Structure and Expertise

 

CELEI is a school approved by Cervantes Institute and certified for Quality with the EU ISO 9001. Our team draws from 30 years of experience offering American standard Education, accredited by Word Learning USA, in the field of College Semester Abroad and Youth Development Programs. In the last year, we have become a Pathway School with a close-knit, family atmosphere to immerse students into the community and the culture. CELEI offers Degree and Graduate Diploma programs, as well as full preparatory programs to access Spanish university and customized Study Abroad programs, for batch groups.

We have a pedagogical focus on Learning by Experience, where the student is the protagonist in his or her own learning process. Through our courses, cultural activities, field work and volunteer service and/or internships, our students are able to immerse themselves in the Spanish language, society education and professional world in an autonomous way.

CELEI cooperates with different departments and Faculties of the University of Granada and other higher Education institutions to deliver the Expert Seminars and university courses, as well as, Professional Training and Internship courses.

CELEI is structured in coordinated departments, which attend the specific education requirements of the programs. The Language Department, which also includes Intercultural Communication training, is a pillar in the implementation of our innovative teaching approach.
