Academic Credit

Credit will be awarded at MSU for all courses taken and passed at the Polytechnic University of Valencia. The student's academic advisor at MSU and the MSU Registrar, in consultation with the Office of International Programs, will determine how these credits will apply to degree course requirements. Students are urged to work closely with these offices prior to departure to plan a course of studies that will maintain steady progress toward their degree.


The Public University of Navarra is located in Pamplona, the capital city of Navarre, a region in Northern Spain that shares a border with France.  Pamplona is a lively student city of 200,000 that is well known for its San Fermin festival and bull runs in July.  Pamplona's origins began as prominent Roman town during the 2nd century that was later controlled by the Visigoths and the Moors.  During the Middle Ages, the Kingdom of Navarre reached great splendor and was an important stop for thousands of pilgrims traveling to Santiago de Compostela.  Today students can revel in Pamplona's rich cultural heritage and enjoy the city's plentiful parks and gardens.  The city's numerous parks make it one of the largest "green cities" in Europe.  Just one hour away from ski slopes and the beach, Pamplona offers a variety of outdoor activities including hiking, skiing, and climbing.
