Program Overview

Program Description:

SAI invites students to experience Barcelona's vibrant diversity!

SAI’s partner school, the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), is a dynamic institution with an excellent reputation in Spain and globally. With its roots in the Catalan tradition, UAB offers a unique opportunity for study abroad students to enroll in English-taught courses in the heart of Barcelona. The hub of the study abroad program is at the Sant Pau campus, a stunning display of Catalan Modernist architecture situated in downtown Barcelona.

In addition to supporting students throughout their stay in Barcelona, SAI also coordinates a range of activities and excursions throughout the term, including a weekend trip to Seville, cooking classes, a Flamenco dance demonstration, a Barcelona scavenger hunt, and many others. Students also have access to SAI’s network of partner organizations, allowing them to take part in volunteer activities, as well as language exchange opportunities with local students and families.

Summer programs include 3 and 6 week elective program options, as well as a 4 week Spanish Language intensive program. Elective courses include those in Art History, Digital Photography, Business, Management, Marketing, Economics, and many others.

SAI students at UAB join a vibrant community of visiting scholars. The majority of study abroad students attending this program at UAB are North Americans, bringing with them a wealth of curiosity about Spain and the local Catalan culture. Students benefit from the cultural richness of Barcelona, attending local events and activities organized by SAI and exploring the city independently. Students quickly find that Barcelona offers endless marvels, from strolling down the Passeig de Gràcia, to enjoying the view from Park Güell, to marveling at the organic architectural shapes of the Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudi’s unfinished masterpiece.

    Studying abroad with SAI was the best experience of my life. The staff was so friendly and helpful and the activities they planned were super fun. Since SAI was a smaller program, I really got to meet everyone in the group and we became really close friends.
