UPAEP offers scholarships for a two week language preparation course prior to the beginning of each semester. Practice your Spanish before regular university courses with this wonderful opportunity. After completing this two week language session, students can continue their universities studies in Spanish language, regular university courses in Spanish, regular university courses in English, Service learning, or a combination thereof.

Pre-Med students, Health Sciences students, and students with a sufficient background in science may enroll in UPAEP´s Pre-Med Program, offered only during the fall semester. This 3 credit program offers students a unique look inside Mexican health care, hospitals and public health issues. The Pre-Med program consists of three principal components:
  • Shadowing a local physician: Each week a student will shadow a local physician for 3-8 hour per week, and have the opportunity to observe doctor-patient interactions, procedures, and in some cases, observe surgeries in the operating room. Students are typically assigned to doctors in local public hospitals.
  • Lectures: Students will attend 4 to 10 lectures from physicians regarding the health system in Mexico. Topics of lectures will vary by semester.
  • Meetings with supervising physician: Students will meet with a local supervising physician between 6 and 8 times per term to discuss questions and observations.
In addition to the Pre-Med program, students will enroll in sufficient courses (in English, Spanish, or Spanish as a Second Language) to reach full time status. Please note: there is an additional fee to participate in the Pre-Med program, to be paid directly to UPAEP. For further information on this program, please contact the ISEP Program Officer for Mexico.
