General information

The Pre-University Summer School (PreUniSS) is a unique opportunity to broaden the horizons of students between the ages of 16 and 18 who are already thinking about their university studies, while studying at a top university. UAM oversees the academic aspects of the program and grants the diplomas and official transcripts, and SpaCIE recruits the students and oversees the logistics of the program.

The PreUniSS consists of the following courses, each of two weeks’ duration (6 ECTS credits in total):

1. Skills course: Speaking and Writing Skills for Success at University (SWSSU)
2. Academic content course: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Climate Change (MACC)

The MACC is an exclusive 2-week study course that offers a high-quality multidisciplinary course, taught in English by top professors of many disciplines (Art, Biology, Business, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Economics, Engineering, Geography, Humanities, Law, Marketing, Physics, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology) and by top practitioners from the business world.

The MACC course targets students keen to gain academic enrichment not only in their future discipline, but in many other fields through a multidisciplinary approach to Climate Change. Moreover, in case you have not decided yet what you are going to study at university, our course will greatly help you to decide what you want to study.

The SWSSU course is a two-week study program, taught in English, where students will focus on important skills that they need to master to be successful university students, such as effective listening and reading, delivering presentations, and writing papers. Furthermore, students will also work in small teams to deliver a presentation to the wider group.

You will take the PreUniSS not only with peers like you, but also with UAM and international university students. Additionally, the Program is complemented by social and cultural events, as well as academic field trips.
