Program Description

Launched in fall 2015, the University of Delaware World Scholars Program is an innovative program for selected, high-achieving undergraduate students wishing to become educated as global citizens. Supplementing students' undergraduate degree program of choice, the program provides learning environments and opportunities that foster cross-cultural understanding, an appreciation for global community, and richer understanding of foreign affairs issues. A hallmark of the program is two education abroad opportunities, including first-semester freshman year.

Students enrolling as UD World Scholars for fall 2016 will have the opportunity to begin their studies in Rome, Italy or Madrid, Spain. Scholars heading to Spain will experience their first semester as freshmen enrolled in UD courses at our partner institution, St. Louis University - Madrid.

Madrid, Spain’s capital, is an extraordinary city. One that features spectacular fountains, grand boulevards, and a maze of streets. A city that boasts the world’s finest art museums, most loyal fútbol fans, and late-night dinners. It’s a cultural crossroads—founded on the Moorish fortress that has become a modern-day, trend-setting melting pot, Spain’s political and economic engine.

And Saint Louis University’s Madrid Campus—SLU-Madrid—is an extraordinary place. As the international campus of Saint Louis University, you will be studying with students from over 60 different countries. SLU-Madrid students will expect you to learn about their cultures and ways of thinking. And they will learn from you.

Courses are taught by SLU-Madrid's approximately 40+ international faculty. Instructional methods and grading are based on the U.S. system. Instruction takes place in English except for Spanish (SPAN) courses. UD students will co-enroll in "Introduction to Global Politics" together and may then choose additional options from a menu of recommended courses. Some of the courses include out-of-class experiences around Madrid (and beyond) to take advantage of the city’s historic and artistic resources, which may require an additional fee. All students must maintain full-time status, and must work with UD staff to modify their schedules.

UD World Scholars will live in a privately-run residence hall, "El Faro," located within a 10-minute walk of SLU-Madrid's campus. Scholars will reside on the same floor in double rooms, with other Scholars as roommates, and will have an upperclass residence assistant living on the same floor with them. A dining hall is located within El Faro, in which students will be able to enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Lunch may also be eaten, weekdays, on the campus of SLU-Madrid. Room and board is included in the UD tuition bill.

Students in this program will also benefit from the time and expertise of additional staff in Madrid who will serve as staff support to the students and as a liaison between the University of Delaware and faculty and staff at SLU-Madrid. This staff member will also gather students on a regular basis and will provide ongoing communication regarding planned excursions and special opportunities that take advantage of this incredible geographic location.

The Program Fee includes housing, medical insurance, some meals, airport transfers in Madrid, orientation week activities, numerous excursions throughout the fall, opening and closing celebrations, and full access to all SLU-Madrid facilities and activities. It does not include the cost of a Spanish visa or Permit to Stay; students should budget approximately $200 for these documents.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare. The program officially begins when students arrive in Madrid on August 27. For planning purposes only, airfare is estimated at $1,400. Students who wish to travel with a University of Delaware representative should purchase the following recommended tickets via Student Universe or on their own:

  • 8/30/2017, American Airlines #740, departs PHL 6:35 p.m. & arrives MAD 8/31. 8:05 a.m.
  • 12/21/2017, American Airlines #741, departs MAD 1:05 p.m. & arrives PHL 3:55 p.m.
