Combining urban life and a relaxed, seaside atmosphere, Valencia is becoming one of the most popular destinations on the Mediterranean coast. Valencia's old city center is made up of historic buildings, cathedrals, shops, restaurants, and businesses, while in other parts of the city, modern architectural landmarks illustrate Valencia's rich multicultural roots.


Students will be housed in pre-arranged apartments near the Old City.

Program Reviews:
Summer 2016 Participant
I am very appreciative of the chance to see more of the world. I loved getting to take a class abroad and the travel that I did before and after. I will definitely make it a priority going forward to see more new places.

Summer 2016 Participant
They were not extensive, but I spoke with locals because I had a desire to practice speaking Spanish. Seek out areas and people who interest you.

Summer 2016 Participant
I did not have a problem with inclusiveness or discrimination.

Summer 2016 Participant
They were fun, great variety of excursions.

Summer 2016 Participant
The dorm itself was safe and I felt comfortable there. One side of the dorm area was not a very good area so I didn't feel very comfortable walking through there alone. The other side was fine just not a lot to do there.
