Academic credits

Through your own Institution        Through Brookhaven College 

At COINED we can help you to get academic credit and make your trip much easier! Academic Credit is available at any of our Spanish courses. There are two different ways to receive academic credit:

Through your own Institution:

  • Traveling abroad has increasingly become an important part of the academic world. Lots of universities around the world encourage their students to travel abroad and are willing to help you make this trip possible. In order to approve the academic credit, your University will ask you for some specific information about the program you choose to take and will make sure the program follow their requirements.
  • Some common requirements from Universities are: course syllabus, classroom hours, course levels, academic policies, receiving progress reports from your teachers while you are abroad and talking to other teachers who know the program. Once you return to your country you will be given a test. We will help you gather all the required paperwork.
