Overall Experience
I gained and learned an unimaginable amount of knowledge that will guide me through life and change my perspective on the world forever.

About

Come explore Madrid, the contemporary capital of Spanish culture, finance, and industry. A large, international and cosmopolitan city, Madrid is a city of possibilities. You won't get board with Madrid's incredible monuments and museums, including the Museo del Prado, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Museo de la Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando. Visitors cannot miss the Iglesia de San Isidro, once the cathedral of Madrid, or the Palacio Real. Madrid is also known for its fountains and elaborate parks, including the glorious Parque del Retiro. The energy of Madrid is in its street life and warm people. To study in Madrid is to experience more than a classroom – it is to experience the history of Spain and its people. API gives students the chance to live and learn in this fast-paced capital city.

  • Business, Liberal Arts, and Sciences: This program is designed for students who wish to study abroad in Madrid primarily in English, while still having the option of taking some courses in Spanish.
