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 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

“Tufts-Skidmore in Spain provided me with an immense variety of opportunities to improve my Spanish in both classroom and social settings, as well as the freedom to explore the incredible culture of Madrid.”

“The Tufts-Skidmore Spain program supported the opening of my world in many ways. Between dance, my internship at Los Carpinteros, English conversation classes, the Autónoma, and my host family, I was given the opportunity to weave my own story into Madrid while experiencing immersion into many types of lifestyles and perspectives.”

“My semester with Tufts-Skidmore in Spain was the most rewarding experience I have chosen to be a part of. Even after reading all the material about the program, I could never have expected the true family I was stepping into and the memories I was soon to make. The program provides professors, staff and host families that care deeply about their work, something that is evident from the moment you step in the door at the program center and something I have felt every day in class. If you are looking for a second family in Spain, this program is for you.”
