Program Notes
Program Description

Study in Barcelona, the capital city of the autonomous community of Catalonia in Spain, and home to nearly 5 million people in its metropolitan area. Barcelona is the largest metropolis on the Mediterranean Sea, located on the coast between the mouths of the rivers Llobregat and Besòs, and bounded to the west by the Serra de Collserola mountain range. Founded as a Roman city, but besieged several times during its history, Barcelona has a rich cultural heritage and is today an important cultural center and a major tourist destination. Particularly renowned are the architectural works of Antoni Gaudí and Lluís Domènech i Muntaner, which have been designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The city is known for hosting the 1992 Summer Olympics, as well as world-class conferences and expositions, and also many international sport tournaments.

Students interested in business administration will find the Barcelona semester especially enriching, though the wide variety of courses in art, political science, and other disciplines makes it attractive to many students and open to all. Instruction takes place in English except for Spanish courses, or unless otherwise noted. Classes are offered by the Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona (UAB) and are attended by international students of various backgrounds.

Though not required, students are highly encouraged to enroll in at least one Spanish course. Before their arrival, students take a placement test to determine their proficiency level, which will dictate access to Spanish language and content courses.

The University of Delaware’s program partner is Barcelona Study Abroad Experience (Barcelona SAE), the organization specialized in Barcelona that makes all on-site program arrangements and serves as a liaison to the UAB. Barcelona SAE’s Spanish- and Catalán-speaking resident staff make housing and excursion arrangements, ensure that students are properly registered at the UAB, and assist students if any problems arise. At the Barcelona SAE offices, situated a 15-minute walk from the city center, students can find the on-site staff, printing facilities, and free WiFi connection.

Community Engagement: Students have the opportunity to volunteer in the local community, the best way to get to know Spaniards.

Students can choose to be housed in homestays with Spanish families with breakfast and dinner provided or in shared apartments, either with other U.S. students in the program, or with international students studying or working in Barcelona . All apartments are equipped with kitchen facilities, WiFi connection, and washing machines. The apartments are spread throughout the city in areas with easy access to public transportation, restaurants and shops. Average commute time to the UAB is less than 30 minutes by public transportation.

The group typically takes two overnight excursions to places such as Zaragoza, or Bilboa as well as two day trips to Tarragona, the Dali Museum, or Girona. On-site staff also arrange frequent activities in order to facilitate students’ immersion into the local culture such as: Spanish & Catalán cooking class, “getting to know Barcelona” tours, speed intercambio (language exchange) with locals, salsa classes and more.

The Program Fee includes lodging, cost of Spanish visa (required for U.S. citizens), airport pick-up in Barcelona, local metro and bus passes, welcome and farewell dinners, all program-related activities and excursions and international medical insurance. Students will need to budget for meals, laundry, cellphone, linen package for the apartments and other personal expenses. Students are required to have a cellphone capable of making local calls in Spain and of sending and receiving text messages in Spain. Due to the time required to obtain a visa, at the time of application, students must have a passport valid for six months beyond the program’s return date.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare to/from Spain, nor does it include airport transfer on the date of departure. The program officially begins when students arrive in Barcelona. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane ticket. See the Cost section below for estimate airfare. For this program, students will be given recommended flight itineraries for traveling together.

The Institute for Global Studies cooperates with the Lerner College of Business and Economics on the administration of this program.

ACCESSIBILITY: Participants with disabilities should know that accessibility and accommodation in some program locations may differ from the United States. Transit systems and legacy building construction practices may not meet U.S. accessibility standards, and alternative access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites cannot be guaranteed. But UD students with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to study abroad. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
