Overall Experience
I learned an enormous amount by being exposed and immersed in the culture while in Spain. I gained insight and information about their culture that I would have never gotten to know and learn about without physically going there. It was definitely worthwhile! - Eastern Illinois University View Entire Review
I learned how to think about Spanish--priceless - Western Washington University View Entire Review
Definitely worth while. I got to dip my feet into a new, beautiful culture that welcomed me with open arms. The experiences of being put outside my comfort zone is exactly what I needed to start me in the right direction of continuing my Spanish education. - Western Washington University View Entire Review
Past Review Phenomenal!
I learned how to adapt to a different lifestyle and culture, I learned how to speak a different language, and I met a lot of new great people who I will keep in contact with forever. Overall my experience abroad was very worthwile. - Western Washington University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about the culture, and gained a lot of friends. Definitely worthwhile. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
Yes. I learned a lot about the culture, and was able to become fluent in the language. I saw some of the most amazing things that I wouldn't have experienced if I had not gone on the trip, and was able to really see what Spain was like. - Western Washington University View Entire Review
I gained knowledge of the Spanish language and how to be respectful in a country that's not your own. Also, how it feels to have a language barrier and being completely lost. Back in the U.S. I have gained patience for those studying abroad at my own university. In the future I want to return to Europe to continue my voyage. - Western Washington University View Entire Review
This trip was extremely worthwhile. I became more comfortable and more fluent in my Spanish, and I learned a great deal about Spanish people, food, and culture. I gained a new perspective of the world as well and recognized how much I take for granted as being universal when it's not. - University of North Dakota View Entire Review
Yes, it was a worthwhile trip. I learned about the culture and customs of another culture. It was amazing to compare the human interaction differences and similarities. Despite the language differences, people are more alike than you think. - Kansas State University View Entire Review
I have learned a lot about the many differences between American/South American Spanish, and the Spanish of Castilla. The differences between both have increased my knowledge that I will eventually relay to my students as a Spanish teacher. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
I learned alot about people outside of America. While living with different people from different countries, I was able to get wellrounded experience. - Frostburg State University View Entire Review
it was worthwhile, although i experienced some tough situations it helped me grow and made me a better person. I understood a little more about Spanish culture and the people. - SUNY - Binghamton View Entire Review
Past Review
My study abroad experience was absolutely worthwhile. I gained so much from it (besides a little bit of weight). I learned to relax and go with the flow, how important it is to make connections with your host family or people that are bending over backwards for you, a stronger American identity, more appreciation of my home univ... - SUNY - Binghamton View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with University of Salamanca: Salamanca - Direct Enrollment/Exchange
I learned so much. More about Spanish culture, history and the language. I feel like I gained another perspective of the world, the thinking in Spain is different and I learned the different customs and social norms. It has changed me, and I don't necessarily mind the change. It showed me that there are so many beautiful places ... - Western Washington University View Entire Review

Traveling confidence, confidence in immersing myself in a new setting with a language barrier. Yes- worthwhile - Western Washington University View Entire Review
I learned how mature and capable I am. It was worthwhile. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
It was worthwhile. It really was. With a different director, this would have been one of the best experiences of my life. Of that I have no doubt. - Western Washington University View Entire Review
Spanish confidence. The people were wonderful, and I will definately go back again - Western Washington University View Entire Review
Past Review Spain
Yes, but a different program would have been more beneficial. - Western Washington University View Entire Review
My experience was worthwhile because I learned to think from a different perspective as well as practiced my communication skills in the native language. - Kansas State University View Entire Review
It was a fun experience with some ups and downs. Its always interesting seeing other parts of the world. - Kansas State University View Entire Review
I learned to be self sufficient. I was on planes and trains and buses all the time. It taught me to be very independent while I was travelling. - Hartwick College View Entire Review
Definitely! It was a real awakening. I did miss the constitution and all the freedoms that I have here in the USA, but learning and living abroad was an awesome experience that every student should try. - University of Texas - Pan American View Entire Review
This program has really helped me realize that I just love traveling and learning about other cultures. I want my future career to include lots of travel to different parts of the world. - SUNY - Binghamton View Entire Review

About

The University of Salamanca which, in 2018, will celebrate its 800th Anniversary, is the oldest University in Spain and also one of the oldest in Europe. Its historic character led to its playing a stellar role during the Renaissance. In its lecture halls it led the development of the Spanish language and of international law. New visions of the economy during the dawn of capitalism coincided with traditional studies of theology. The University of Salamanca was present in the intellectual discussion which led to the justification of the conquest of the Native Americans but also of the rights of their people. Its vocation and momentum spread to the other side of the Atlantic, decisively contributing to the founding of American Universities. Its statutes as well as its faculty served as an unavoidable frameworks for them. This extroverted character, with the passage of time, was converted into a stamp of identity which outwardly projected its concern for the spread of Spanish as a Universal language and its desire for openness towards the world, its people and their problems. This legacy has turned into what is now one of the most International Universities in the world.
