Universidad de Alicante
Spanish Studies students in Alicante study onsite at Universidad de Alicante (UA). Though established in 1979, UA was founded to carry on the traditions of the University of Orihuela (1545-1834). As the fastest-growing university in Spain, with an enrollment of 33,000, the UA is dedicated to its mission to cultivate students' academic and professional skills, while developing critical thinking and social awareness. In addition to its academics, UA prides itself on its beautiful modern campus of innovative architecture and wide green spaces.
Along with the resources provided by UA, Spanish Studies students benefit from having an on-site Resident Director who teaches the Spanish Studies cultural integration course Social Realities of Spain assists students with cultural and logistical challenges of studying abroad, and organizes Spanish Studies Abroad site visits and events.
Through university coursework, homestays with native families, and multiple cross-cultural opportunities, students will find Spanish Studies Abroad in Alicante to be a highly immersive and integrated study abroad experience.
Universidad de Alicante is one of the most beautiful campuses in Spain. Located twenty minutes outside the city's center and from the coast, it is a great location to take classes and become immersed in local alicantino culture:
