Summer in the seat of culture and nature

From large cities such as Barcelona and Madrid to smaller ones such as Granada and Salamanca, Spain is replete with some of best universities in the world. Home to magnificent historical monuments and museums such as the Prado and Alhambra, and seeped in rich culture, Spain makes for a fantastic destination to pursue summer programs. And what better way to make the most of your summer holidays than by enrolling for a student exchange program.

A student exchange program in Spain is a tie-up between educational institutions and organizations of Spain and those of other countries. As part of this collaboration, select students from member countries travel to Spain during their summer holidays to engage in special learning sessions ranging from a couple of days to a few weeks. These may include research-oriented programs and fun lesson modules replete with travel programs across Spain and a couple of other countries. For instance, students of historical studies may be taken across several monuments of Europe for real time learning, with their lessons culminating in a workshop in their host institution in Spain.
