Past Review The Best Ever
I learned that time is more valuable than money. The things I've learned and experienced through a different culture is something I won't ever forget. - Texas Southern University View Entire Review
I learned about another culture, which made me more aware of my own. I've changed so much in such a short period of time, and I would say that it was definitely worth the risk. All college students should consider incorporating Study Abroad in their curriculum. - University of Texas - San Antonio View Entire Review

My time abroad was incredibly worth it. I've learned so much. I've learned about many different cultures through different travels while aboard and the many people I have met.

Past Review Amazing
This trip was so worthwhile. I grew as a person by being immersed in a culture different than my own. I learned to communicate in a different language, and went out of my comfort zone. - University of Houston View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Sol Education Abroad: Granada - University of Granada
I gained an understanding of how people of another culture live. I learned how to adjust to speaking Spanish all day everyday because my host family spoke zero English. Through traveling so much, I learned how to compromise and stay calm during stressful situations. - University of North Texas View Entire Review
ABSOLUTELY worthwhile! I learned way to much to explain. - Chapman University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Sol Education Abroad: Granada - University of Granada
I learned to appreciate local culture in Granada, even though it was so different than what I experience at home or have experienced in other countries. Every moment was worth it in Granada, no matter what language barrier I encountered, I always learned something from every obstacle! - Eastern Kentucky University View Entire Review
I gained a greater sense of independence. After traveling without the help of my parents and living in a completely different culture, I have much more confidence in myself. While there were times where I definitely wanted to come home, overall I would highly recommend studying abroad. - Texas A&M University - College Station View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Sol Education Abroad: Granada - University of Granada
So so very much! I learned about the culture, the language, really felt like a part of the family with my host family, the city is amazing, my teachers & classes were wonderful! They were so engaging and funny and really introduced the material in a way they don't really take the time to do in the US. There's so much I can say a... - University of California - Davis View Entire Review
I learned to be more independent and have self control especially since my parents were not around. I learned the real importance of knowing Spanish. It was worthwhile and I learned so much and I would like to return . - High School Graduate View Entire Review
That learning a new language is very important. - Texas A&M University - College Station View Entire Review
I learned so much about the culture, the people, and the world in general. It broadened my view of the world and made me appreciate different cultures and the uniqueness we all have. - Texas A&M University - College Station View Entire Review
I learned that if you really want to learn Spanish, or whatever language, you need to go without a program, or be really proactive about meeting locals (going with a program CAN work). - Winona State 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.
