This adventure into language learning through science and technology takes place during the first two weeks of July.

Why Study in the Summer? 

Madrid is lively all year round, particularly in the summertime. Good weather means outdoor festivals and concerts, ample opportunities to explore its expansive parks and gardens and alluring day trips to nearby nature reserves or Spain’s most emblematic cities. Cultural programming kicks it up a notch in the summer, assuring your time outside of the classroom is enriching and engaging. And if you’re a non-traditional study abroad major or student athlete, we’ve got you covered.
