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

“Tufts-Skidmore in Madrid was phenomenal: a vivacious metropolis, enriching in-house classes, wide-reaching support and wonderful host families.  The funds to assist with travel, extracurricular activities and cultural events allowed me to try new things without an inhibiting ticket price.”

Mackenzie, Cailin
“La experiencia del programa de Tufts en Alcalá es única. Podía sumergirme en el encanto y originalidad de una ciudad que refleja el estilo de vida español, el cual ha sido preservado en Alcalá.”



“The Tufts-Skidmore program inspired me to immerse myself in Spanish culture by providing me with a wealth of opportunities to speak the language, meet the locals, and learn as much as I could about Spanish life and history.”
