Universidad Pública de Navarra is located in Pamplona, the historic capital city of the Navarra region in northern Spain. Pamplona is well known for its San Fermin Festival (running of the bulls) which takes place in July each year. The city is also an important stop along the Camino de Santiago, a pilgrimage route from the middle ages that is still in use today. The campus itself is located near the city center, and students can easily explore by foot all that Pamplona has to offer.

UPNA prides itself on its socially driven mission and commitment to providing quality higher education. The UPNA has been appointed as an international campus of excellence, reflecting a commitment to innovation and collaboration.

ISEP students immerse themselves in Spanish culture by taking university classes with local students and living in a shared apartment in the community or in a residence hall on campus. The university has an active student body, and ISEP students can participate in sports teams, cultural activities and student groups. Students also have an opportunity to complete an internship, volunteer or participate in a research project while studying at UPNA. The university also has a "buddy system" to help connect ISEP students with local students as they adjust to life in Pamplona!


Students will receive a combined monthly housing and meal stipend. The UPNA Office of International Relations maintains a list of available accommodations including shared student apartments and the on-campus residence hall and assists students in finding appropriate housing. While housing assistance is provided, students are ultimately responsible for arranging their own housing. 

Shared student apartments are the most popular housing option for students at UPNA, including ISEP students. There are a large number of apartments available for rent located in different parts of the city, and it usually does not take much time to find accommodation. While the residence hall is available to ISEP students, please note that due to its location and the additional services provided, the residence hall is a more expensive housing option that will not be fully covered by students' ISEP stipend. 

Please note the first stipend takes two to three weeks to disburse. Students should have sufficient funds to cover expenses during this initial period (housing and meals, housing deposit, etc.) and budget accordingly. The first stipend payment will include benefits beginning from students' arrival date. All ISEP students will be expected to budget their housing and meal stipend to pay monthly rent and purchase groceries and meals. Students can ask their ISEP Student Services Coordinator for tips, as well as checking out ISEP's resources for Budgeting for Study Abroad

Other Academic Conditions

Students should only select courses from the Arrosadia campus. The Tudela campus is 100km from Pamplona and is closed to ISEP students.

Students must register for a minimum of 24 ECTS and a maximum of 30 ECTS. 1 ECTS = 0.5 U.S. credits, so a 6 credit course in Spain is equivalent to a 3 credit course in the U.S. Your home university ultimately determines credit conversion.

All students planning to take courses in Spanish must submit a Language Evaluation with at least a B1 level in Spanish.

Non-native English-speakers taking courses in English must submit a Language Evaluation with at least a B2 level in English and at least an A1 level in Spanish. 

Native English-speakers taking all courses in English must submit a Language Evaluation showing at least an A1 level in Spanish.
