Informative Sessions: “Landing in Madrid”
In order to welcome students to Madrid and provide them with all the necessary information related to their arrival, the Student Services office organizes on campus briefings. Students can register for these sessions through the Online Campus.
The Student Services Office organizes an optional intensive Spanish course, prior to the beginning of the Master program, designed for foreign students who do not speak Spanish or whose level is so basic that they cannot interact with Spanish speakers. We recommend that enrolled students interested in signing up for the classes do so as soon as they receive access to the Online Campus.
In addition to the agreements we have with different companies, our office can inform you of various other options for getting mobile phone service. If you have any questions, contact us.
