Study Abroad - FIU in Spain

Salamanca Program

The FIU in Salamanca program offers students the opportunity to live and study in Salamanca, a charming college town known for its Renaissance and Baroque architecture. The program includes field trips to: the medieval walled city of Ávila; the sixteenth-century El Escorial palace and monastery; León, which has Spain's most beautiful Gothic Cathedral, Segovia, a city with a 2,000-year-old Roman aqueduct, and Madrid, including a guided visit of the Prado, Spain's most important museum.

Salamanca is situated on the Tormes River, 110 miles northwest of Madrid. With a population of 165,000, Salamanca is home to the Catedral Vieja, the first major building from the Middle Ages, the Universidad de Salamanca, Spain’s oldest university, and the Plaza Mayor, at the very center of Salamanca’s social life, where every night hundreds of people gather to listen to the tunas or the student bands that still dress up in Medieval costumes.

All students will stay with Spanish families in Salamanca. The families provide three meals a day as well as weekly laundry service. These home stays give you the opportunity to practice Spanish outside of class, while providing valuable exposure to modern Spanish life.

Classes are open to all levels. All the courses will be taught Monday to Friday for a four-week period. Classes begin at 9:00 a.m. and finish at 1:30 p.m., with breaks in between. Final exams will be on the last day of classes.

Financial aid, student loans and OEA scholarships are available. Please visit the OEA website for more information, please visit the Education Abroad website.
