Program Notes
Program Description
Study at Saint Louis University’s Madrid Campus which was the first non-Spanish University to be officially recognized by Madrid’s higher education authority. At this small university with a wide range of courses, students will have the benefit of small classes taught in English while studying in the center of Spain.

As the international campus of Saint Louis University, you will be studying with students from over 60 different countries. Average class size is 16 and the student to faculty ratio is 11:1.

Madrid, the capital of Spain, is a one of a kind place, featuring spectacular fountains, grand boulevards, and a maze of streets. Madrid is a bustling and vibrant city that boasts the world’s finest art museums, most loyal fútbol fans, and late-night dinners.

Study abroad students also have access to the university’s resources which include a library, English Writing Center, a Spanish Language Center and Math Tutors.

Students will live in double rooms in a privately run residence hall with Spanish students located about a 10-15 minute walk to SLU-Madrid's campus. The residence has a dining hall in which students can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner. Lunch may also be eaten, weekdays, on the campus of SLU-Madrid.
