Overall Experience
I was able to experience another culture without the barrier of my own. I think that is an extremely worthwhile thing to experience, especially for those willing to actually listen to the opinions of the locals. - Arcadia University View Entire Review
Independence Spanish skills Great friends - Temple University View Entire Review
I learned about Spanish culture. It was worthwhile but I wonder if my time would have been better spent by either complete immersion or course more directly applicable to my major. - Rice University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Arcadia: Granada - University of Granada
This program was certainly worthwhile. I met amazing, interesting people, my language skills improved greatly, and Granada is a beautiful, navigable, lively city. There is a fantastic nightlife and many wonderful places nearby to travel to. You are a 1-2 hour bus ride from several beaches and mountain hiking paths. - Tufts University View Entire Review
My overall experience in Granada was amazing, but I would not choose to go again with the same program. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
Yes, I became much more independent, and it made me want to go travel and immerse myself in a different culture after graduation - Tufts University View Entire Review
It was completely worth it. I learned that I can survive in a city where I don't know anyone or the language - Arcadia University View Entire Review
I feel like I learned so much going abroad, it's hard to sum it up in words. I gained a lot more independence, became more confident in myself, and learned so much about the local culture and culture of the region. I loved Spain a lot, and I highly highly recommend it to everyone who's thinking about going there. - Trinity University View Entire Review

Past Review Granada
I loved living in Europe, especially Granada. It was absolutely worthwhile if even just for my use of Spanish, but it was an amazing experience. - Villanova University View Entire Review
It was deifinitely worthwhile. I gained perspective, improved my Spanish, and made lasting friendships. I saw amazing things that frame the world in a new context. I now approach Spanish literature with a new and more profound awareness of the dynamics at play.

It was so worthwhile I decided while I was there to study abroad again the next semester. - Tufts University View Entire Review


Even beginning students of Spanish have heard of Andalusia, a region in southern Spain. It’s a storied, magical place, and the city of Granada is in its heart. It’s a place where you go to find aspects of Spanish culture you read about in class. There is no substitute for actually being there in order to bring these aspects to technicolor life. Centuries of Moorish rule afford a unique diversity to its world-famous architecture and traditions. Modern Granada is a vibrant, affordable university town. This is the perfect place to soak up the culture, learn the language, meet local and international students, and experience the Spanish way of life. The stunning scenery and welcoming local atmosphere make this program a perfect choice for those students interested in Spanish.  This program can accommodate anyone, regardless of proficiency in Spanish, whether beginner, intermediate, or advanced.

Courses are taught at either the Arcadia Granada Center or the Centro De Lenguas Modernas at the Universidad de Granada.

Optional intensive Spanish language pre-session course available.
