Study Abroad - FIU in Spain

Salamanca Program

The FIU in Spain program offers students the opportunity to live and study in Salamanca, a charming college town known for its Renaissance and Baroque arquitecture. The program includes field trips to Segovia, with a 2,000-year old Roman aqueduct; León, which has Spain's most beautiful Gothic cathedral; Burgos, with the Museum of Human Evolution, unique in its kind; Madrid, visiting El Prado, Spain's most important museum; and to the campo charro, a countryside excursion.

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 Study Abroad scholarships are available. To view the university's Study Abroad place, click here.
