Because course offerings may change from year to year, it is possible that not all eligible courses are listed above. Participants in this program who wish to enroll in any course not listed above must contact the Office of Transnational Programs by email to request approval. Participants should not expect to receive credit for courses that are not expressly approved by OTP. With some courses, exams are regularly scheduled after the Christmas holiday. In this case, students should speak to the professor at the beginning of the semester to arrange a date and time to take the exam in December.

Credits earned at ESADE are calculated with reference to the ABA’s standard class formula (12.5 hours of class time including exam time, plus 30 hours of out of class preparation and studying, per one credit hour.) Students may be asked to verify the number of minutes each course meets in order to confirm the number of credits that the student will receive upon completion of their semester abroad program.  See the Study Abroad Policy for details.

Courses at ESADE are graded on a scale of 0 to 10, with 10 being the highest grade, and 5.0 the minimum to pass.

Language Proficiency

Students who participate in this program are required to have a high level of Spanish proficiency. The Office of Transnational Programs reserves the right to ask students to submit to language testing before issuing final approval for their participation.

Housing & Facilities

The International Exchange office at ESADE will provide a student guide with contact information for housing agencies and student residences in Barcelona. Students are expected to arrange their own housing for the semester with this information. There are also announcements on the ESADE Intranet (to which Georgetown students will have access) and student counselors who can help with the process.

Details about accessibility in Barcelona are available here.

Information on library facilities available to students is available here.
