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

“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.”

“If I can give you any advice, it’d be to do the Tufts-Skidmore Spain study abroad program! Madrid is a magical city filled with loving and caring people and beautiful culture. The staff are incredible and truly want to help you have the best experience possible. The classes are so interesting and really engaging! Go to Madrid to have the semester of a lifetime!”

“I marveled at how close is Spain to Africa. I learned a lot about Al-Andalus and the relationships between the Spanish, French, and Africans, and between Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.”
