Couldn't imagine my life without this incredible experience. I learned so much about another culture, as well as myself. I got to see and do things I had been dreaming about for years. I will certainly be back to Barcelona many times in the future. - Washington State University View Entire Review
Definitely an extremely worthwhile experience. I learned so much about myself and the world and had the opportunity to do so many cool things - Indiana University of Pennsylvania / IUP View Entire Review
I have learned many things from this experience, it is hard to explain them all. I think most importantly, other than the cultural aspects of Spain and general knowledge about traveling, I learned a lot about myself as a person and what I am looking for further down the line in my life.

I learned so much about the Spanish culture and way of life! Visiting a foreign country for a couple weeks is great, but actually living in and adjusting to the culture for an extended period of time is absolutely life-changing and definitely worth every second! - Auburn University View Entire Review

About

SAI invites students to experience Barcelona's vibrant diversity.

SAI’s partner school, the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), is a dynamic institution with an excellent reputation in Spain and globally. With its roots in the Catalan tradition, UAB offers a unique opportunity for study abroad students to enroll in English-taught courses in the heart of Barcelona. The hub of the study abroad program is at the Sant Pau campus, a stunning display of Catalan Modernist architecture situated in downtown Barcelona.

In addition to supporting students throughout their stay in Barcelona, SAI also coordinates a range of activities and excursions throughout the term, including a weekend trip to Seville, cooking classes, a Flamenco dance demonstration, a Barcelona scavenger hunt, and many others. Students also have access to SAI’s network of partner organizations, allowing them to take part in volunteer activities, as well as language exchange opportunities with local students and families.

SAI students at UAB join a vibrant community of visiting scholars. The majority of study abroad students attending this program at UAB are North Americans, bringing with them a wealth of curiosity about Spain and the local Catalan culture. Students benefit from the cultural richness of Barcelona, attending local events and activities organized by SAI and exploring the city independently. Students quickly find that Barcelona offers endless marvels, from strolling down the Passeig de Gràcia, to enjoying the view from Park Güell, to marveling at the organic architectural shapes of the Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudi’s unfinished masterpiece.

SAI students in Barcelona experience the overlapping cultural currents which flow through Barcelona; from its origins as an ancient Mediterranean settlement, to its unique status as the modern capital of Catalonia. Visiting students immerse themselves in the dynamic entity which is Barcelona and examine the influences which impact this remarkable community, from the local to the global.
