The Georgetown University en Salamanca Program offers its students two programs: Direct Matriculation into classes at one or both partner universities (the Universidad de Salamanca and the Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca) and Language and Culture classes through the office of Cursos Internacionales at the Universidad de Salamanca. Direct Matriculation students may stay a full academic year or Spring semester. They must register in a minimum of 5 classes and 15 hours of instruction at the host universities. Students receive assistance with matriculation and an introduction to academic culture in Salamanca during the week-long orientation program. Throughout the semester, students receive continuing academic, language and cultural adaptation support and advising, some obligatory and some optional. Language students stay for one semester (September - December or March - June) to take language and culture classes. During the first month, intermediate through superior level students' daily schedule consists of 2 hours of language and 1 hour of Spanish culture, while beginners take 3 hours of language instruction. During the subsequent trimester, all students take 5 hours of instruction per day, 2 of which must consist of a language intensive. The remaining three daily hours are language and culture electives. Language students may request optional tutorials to support their language progress. They receive support in the area of cultural adaptation. Cultural activities and excursions aim to assist students in deepening their knowledge of Spanish culture. To this end, the program also incorporates Spanish mentor students in program events and supports students in finding local volunteer and extra-curricular activities.
