About the City

Alicante

If sunny days, white sand beaches, café culture, and a city rich in art and history sound appealing, Alicante will not disappoint. Nestled on Spain's Costa Blanca, this small city offers green parks, winding streets lined with tapas bars, and first-class educational opportunities at the University of Alicante, all in a pedestrian- and student-budget-friendly setting. Reliable public transportation, including a fast-speed train and international airport, makes it easy to explore this gorgeous region, as well as other Spanish and European cities. Whatever Alicante study abroad adventure you choose, Spanish language, internships, service learning, and volunteer opportunities are available to enrich your experience.

About the Country

Spain

From Goya to Picasso, the Moors to the Conquistadors, this country’s diverse regional culture and history allow you to experience the Spain of your choosing. Whether you’re dreaming of exploring ancient Arabic palaces in Granada, immersing into Spanish language in Seville, soaking up the Mediterranean sun in Alicante, engaging in Madrid’s lively art scene, or getting to know vibrant, quirky Barcelona, you’ll find a study abroad experience you’ll never forget in Spain.
