Universidad Pública de Navarra (UPNA) is located in the city of Pamplona, Spain. Although the city's festivities surrounding the feast of San Fermín became well-known in the last century thanks to their description in a book by Hemmingway (think: running of the bulls), the city itself has much more to offer than a week-long mid-summer festival. Pamplona has ancient roots (it was founded as a Roman outpost over 2,000 years ago) along with a modern flair and amenities, recognized as having the highest quality of living among Spain's cities. You can live and study in Pamplona at UPNA for a semester or even an academic year - growing in your Spanish language skills and experiencing all that Spain and Europe have to offer.
COURSES AND CREDITS
Almost all courses are taught in Spanish although there are a few courses taught in English. Exchange students are able to take courses in any academic discipline offered at UPNA. Students applying to this program should plan to meet with the appropriate academic advisors to help determine course selection and to seek the necessary course approval(s).
All students will be registered by the Study Abroad Office as full-time students during their semester abroad, which is 12 hours for undergraduate students and 9 hours for graduate students. Undergraduate students must return with the equivalent of at least 12 hours of credit on their host university transcript (9 hours for graduate students). All courses are graded on an ABCDF scale. There is no Pass/Fail.

Both on and off-campus student housing is available, and UPNA assists students with finding and securing housing. Visit the UPNA housing link to learn more.
For the UPNA exchange, students are responsible for paying:
- Current, full-time, UM tuition (including non-resident fees, if applicable)
- UM Study Abroad fee (includes the cost for international health insurance)
- Housing costs (details and payment are usually handled between the student and the host university)
- Travel expenses, books and supplies, personal living costs, passport and visa fees (all the responsibility of the student)
Students must be in good academic and disciplinary standing to study abroad and must have a cumulative 2.5 GPA. Students must have completed at least four semesters of college-level Spanish (or the equivalent). Additional or more stringent requirements may apply depending on the program.
In general, financial aid will apply to UM study abroad programs. All students should review the study abroad information on the Financial Aid Office website. It is the student’s responsibility to meet with a financial aid advisor to discuss how aid packages apply to study abroad. Third party scholarships may also be available for specific programs, so students should discuss study abroad early and often with the Study Abroad Office and the Financial Aid Office.
For current tuition costs, the Office of the Bursar provides a tuition estimator.
