Your Guide to Entering a University in Spain - the AIL Madrid Pathway Program


 Spanish universities are internationally recognized as being at the cutting edge of teaching offering academic excellence and being world leaders in a diverse range of disciplines. These factors make Spain a top destination for high achieving young international students looking to excel in their chosen field. Taking undergraduate or graduate studies at a Spanish university offers many advantages, not least of which are becoming fluent in a major world language, as well as the professional opportunities and endless doors that having a degree in Spain can open.

If you think you have the ambition and drive necessary to step up to the challenge, then the AIL Madrid Pathway program is for you.  


Pre-arrival Preparation

Before arriving in Spain, our expert team of professionals  will analyze your situation (nationality, preferred areas of study, high school grades achieved and desired university if applicable) and then give detailed advice on your exact requirements. We also help with logistics including visa applications, accommodation arrangement and arrival planning. 

Program Objectives

Once you are here and having successfully navigated orientation, we focus on preparing you for the two key challenges facing Pathway students on the road to gaining entrance to a Spanish university: 

1. Getting your Spanish up to at least B2 (upper-intermediate) level by the time you are ready to start university.

2. Passing the PAU entrance exams.   

We provide training in both of these areas through our intensive Spanish programs at AIL Madrid, and the PAU exams through our partner school, an expert in preparing students for entrance to a Spanish university in all major subjects.

Program Options


Because the specific circumstances of different candidates vary, we offer several Pathway program options to help each student take the optimum route to success. 
The Classic program - 6 months of intensive Spanish classes followed by 8 months of exam training for the PAU. 
The Fast Track program - 6 months of Spanish but condenses the exam training into 5 months. 
The Parallel program - for students who already have a B1 (intermediate) level of Spanish and want to go straight into the exam preparation while continuing to improve their Spanish with us in evening classes. 

Just Spanish program - for those lucky candidates who already comply with the PAU requirement, but need to get their Spanish up to at least B2 level.  
All the programs include expert advice on administrative procedures, and on the exact PAU courses that students need to pass.

Personal Growth and Development

In terms of personal development, our experience is that students find the whole process one of the most rewarding things they will ever do. The Pathway program is designed to get you on the right track from the very beginning. It’s the vital first step on route to a life changing experience for high flying students looking to become truly global citizens.
