In this program facilitated by CIEE, students experience a hybrid of study center classes and Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M). Students may also take non-engineering courses at UC3M such as economics, business administration, international studies, and more. They also have their English language Study Abroad Program (SAP) which focuses on Spanish culture and the Curso de Estudios Hispánicos (CEH) for Spanish language courses. Housing options are either in a homestay, shared apartments, or residence halls.  Studying and living in Spain's largest city offers students many possibilities for soaking up Spanish culture and exploring on your own or in a group.  CIEE staff are onsite to support our students, provide guidance, and provide extra-or co-curricular activities and excursions.  Want to really immerse yourself and get to know the locals?  Ask CIEE about volunteering in the community or consider a language exchange.  Access the UC3M majors and course listings here.
