Madrid, Spain—Study Abroad
This program is offered through the University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC) at La Universidad Rey Juan Carlos. The Universidad Rey Juan Carlos is a young, public university with about 10,000 students distributed among four campuses. USAC classes are held at the campus located in the Vicálvaro neighborhood and are easily accessible via the subway.
The campus combines old and modern buildings and has a new, modern library, along with a gym and two student cafeterias. Green areas and an active student body make it an ideal place for students to find the interaction necessary for successful learning of the Spanish language and culture.
Madrid is a city of great cultural and political importance. It is one of the liveliest capital cities in Europe and boasts some of the finest art museums in the world. Its location in central Spain makes it a good starting point for any trip to other Spanish cities (i.e. Cordova, Seville, Barcelona, Valencia) or neighboring countries (i.e. France, Portugal). There are many buses and trains that connect Madrid with these destinations and beyond. Morocco is also within easy reach, located just across the Strait of Gibraltar.
Spanish and European Studies are taught in English and Spanish and Spanish Language courses are offered. See USAC for complete list of options.
