Study abroad in Spain

Four cities, and the unmatched flexibility of our Open Campus Block Network.

The story of Spain includes empire, conquistadors, inquisition – and celebrated figures like Velázquez, Goya, Picasso, Dalí, Almodóvar, and Penelope Cruz. It has been written by Iberians, Celts, Greeks, Phoenicians, Romans, Goths, Moors, Jews, Muslims, and Christians. And now it’s your turn to live and write your own chapter in Spain, with CIEE.

Study for a summer, semester, or year, exploring liberal arts and language, architecture, business, new media, education, and more. Choose the city that most intrigues you most. Maybe it’s Seville, full of spectacle and spirit. Or Madrid, capital of galácticos and gatos – and home to a CIEE Open Campus Block Network center, where you can link study abroad in two additional cities, all in the same semester. You might also choose the sun-drenched Mediterranean citadel of Barcelona or the small medieval town of Alcalá de Henares

In all of these locations, CIEE Spain gives you access to homestays; internships; volunteering opportunities; direct enrollment options; and cultural clubs, activities, and excursions that provide a uniquely immersive international experience. Come write your story of Spain with us.
