It was definitely worthwhile because I learned a lot. I got to experience the real Spanish culture and loved it.

I will definitely go back... - Texas A&M University - College Station View Entire Review

Perspective on life and the world. Yes. - University of California - Los Angeles / UCLA View Entire Review
I learned so much about myself and the world around me. There is so much more to life than your little bubble. I learned about a different culture and learned a different language. I also learned how to adapt new surroundings. It was totally worth while. - Texas A&M University - College Station View Entire Review
I would study abroad all the time if I could. I learned that as much as a plan for everything to go smoothly, life just laughs and says "nope" and you still have to deal with things, and you can either handle it gracefully and continue to enjoy yourself and your time in the beautiful cities you travel to or let it get you down. ... - University of North Texas View Entire Review
I learned a lot about the Spanish culture and the Spanish language which, ultimately, was my goal for the trip. I became more confident in my Spanish speaking skills and took several steps forward to becoming fluent. My experience abroad was very worthwhile. - Viterbo University View Entire Review

About

Granada is one of the most ancient and diverse cities in Spain. Explore the narrow, cobblestoned streets of the former Muslim quarter, the Albaicin, wander the passageways of the Alhambra, or enter the white-washed caves of the Gypsies and experience the passion of a flamenco performance. Here you will study at the prestigious University of Granada’s Center of Modern Languages (the CLM), located in one of Granada's most historic neighborhoods, the Realejo. Walking to class you will pass through winding cobblestone streets and hidden plazas. Classes are taught in two historic buildings dating to the 16th century. Classes are offered in English and Spanish and in a variety of disciplines. Granada is the perfect location due to its unique culture, wonderful student vibe, and relaxed atmosphere. In addition to the academics, we include cultural activities on the weekdays, and excursions to different parts of the country on the weekends. Internships are available for those students who stay a semester or academic year. You will live with one of our carefully selected homestays.
