The National Registration Center for Study Abroad offers students the opportunity to study Spanish in Mexico at the University of Guadalajara. Originally founded in 1792, the university is among the largest and most respected institutions of higher learning in Mexico. The Foreign Student Studies Center, a part of the university, was established in 1948 to offer foreign students the opportunity to learn Spanish as well as acquire knowledge of Mexican and Latin American culture. Latin American studies courses include history, art, economics, literature, and philosophy. The center has on average each year 2,500 students from a wide variety of countries.

The center has two primary goals: to help non-Spanish speaking students learn enough linguistic skills to communicate in Spanish in real-life settings and to offer cultural courses in social and humanities to students interested in learning more about the Latin American reality. The school has extensive facilities which include a library, a multimedia language laboratory, a computer room, and a cafeteria.

2. Avail of the student residence option available to those who want more privacy during their stay.

3. Transfer to a degree program in the university upon achieving proficiency in Spanish.
