I am very pleased that you are interested in applying to the University of Salamanca, Spain ‘Program in Language and Culture’. The year of 2013 will mark 24 years that we have been taking students (over 800 to date) to the University of Salamanca for summer study. Imagine living in the midst of one of the most beautiful cities of Spain unmatched in monuments and the arts. Concerts, art exhibits, hundreds of cafes, Flamenco, lively dance clubs, theatre, movies, the Tour de France, beautiful weather, excursions within Spain, including one to Portugal, and so much more awaits you.
The University of Salamanca, founded in 1218, is known as the ‘Oxford’ of Spain. It will fire your imagination to stroll in the same streets where so many illustrious figures have walked—Miguel Unamuno, Teresa of Jesus, Cervantes, Columbus, Fray Luis de León, and Antonio de Nebrija. Now it will be your turn to leave your mark and be changed forever.
The Centro Fray Luis de León has no financial aid arrangements with any institution, but of course students may, on their own, seek financial aid from any source. Students will receive an official transcript with letter grades from the University of Salamanca that will be sent to your home institution to grant you credit.
Also, the Centro Fray Luis de Leon has formal agreements with Cursos Internacionales of the University of Salamanca.
I am here to answer any of your questions and to help you in your application process. I look forward to hearing from you.
