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!

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.

Lauren Chapman Speakeasy, March 2021

I started this program in November of 2020 and have been enrolled for 16 weeks. The amount I’ve progressed is tremendous. One of the main reasons I’ve advanced so far in my ability to speak, listen and write is due to the phenomenal teachers at this school. I had 4 different teachers with their own unique styles. I can say that every single one was amazing and pushed me to get to the point where I am now. Thanks to Olga, Marta, Verónica and Joan, I can now confidently say I speak Spanish and navigate myself through Spain without so much fear of having to communicate. I have met many students from other language schools who switched to Speakeasy and all of them have told me this school is the best Spanish learning school they’ve gone to due to the amazing professors. I highly recommend you take classes here!
