University of Salamanca
The University of Salamanca was founded in 1134, and has more than 25,000 students, including roughly 9000 international students.
Salamanca is a good starting point for exploring the Iberian Peninsula. The city is located two hours west of Madrid, and only an hour from the border of Portugal.
The Old City of Salamanca is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the most important university cities in Spain. The city therefore has a lively international student environment.
This is an Erasmus + agreement. As an Erasmus student, you will be participating in the world’s largest exchange programme and can study at good European universities without paying tuition. Through Erasmus+, you will be given an extra grant that provides more money to enjoy your stay.
Students should be fluent in Spanish in order to follow ordinary classes, and the language requirement for exchange students is a B1 level in Spanish.
Everyone participating in an Erasmus+ exchange programme must take an online language test online before they travel, and they will be given access to a language course through this service. The Division of Research, Internationalisation and Innovation (AFII) will inform you of this test in advance.
If you can document that part of the study takes place in spanish, you may receive a grant from the State Educational Loan Fund, Norway for a 4-week language course to be taken in Spain prior to the start of the semester.
You will not be paying tuition at this institution and will receive the Erasmus+ grant in addition to a grant from the State Educational Loan Fund, Norway. You will receive the same financial support from the State Educational Loan Fund, Norway as for studies in Norway, in addition to a travel grant. You must pay a semester fee to HVL in order to receive a loan and grant from the State Educational Loan Fund, Norway during the exchange period.
In order to apply for a student exchange programme, your application must first be approved by the study programme of your faculty. An approved application means that you have been given an academic pre-approval for the course or traineeship you will be doing abroad. The academic pre-approval specifies what you will be doing while you are on an exchange programme and confirms these activities will be fully approved as part of your education plan at HVL.
