Course Level Recommendations

ISA offers course level recommendations for the courses listed below. Please note that the course level recommendations are based on the host university course level recommendations and course codes and are only recommendations.

At Veritas University, course codes are composed of two parts: an alpha code indicating the discipline or field of study and a numeric code that indicates the type of course and level. The first number indicates the level or degree of complexity of ongoing research.

  • Courses that start with a 1 are introductory courses or beginner level language acquisition courses.

  • Courses that start with a 2 are courses that require more hours of independent study and are intermediate level language acquisition courses.

  • Courses that start with a 3 are courses that require research and presentations, have field trips or visits requiring reports, and are advanced level language acquisition courses.

  • Courses that start with a 4 have a very similar level to level 3 courses, but usually are "specialty areas" within a discipline. These ISA recommendations are intended to facilitate the determination of course equivalencies by advisers and credential evaluators at participants' U.S. home institutions.

Requests for sample syllabi can be made to your Costa Rica Program Manager.
