Students studying in Mexico must be certified as Spanish-language competent before the start of the semester abroad so please plan ahead.

University College Gent
SPA has a bi-lateral relationship with Gent University (GU) and the University College Gent (UCG), formerly two institutions currently undergoing a merger. The program is strong in Human Resources Management with particular depth in issues relating to the management of European Institutions. Masters-level instruction is in English; this program is open only to MPA students.
Both GU and UCG are located in the Flemish city of Gent (also spelled "Ghent"), a medieval cathedral town with affordable housing and good public transportation. Gent's population is currently about 230,000, which swells by an additional 60,000 students during the academic year. Dutch is the official language, but English is widely spoken in Flanders.
