Overview

Salamanca is the oldest college town in Spain, and one of the oldest in the world since the year 1218. The summer of 2018 will mark the 8th Centennial of the Universidad de Salamanca, which will bring a myriad of cultural events for students to enrich more culturally. The whole city is the perfect scenario for language immersion due to the dominating academic atmosphere, its well-known cultural offer, convenient location in the central region of Spain, safety and size of the city, where pretty much everything is within walking distance. The language school ISLA, a very well known and internationally awarded language school, offers a variety of courses, adjusting to the needs of each student, with a guaranteed maximum number of 5 students per classroom and very seasoned teachers.

Unlike previous years, there will be a 5th week dedicated to only traveling from Salamanca in north central Spain, to the southern cities of Mérida, Sevilla, Málaga, Granada, Toledo, and eventually Madrid. This will give participants the chance to discover some to the most important sites of Spain’s historical heritage and to learn about the different peoples that lived in the Iberian Peninsula.

The seven colleges at Missouri State University are pleased to announce their respective Study Away Scholarships. A scholarship fund has been established by MSU’s President, International Programs, and the respective college to assist students with their study abroad. Search available college scholarships here!
