Program Overview

Program Description:

Take a gap year in Spain! API offers year- and semester-long gap programs in four locations within Spain: Barcelona, Madrid, Salamanca, and Seville. In all locations, API gap students will have the chance to study the Spanish language and culture, with classes taught in Spanish (and English in some locations). All students will take university-level courses for college credit. Throughout the semester, students will also be able to participate in cultural activities and excursions, which will provide greater insight into the Spanish way of life.


Gap students in Seville are also offered a unique opportunity to participate in a customized, professional internship abroad. This 8-Week Fixed Date Internship is a full time internship with a local company or organization, with an option for college credit. This program is great for students who are looking to gain work experience or exploring a new career option for the future. 

Setting Description:
Wherever you choose to study in Spain, you will be sure to notice that there is not just one Spain but many, and the differences are evident wherever you look: in language, culture and artistic traditions, in landscapes and cityscapes, attitudes and politics.
