Program costs

Program costs include:

  • Tuition fees for the courses. If there are students interested in the option of taking only one of the two courses, it will be considered, but priority will be given to students taking the whole program. Therefore, there may not be room for the option of taking just one course. Costs are shown both for just one course (3 ECTS credits) and for the whole program (6 ECTS credits). Even if the 3-ECTS-credit option is eventually offered, it is highly advisable to take the whole program.
  • Costs of social and cultural events, as well as field trips included in the Program.

Please, note that program costs DO NOT include:

  • Local transportation (except when arranged by the Program for some field trips).
  • Food (except when provided by the Program in some events).
  • Accommodation, since the Program is mostly intended for local (Madrid) students.

Although the Program is mostly intended for local students, students living in other regions of Spain or abroad may also apply. However, if you are a minor, you should be prepared to travel with a parent or guardian and arrange your own accommodation or make similar arrangements. If you are in this case, please, note that program costs DO NOT include:

  • Travel between your home city/country and Madrid.
  • Visa (if required).
  • Health/accidents insurance.
  • Local transportation (except when arranged by the Program for some field trips).
  • Food (except when provided by the Program in some events).
  • Accommodation.

Students from any school (“Instituto de Educación Secundaria”, “Colegio”, etc.) receive a 12.5% discount if they complete their application (applications are complete when we receive the non-refundable application fee) within the early-bird discount period (until May 6). Additionally, students from Partner Schools* and Special Groups** receive a 12.5% discount. Therefore, students from Partner Schools and Special Groups receive a 25% discount if they complete their application during the early-bird discount period.

Please, see the table below for the Program costs (since the non-refundable application fee is considered part of the Program costs, an admitted applicant must register by paying the Program costs shown in this table minus the already paid non-refundable application fee of 60.00 euros):

* Definition of Partner School: For the purposes of applying the Partner discount, a Partner School is any School that actively promotes the PreUniSS among its students (presenting information about the PreUniSS on its website, distributing information about the Program by email to parents…). This promotion can be done by the School itself or by its Parents’ Association (AMPA). The School or the AMPA of the School must inform us that they are doing this promotion so that we can include them in the list of Partners.

** Definition of Special Groups: For the purposes of applying the Special Group discount, a Special Group is any type of Group that achieves this status by agreement with SpaCIE, such as the associations to which SpaCIE offers this discount.

Refund policy: refunds will only be made for amounts paid (except for the non-refundable application fee) in the event of cancellation of the Program by UAM and/or SpaCIE.
