Add the atmosphere of a university town and the hospitality and charm of a small city and you have Salamanca. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988, Salamanca is the most important university city in Spain and is known for its contributions to Spanish language education.
The program is closely linked to the academic and social life of the Universidad de Salamanca (USAL), the oldest university in Spain and one of the most prestigious in Europe. Learn alongside your Spanish peers by enrolling in at least one class at USAL or the Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca (UPSA). Regardless of your major, you may combine your interests in linguistic and cultural proficiency with your academic pursuits.

Stroll through Salamanca's Old City (a UNESCO World Heritage Site!), and you'll get lost in the beauty of the aged architecture, like the Baroque styling of the Plaza Mayor in the heart of the city. Many people flock to this university town because Salamancans' Spanish is one of the easiest to understand, making it easy for you to communicate and experience a full immersion into the Spanish culture.
