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!

If you will be applying for a student visa with your course at Speakeasy we will help you with the entire visa application process. 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.

Our team will help you through the process from start to finish


Rob Long Speakeasy, March 2021

Speakeasy is an extraordinary language learning school. I have received is consistent energy, passion and commitment from my teachers to help me succeed at Spanish language learning. I would call out Profesora Ana Eva who has a style so inclusive and so committed to every person in the class, I am making progress with Ana and so is everybody else in my group. There is first class communication from the Admin team who keep me updated regularly. A learning experience I will never forget and the most important thing – I’m not forgetting the skill of a new language, because Speakeasy is helping me succeed.


Can I do a trial class?

We do not offer trial classes due to class planning and organization. Except for in the Evening Course (4 weeks minimum enrollment) you can enrol in one week of class to see if it is the right fit for you and then prolong your booking if you choose to do so. If the level or type of course doesn’t suit you, we are always happy to switch you to a higher or lower level or different timetable.

How long can I stay with a host family?

The minimum stay for being with a host family is one week and the maximum is up to one year.
