Our international and Spanish students are entitled to a global learning experience based on the different training itineraries that GSD International School Buitrago offers .

Foundation Year Program

Foundation Year is an intensive immersion course in Spanish language and culture. Students take a Spanish course (20 hours per week in small groups) combined with attending classes of different subjects with Spanish students. At the end of the course, they will be able to get an official certificate through Instituto Cervantes (SIELE). When the students finish this program they might join the IB, National Baccalaureate or Vocational Studies programmes.
