Spain: A Guide to the Academic Placement of Students in Educational Institutions of the United States.
Weiss, Arnold H.
The educational system of Spain is described, and guidelines concerning the placement of students who wish to study in U.S. institutions are provided. The Education Law of 1970 and its effects on college-bound students are briefly reviewed. The following types of education are described: basic general education, the uniform general secondary school program, the college orientation year, university entrance examinations, undergraduate professional and technical schools, undergraduate colleges, professional schools at the secondary and tertiary levels, and the grading system. Undergraduate colleges are three-year institutions offering courses identical to those of the first 3 years of the standard Spanish university curriculum. After completing the undergraduate colleges, students move on to the degree phase at a university. Other tertiary institutions include polytechnic universities, military academies, and professional schools. The placement recommendations take into consideration the students' vocational and academic background. Appended are a glossary and a list of universities under state control and under private control. (SW)
