The American University in Spain

Saint Louis University's Madrid Campus delivers a world-class education and will expand your cultural horizons, whether you study with us for four years or just a few months. We welcome students from the United States, Spain and more than 50 other countries to pursue degrees and study abroad. 

An innovator in education, SLU-Madrid is prepared to offer quality American university classes online this summer, delivered by distinguished, international faculty. Students from across the globe will connect in a virtual international learning community. 
To accommodate students from visa-waiver countries such as the United States, SLU-Madrid has implemented a hybrid academic calendar for the fall semester, which combines remote coursework with a stay in Madrid of fewer than 90 days.

In addition to 15 undergraduate and two graduate degree programs that can be pursued entirely in Spain, our Madrid Campus enables students to complete requirements for more than half of Saint Louis University’s nearly 100 degree programs. Students begin their studies in Madrid and then transfer to St. Louis to complete their degrees.
