Study Abroad with Tufts-Skidmore Spain

Full-year and semester options available! Live in vibrant Madrid or in the intimate setting of Alcalá de Henares.

What makes us different

what we offer


Your 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 Spain and 100% effective in helping them to make local 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 Spain 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

“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.”

“If I can give you any advice, it’d be to do the Tufts-Skidmore Spain study abroad program! Madrid is a magical city filled with loving and caring people and beautiful culture. The staff are incredible and truly want to help you have the best experience possible. The classes are so interesting and really engaging! Go to Madrid to have the semester of a lifetime!”

“Stepping off the plane I felt excitement, nervousness, and fear. Without the help and support of the staff, it would have been impossible for me to get as much out of my abroad experience. Between acclimating us to a foreign culture, offering interesting classes, and fostering a nurturing environment at our program center, the staff helped me optimize my time abroad.”
