The Study Abroad in Spain program was established in 1987 in order to promote academic collaboration between Spain and the US through specialized educational programs.

The Study Abroad in Spain program is specifically designed for international students who wish to pursue undergraduate studies in Spain.  Our Semester Program runs during the Fall and Spring semesters and students can take up to four courses completing a total of 12 U.S. Undergraduate Credits.

Instituto Franklin-UAH offers an Orientation Session before the program begins, in order to provide students with practical, cultural and academic information to create a smooth transition within a new culture and city.

The Orientation Session provides incoming students with useful and practical information about the Universidad de Alcalá in general and Instituto Franklin-UAH in particular.  It also covers relevant features of the program including academic information, course registration, medical insurance, accommodation, public transportation and cultural and practical information that introduce students to the different aspects of Spanish culture.

Students are also required to take an online language placement test before the beginning of the program.

The orientation includes two guided tours; one that covers the city of Alcalá de Henares and the University, and one that offers a walking tour around the historical center of Madrid, allowing students to experience the transportation system between Alcalá de Henares and Madrid in a facilitated group environment.
