Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

I stayed in the previous Barcelona residence operated by this company that runs BLAU Student Housing and the experience was fantastic, things were always kept tidy and clean and the staff were a lot of fun. The common areas were great to socialize and I met a lot of friends who I still stay in contact with. Happy to hear they are starting a new program, I may go back to Barcelona again this summer just to check it out.
