Student exchange in the South of Spain

Your High School exchange in Andalusia with Nacel.
Exchange students are hosted in a Spanish host family living in Andalusia and attend regular classes in a local public, concertado or private High School. There are no classes on afternoons during the high school program in Spain; some Spanish high schools offer optional workshops/extra-curricular activities in the afternoon, which may be at an extra cost. Popular sports are Football, Basketball and Nautical sports in some schools. Students attend 10-12 subjects a week. 10th grade offers a good number of mandatory subjects, while 11th and 12th grade offer students to specialize into Science, Social Science or Humanities (as well as Arts in some schools). 

Andalusia is a region full of history and culture: immerse yourself into a true Spanish and Arabic history! The region also offers students the opportunity to enjoy wonderful landscapes: trek in the mountains on the afternoon and swim in the Mediterranean Sea in the afternoon! You will no doubt enjoy this Mediterranean climate allowing you to spend long days outdoors! 

Please note that placements may also be arranged in other locations in Spain. Inquire!

Main subjects of the secondary education are mandatory and cannot be chosen: Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, Physical Education, Plastic and Visual Education, Spanish and Literature, Foreign Language (English), Mathematics, Music, Technology.

During the 2 years of the bachillerato, students should take at least Physical Education, Philosophy, Spanish and Literature, Foreign Language and History. There are 3 more subjects to study, depending on the Spanish high school's offer: Technical Drawing, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Latin, Greek, etc. Each school also offers some optional subjects that may be chosen depending on the interest of the student. The grade and subjects chosen depend on availability at school and on the Principal's decision.

My family is great. I really like it here! In my classes, it is still difficult to understand however, the tutor is great. she helps me a lot with my homework because it is hard to read in subjects like anotomía and filosofía and when I don’t have homework, she helps me with Spanish. As for my spanish, I would'nt say that it is that good yet but it has improved since I have got here… Love, Hannah


After only 3-4 days of adjustment, Cameron has been doing very well. The entire process of arriving and having someone meet him in Seville and drive him to Cadiz was fantastic and much appreciated. The first few days was by Cameron’s own admission were difficult. Adjusting to a new culture, new language and maybe second guessing the decision - I am sure is all very normal and something you see regularly. I can’t say how important it was that Alejandro his local coordinator was there to assist, advise and guide.

Cameron’s host family has been fantastic. I am so pleased that he is with such an engaging and loving family. His host mom sends me pictures and videos occasionally and I really enjoy and appreciate it!  He is becoming quite good friends with his host brother that is now in college in Seville.

It took only a few days after arrival for Cameron to become actively involved in all that Cadiz, his family, school and Alejandro had to offer. Alejandro has helped Cameron with his school and classes, getting him  involved with surfing, arranging the Spanish classes and tutoring and overall being a fantastic mentor and friend. He has also kept me informed which has been nice as well.

For Cameron, it has been Alejandro that has been instrumental in making the program a success so far.

Cameron is now taking an intense Spanish course and we both feel the timing of this class will be perfect. We feel that he is making good progress.

I am happy to say that Cameron is really having a great time. He has met friends, learning a new language, become part of a loving family and is taking full  advantage of this amazing opportunity.  I am very pleased with everything Nacel and your team has done to get him to this great place.

I will keep you posted throughout the year.  Please let me know if you have any parents that need a reference or even advice during the preparation and deciding process of doing the Nacel program in Cadiz
