The program details

Students select one of six academic tracks and enroll in one, two, or three six-week blocks, taking two courses during each block. This program gives students the flexibility to stay in Madrid for all or part of their time abroad, or add study at other CIEE Global Institutes for a one-of-a-kind comparative learning experience.

Classes are held at the CIEE Global Institute near Puerta del Sol. The Institute includes classrooms, a lounge, Wi-Fi, and experienced staff that support day-to-day life in Madrid. Most courses are taught in English by CIEE faculty.

Our strong relationships with Madrid’s most-respected universities and research institutions allows us to offer top-quality courses, taught by local faculty. A core group of CIEE faculty members serve as professors and help coordinate academic projects. Working with CIEE resident staff, faculty arrange guest lectures, excursions, activities, and more.

Academics

Academics

  • CLASS FORMAT

    Courses taught at the CIEE Global Institute are typically for CIEE students only. Classes are scheduled Monday-Friday and meet either two, three, or four times per week, and attendance is strictly enforced both for classes and required co-curricular excursions. Students should expect an average of two hours of preparation required for each hour in class. Instruction is supported and augmented online by our learning management system, Canvas. University courses are open to Spanish and other international students.

  • GRADING

    The U.S. grading scale of A-F is used. Students are graded on the basis of attendance, class participation, homework, project work, presentations, and mid-term and final examinations. Learning outcomes assessment is continuous through personal reflections, evaluation feedback, self-assessment, and requirements as set out in course syllabi.

  • ACADEMIC CULTURE

    Each six-week course is a full semester in content, so the pace is accelerated and the workload is demanding. CIEE courses are designed to follow U.S. academic culture and standards. The class environment typically features a combination of traditional lecture and discussion with co-curricular excursions and activities. Heavy emphasis is placed on student participation. To avoid falling behind, students should not plan personal travel out of Madrid when classes are in session and plan trips for the long weekends in between blocks.

Eligibility

  • OVERALL GPA

    Students need to have a GPA of at least 2.5
