advantage of this very unique opportunity, you can study Spanish in a
professional and accredited Spanish language school, while enjoying the
freedom and advantages of living in a university residence. Make friends
with both international students, from many different countries, and Spanish
university students, receive meals at the campus cafeteria, and use the
numerous on campus facilities: indoor and outdoor courts for
various sports, a new swimming pool, a library, an interior courtyard,
assembly hall, and common living spaces with television and video.
Pleasant open spaces and gardens located around the residence are great for studying, relaxing, or
spending time with international friends. There is no better way to
immerse yourself completely into Spanish university life.
addition, we are now preparing the
Spanish Course option, which we have been successfully running for many
years in Malaga and Salamanca, for this university campus in Alcala de
Henares for this summer. The unique thing about this course in Alcalá de
Henares is that there will be a program for Spanish youth running
simultaneously onsite. So the students will be mixed with Spanish young students in
social and recreational activities and in the residency. We expect a fun
and fantastic learning experience for all.
