Course overview

Especially designed for students who are looking for a pathway to further their education in Spain, the University Pathway Program is the steppingstone to study the Spanish University that you’ve always dreamed of.

The University Pathway Program is designed to get your Spanish up to a B2 level, the level required to be able to study in Spanish universities. If you are a complete beginner, you can join this course one year before the entry to your preferred University program, and from there, continue with your studies. If you are a non-EU student, you can apply for a student visa with this course, and then prolong your visa with the higher-education course of your choice.

We collaborate with private universities of different disciplines who can provide you with a conditional acceptance letter, stating that you will be accepted to the institution as long as you reach a B2 level with Speakeasy prior to your entry.

This program is more than just learning Spanish. Our team will help connect you to a variety of higher education options that you can continue your studies in after you’ve perfected your Spanish. We will also help guide you through the complex practical and legal procedures from start to finish.
The Speakeasy University Pathway Program is your door towards a great Barcelona experience that will shape your future!

The University preparation course also includes all necessary application documents that you will need from the school. We have years of experience helping non-EU citizens to obtain their long-term student visas. We know it can be quite daunting and complex but you can take comfort in the fact that we will be there for you each step of the way.


Speakeasy is happy to offer you a selection of accommodation types if you need help finding a home away from home during your stay in Barcelona. Options include a room in a shared private apartment, host family, full private apartment or a room in a student residence. Most of our apartments, families and residences are located within 20 minutes from the school and the city center by public transport.


In addition to the comfort of knowing that you will be fully covered throughout your stay in Spain, many student visas require students to be covered with comprehensive medical insurance. If you plan to stay in Spain for more than 180 days and you need a long-term student visa (type D), you must have insurance with full coverage of medical services in Spain.

Philip Opaola Speakeasy, February 2022

I’ve been a student at speakeasy for a month and a half now and it’s been going even better than I could’ve expected. We started learning practical Spanish from day 1 and by the end of the first week I was already able to have basic conversations with cashiers, friends, and people I met while out and about. There’s no better motivation than being able to use the words and phrases you learn in class to immediately connect with people. Of course the quality of learning also stems from the quality of teaching, and I can’t speak highly enough of my professor at the school Cristina Revenga. In addition to a varied pedagogical approach (which keeps the whole class engaged for 4 hours at a time) and an endless amount of enthusiasm for the subject, she’s also a great source of knowledge about Spanish culture. She’s constantly recommending songs, books, food, festivals and other ways to engage with the language and culture outside of class. My classmates also bring a diverse range of backgrounds to the classroom. It’s great learning about Camino de Santiago with an architect in class who can talk about the history of Romanesque architecture in Spain, or learning about linguistic similarities between Spanish and Swedish, Dutch or German from students from those countries. Basically if you’re interested in learning Spanish and are curious about taking an immersive approach, you can’t go wrong with this academy.
