In order to obtain your attendance certificate, you must have participated in 80% of the total amount of teaching hours. Therefore, more than two absences will not be allowed.

Students willing to improve their skills in Spanish language and get an official certificate with grades and ECTS credits, could take a Spanish course for foreing students at the UCM in our “Centro Complutense para la Enseñanza del Español” (Complutense Centre for Spanish Teaching).
