements.

HOW TO APPLY?

Download the application form here: Application Form PreUniSS. Application forms (filled in this PDF form, not scanned) should be submitted to preuni.summer.school@uam.es (c/c spacie@enveco.es) along with the following documents (please refer to the application form for additional documents that must also be attached in some cases):

  • A scanned copy of your payment receipt of the non-refundable application fee. Download here the instructions to pay the non-refundable application fee of 60 euros: Application Fee PreUniSS. The non-refundable application fee is considered part of the Program costs, and hence it will be deductible from the total payment due.
  • A scanned copy of your Spanish ID (DNI or NIE). In the case of non-residents in Spain, scanned copy of your passport (photo ID page) or EU ID card for EU residents.
  • A scanned copy of your grades from the last and current academic years.
  • A one-page statement of purpose (in English) addressing why you are interested in the PreUniSS and what are your academic plans (in PDF format).

Early-bird-discount application deadline: MAY 6

Regular application deadline: JUNE 12

Extraordinary-period application deadline: JUNE 25

You will receive notification of admission to the program within 10 days from the completion of your application (when we receive your non-refundable application fee). Admitted applicants must register by paying the full cost of the program (minus the already paid non-refundable application fee) within 15 days from admission (when we send you the e-mail confirming admission) if you applied during the early-bird-discount period or the regular (no-discount) period; or within 2 days from admission if you applied during the extraordinary period. After 15 or 2 days without registration and payment, admission will be withdrawn, and the non-refundable application fee will be lost. In this case, if you want to reapply, you will have to pay a new non-refundable application fee.
