N.U.in Costa Rica operates as a cohort program, meaning students take courses with other N.U.in students only. The courses are developed by ICDS and their professors, and focus on aspects of the society by which students are surrounded. All classes are conducted in English, with the exception of the Spanish language course. In addition to the 1-credit Global Experience course, all students are enrolled in Spanish, based on their proficiency level. Students who wish to participate in the N.U.in Costa Rica program are not required to have any previous knowledge of Spanish, as proficiency exams are administered upon arrival in Costa Rica to determine Spanish language level.
