The Catholic University of Murcia reinforces its commitment to internationalization through the 'Spanish Winter Program': 55 students from various Chinese universities such as Chongqing and 11 from the Kyungpook National University of South Korea, will learn Spanish at UCAM. "It is the largest group we have had so far in this program and this means that the university is growing in Spanish courses for foreigners" said Carolina Padilla, coordinator of Spanish courses.

In addition to the Spanish classes, they will receive information about different cultural aspects of the most representative places in the Region of Murcia. "The students have no knowledge of the Spanish language, so they will reach a level A1 due to the duration of the course" said Carolina Padilla. However, the UCAM offers courses for every level: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2. In addition, UCAM is the examining center of the Cervantes Institute.

Representatives of the Kyungpook National University visited UCAM

UCAM has also received the visit of four representatives of the Kyungpook National University (Daewo, South Korea). This university is interested in establishing relations with the Catholic Church of Murcia in various areas. "Double degrees, projects for summer courses, lines of research and exchange of students", explained Ernesto García, project manager of the UCAM International Educational Projects Unit. He also added that "the reason for the visit is to get to know the faculties of the University, its facilities and to accompany the Korean students of the 'Spanish Winter Program', since 11 of the 66 students are Korean and come from this university ".
