Improved my language skills quite a bit but otherwise got little to nothing out of the experience academically. Probably worthwhile - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Study abroad was very worthwhile. I gained independence, adaptability, cultural awareness, appreciation for art from another perspective, significantly better casual language use. The Middlebury program with the language pledge was particularly important to me. - Kenyon College View Entire Review
Yes, very worthwhile. I learned a lot about myself and was able to practice independence and time management while living alone, traveling alone, and being pushed out of my comfort zone to meet people and make new friends in a foreign language. I gained a lot of confidence in my independence. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I definitely improved my Spanish, and I think I grew as a person simply by being in a new place with new people. It was very worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

I both improved my Spanish a lot and getting away from college in the US for a semester really gave me time to get to know myself. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Language improvement. A new sense of autonomy and ability to be independent - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Being in an apartment, I learned how to live on my own. It was worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I gained the ability to converse normally with native Spanish speakers, something I hadn't really been able to do before. I also learned a bit of "adulting" living on my own and basically fending for myself. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile. I met Spanish friends and it absolutely opened my eyesight. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

It was worthwhile, but I didn't learn that much because Europe felt similar enough to the US. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

I feel that I grew a lot as a person, while improving my Spanish. I am now more independent and resilient.

Furthermore, I had the incredible opportunity to travel more than I ever had i... - Middlebury College View Entire Review

Independence, new friends, language skills - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I definitely developed more solid language skills as well as made friendships with many international students.

You're introduced to so many interesting people from different backgrounds. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Yes! I had so much fun exploring a new place and learning about a different culture. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I gained language skills and independence from my experience abroad and got to see lots of amazing things. It was definitely worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
My experience abroad was worthwhile because I had other friends in my program and in Europe and because I learned a great deal about myself and what I want for my future, but not because of the university i was studying at or the academic courses I was taking. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
My language improved vastly, so in that respect yes. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I gained a lot of spanish skills and cultural competency skills as well as life long friends from Spain, the US, and other countries. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

About

Designed for students at an advanced level of Spanish, the program structure of the School in Spain gives students the opportunity to perfect their Spanish competency through guided language immersion and facilitated social and cultural integration.

Located in Andalucía, and with a population of 300,000, Córdoba is a modern Spanish city that blends several centuries of cross-cultural history. Students on the Middlebury program benefit from the unique cultural experience of southern Spain, with its multicultural legacy and history that stems from centuries of Muslim, Christian and Jewish coexistence.

As an historic site where Islam, Christianity, and Judaism coexisted peacefully, the city is home to several legendary buildings, including the world's third-largest mosque, la Mezquita, the Palace of the Jewish Kings, and the ruins of the old Roman temple. Today, Córdoba, is a bustling city with a cultural life that rivals Madrid. Its amazing and diverse restaurants, sidewalk cafes, active nightlife, and large student population all make for an ideal location to experience modern Spain.

The Universidad de Córdoba, Middlebury's host institution, has three campuses that house several different academic departments, with particular strengths in art history, psychology, history, religion, biology, and philology. Its central campus is located in the historic and picturesque heart of Córdoba, blending modern architecture with the ancient city walls.
