Our academic program is located at IE University, housed in a historic building dating from the 15th century.  All courses are taught in Spanish to classes of exclusively CSB/SJU students. The famous museums, monuments, churches and historic sites are used as "classrooms" by the program's professors. The on-site excursions are designed to be an integral part of experiential learning.

Participants will live individually in Spanish homes. Students will be provided with their meals (three meals a day, seven days per week) when in their Spanish home. This arrangement for meals in their Spanish home for the duration of the academic program is included in the cost of the program; however, on long excursions students will be responsible for their meals.

Financial Considerations

During a semester abroad, CSB/SJU students pay the same tuition as if on campus. Instead of paying CSB/SJU Housing and Meal Plan, all students studying abroad pay an Education Abroad Program Fee.  Find Program Fee information on the CSBSJU-Global Portal

Students should plan early for a successful study abroad experience.  Financial aid and scholarships may be available to help with the program costs, but must be searched out well in advance.
