Study Abroad in Madrid

What to Expect in Madrid

We dare you to get bored studying abroad in Madrid. 

You can wander around the Plaza Mayor, visit the city’s many churches and cathedrals, enjoy the sunshine in one of Madrid’s many parks, see a Flamenco show, watch a Real Madrid soccer game, taste the city’s unique cuisine, and always see something new when you study abroad in Madrid. 

Take your Spanish language abilities to the next level inside and outside the classroom. Whether you add a part-time internship or courses at a local university to your Madrid study abroad experience, you can open doors of opportunity to meet local professionals, students, and professors. 

Not only is Madrid the capital city of Spain, it’s also the heart of the country. Located in the center of Spain, Madrid is a great starting point to explore this gorgeously diverse country.
