University of Delaware Institute for Global Studies
Spring 2022: Madrid, Spain

Program Dates January 11, 2022 - May 12, 2022
This program is closed.

Program Overview If you do not have a current passport, you should be aware that COVID-19 has delayed passport processing times significantly. The U.S. State Department has announced that it now takes an average of 18 weeks (4.5 months) to process a passport.

Given the circumstances, if you want to study abroad in 2022, you need to apply for or renew your passport NOW - even if you’re not 100% sure about your study abroad plans yet. We recommend expediting both the processing time and the shipping time for your passport.


Traveling and studying abroad during a global pandemic poses new challenges and requires accepting a higher level of uncertainty than in the past. Students who choose to study abroad at this time must be prepared to adapt to the evolving situation and must take responsibility to act in accordance with the rules, regulations, and recommendations of UD, their program leadership, and legal authorities of their home and host country. Due to the rapidly changing and unpredictable global and local response to COVID-19, these rules, regulations and recommendations are subject to change at any time.

The University will continue to monitor the ongoing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) as we approach the departure date for this program. Please reach out to your program coordinator or faculty director with questions and continue to monitor the UD coronavirus webpage for updates.

If UD decides to cancel a study abroad program, we will communicate directly with affected students. In this case, the University of Delaware will reimburse the cost of program fees, tuition and flights (if purchase was advised by CGPS).


All applicants must have a valid passport by program's deadline.

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.

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

The Program Fee includes housing, Spanish visa, meals at residence hall and international medical insurance. Students will need to budget for laundry, cellphone, bed linens, books 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.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare to/from Madrid, nor does it include airport transfers in the United States. The program officially begins when students arrive in Madrid. 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.



ACCESSIBILITY: Students with disabilities are welcomed and encouraged to study abroad, but should be aware 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. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.

Courses: Students must enroll in all credit-bearing courses for a grade. Only the UNIV (zero credit) course may be taken pass/fail. Audit registration is not permitted on UD Travel Study. Please refer to the University Catalog to verify requirements and prerequisites. All students must enroll in at least 12 credits, as well as the 0-credit UNIV course. Please note: All courses are taught in English with the exception of SPAN courses.

Courses offered are subject to change as the host institution's scheduling may change.

Students take a maximum of 18 credits on the program.
