Courses are complemented by the opportunity to experience the society and culture of the Basque Country through personal interaction with local students and field trips to sites of social, historic, artistic, and economic interest. A local university student will be available to become your conversation partner, which is an excellent way to make friends and become integrated into the community.
The Bilbao/Getxo program is ideal for students who wish to develop an international business career and/or a bilingual career. You may stay for one semester or a full year and focus on studying Spanish Language and Cultural Studies or International Business. Our intensive language approach allows you to complete one to three courses of university foreign language in only one semester, depending on your primary focus for the semester. The program also offers the opportunity to do internships.
Program fees include tuition, health insurance, student orientation, and entry to some museums and cultural events.
- Setting Description:
- Bilbao is located in the north of Spain near the French border and has an international airport with direct flights to most large cities in Europe. Both Bilbao and Getxo (where the housing placements are located) are situated in an area of beautiful green mountains that face the ocean, making it possible to hike in the morning and go swimming in the afternoon. Close by, there are several picturesque coastal towns with great beaches that are easily accessible by public transportation.
