Location Home of the 10pm dinner time, Madrid is known for its nightlife, which can mean you will have plenty of opportunities to socialize, but can spell trouble for the easily distracted student.
Madrid is a great location for students who want to have access to tons of historical and modern museums and cultural celebrations.
Academics This exchange offers an educational experience that allows U of A undergraduates in Walton and Engineering to experience the lifestyle, business and culture of Spain for a semester or year, while keeping on track to graduate from the U of A.
Students interested in economics, in particular, will find a large variety of English-language courses to choose from.
As with all exchanges, you will be largely independent during your exchange, but there is a thriving Erasmus student group (the students on exchange from other parts of Europe) that will offer opportunities to engage with other students and there are support offices available at the Getafe campus for you.
