Program Description:
Spain Banner

Perfecting Spanish competency through guided language immersion and facilitated social and cultural integration is what motivates students at the School in Spain. Well in advance of leaving the U.S., students are encouraged to reflect upon how they want to achieve their goals while in Spain; once in Spain, students work with staff to find ways of integrating into the Spanish language and culture by exploring their own interests.

Getafe is a city of 100,000 located just 20 minutes south of Madrid by train.  Its proximity allows students enrolled at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Middlebury's host institution, to experience Spanish university life while still benefiting from the cultural and social attractions of the capital.  Students typically live in Madrid and commute to campus each day by train.


The Universidad Carlos III is housed on a small campus just a few minutes walk from the Getafe train station. Students enroll directly in classes with their Spanish peers in art history, economics, geography, history, law, philosophy, and political science.
