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 campus in Madrid, 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

“The program gave me the support I needed to feel comfortable, and the encouragement I needed to break through my comfort zone. Truly an experience of a lifetime.”

“The Tufts-Skidmore program provided me with opportunities to get involved in extracurricular activities and work experience, form lasting relationships with Spanish students and my host family, and gain the fluency to maintain these connections once returning to the US. The Tufts-Skidmore community couldn’t have been a better group with which to share this experience.

“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.”
