From government grants, to university entrance scholarships that are handed out upon sending in the submission admissions application.

Learn the Local Language

This is one of the bigger points for any country. Each country releases a huge amount of ‘language scholarships’ that is dedicated to the students who are currently learning the local language and who intend to pursue a higher education in the cultural history of Cuba.

Each country will have a language proficiency exam to place ethe student in classes where they are familiar with the language. This is a regular occurrence to ensure that the student does not immediately fall behind in their coursework because simply they do not understand the language.

Most universities will place international students into free language programs so the students can begin basic level exercises to help them to learn the local or official language of the country.
