|Academics and Courses|
|Students can choose from a variety of courses offered in engineering, humanities and social sciences, economics and business administration, and law. Most courses are taught in Spanish so students should have sufficient knowledge of the language. Depending on the department, courses are either offered on the Alberto Aguilera Campus in central Madrid or the Cantoblanco Campus on the outskirts of the city.
The Coordinator for International Relations in each School or Faculty, or the designated tutors, where relevant, will advise students on the selection of subjects and will lend support to them during their stay at the university.

|Since the university does not have its own residence halls, the Universidad Pontificia Comillas collaborates with People Global Relocation (PGR) to provide all services associated with accommodations.
|Exchange students who are from a country outside the European Union must have a valid Passport before arriving in Spain. Those students who do not have Spanish nationality should request a “visado especial de estudiante” (special Student Visa) at the Spanish Embassy or Consulate in their country of origin. In most cases, the student must deliver the application in person (please confirm with the Embassy or Consulate which corresponds to your place of residence).
