What makes us different

what we offer

Spanish Peer Mentors

Your Spanish mentor will be a university student, your age, who will be there for you throughout your time in Spain. Your mentor will organize activities, travel with you, and support you as you navigate your new surroundings.  Our peer mentor program is rated by our students as one of the best things about Tufts-Skidmore in Spain and 100% effective in helping them to make Spanish friends and to understand and integrate into Spanish life.

Intercultural Mentoring

We will offer you ongoing intercultural mentoring and training throughout your semester/year, designed to enhance your ability to act competently and ethically in response to cultural difference. Our program operates on the belief that in addition to acquiring culture-specific knowledge about Spain and its peoples, you should also develop general intercultural/global citizen skills and attitudes that can eventually be transferred into the professional sphere.

Diverse Academic Choices

Take classes at local universities alongside Spanish peers, enroll in innovative program classes offered at the beautiful Tufts-Skidmore campuses in Madrid and Alcalá de Henares, study at prominent art and dance academies: You choose! No matter how you decide to structure your academic experience, we will encourage you to use the knowledge gained in the classroom to become more informed global citizens and to expand your intercultural horizons.

What Our Students say

“Madrid was an incredible experience. Not only did this program make me fall in love with Madrid by allowing me to become completely immersed in Spanish speaking culture but it also helped me meet so many amazing people and feel well supported throughout my explorations in Spain.”

“I marveled at how close is Spain to Africa. I learned a lot about Al-Andalus and the relationships between the Spanish, French, and Africans, and between Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.”

“I look back on my time with Tufts in Madrid as one of the most transformative experiences of my Tufts career. Walking the streets of Spain is one of the most idyllic things anyone could ever have the pleasure of doing.”

    Farley, mi estudiante

    ROBERTO MUÑOZ- Me ha costado un poco ponerme a escribir algunas palabras para el blog de Tufts-Skidmore Spain, pero era inexcusable hacerlo, después de todo lo que mi estudiante (Farley) ha dicho de mí en este foro, elogios que yo no sé si merezco. En todo caso, se lo agradezco un montón porque eso hace […]
