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

«This has been an amazing year in Spain, and I hope other Smithies will consider studying in Madrid for the wonderful mentor program, outstanding home-stay options, unique class opportunities, and of course the charm of the city itself!»

«The Tufts-Skidmore Spain program is like no other. The experience abroad is so much more than just the classes- it’s the friends you meet and the strangers who become family. Everything you’ve ever wanted to do or learn was an option with the help from the program staff. I wouldn’t trade my experience abroad for anything!»

«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.»

I was excited to explore some Spanish shows and movies, especially because one of my goals was to immerse myself in the culture and try to understand its idioms, inside jokes, stereotypes, etc. […]
