What makes us different

what we offer

Mentors

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 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 Tufts-Skidmore Spain program was an incredible program, because I was able to truly delve in the the Spanish culture, language, and education. I can honestly say those were some of the best three months of my life. I improved my Spanish in many areas, but I also made some lifelong memories in Spain and I am incredibly thankful for that.”

“Quise ir a España desde los 11 años. El programa de Tufts-Skidmore en Alcalá superó mis expectativas y cambió mi vida para mejor. Los directores y profesores del programa me hicieron sentir como en casa. Aún sigo en contacto con la mayoría de las personas que conocí durante mi tiempo en Alcalá. Ahora puedo conversar en español con fluidez y utilizo la lengua con frecuencia en Nueva York. Estoy eternamente agradecida por la oportunidad por haber podido ser parte de este increíble programa.”

“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.”
