Program Overview This program's deadline has been changed to 05/31/2019.

World Scholars - Madrid is an exclusive opportunity for students admitted to the University of Delaware World Scholars Program.

The University of Delaware World Scholars Program is a four-year program for internationalizing a student's undergraduate career. Choosing from a wide range of majors, World Scholars are supported in their studies with internationally-focused academics, experiences, and opportunities that will prepare them to live and work anywhere in the world. UD World Scholars study abroad twice, beginning with the first semester of their first year in Greece, Italy, Spain or New Zealand, and in any of 40+ destinations during their junior year.

World Scholars in Madrid, Spain will experience their first semester as freshmen enrolled in UD courses at our partner institution, St. Louis University - Madrid (SLU-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.

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; students should budget approximately $100 for this.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare. The program officially begins when students arrive in Madrid on September 1. For planning purposes only, airfare is estimated at $1,400. Students who wish to travel with the UD representative, must book the recommended flights as outlined in your /mybluehenhome portal.



ACCESSIBILITY: Students with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to study abroad. Before making the decision to study abroad, prospective students with disabilities should be aware that accessibility and accommodation in some study abroad locations may differ from the United States. Review these questions with World Scholar Program leadership to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.

Courses: All courses are taught in English and meet UD graduation requirements.

Scholars will co-enroll in POSC 240 Introduction to Global Politics and will select three additional courses. Advising and course selection will take place prior to or during Pre-Departure Orientation (PDO) at the University of Delaware. In preparation, students should review their major course requirements.
