Program Information

Spanish Studies Abroad is pleased to offer a 6-week summer session at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona  (UAB) in 2022. The program will run from June 4 to July 15 and it will be the only Barcelona summer program that SSA offers. Other than a handful of Spanish language courses, instruction will be in English, with the largest number of courses offered in the area of Business (6 options).

Our students will be able to choose from homestay housing or a student residence. Total fees for the program, with either housing option are $9,400 (note that meals are not included in the student residence; kitchens are available for cooking).

Each class will have 45 contact hours (3 US college credit hours) and students will be able to take up to two classes (6 credits). 

In addition to the 6 Business courses offered, there will be three in Spanish language (from beginner to low intermediate), 2 in Art & Architecture, 1 in Mediterranean Studies, and 1 in Economics. Transcripts will be provided by UAB.

These costs are merely orientative*

This plan estimates personal and miscellaneous expenses at approximately $175 per week. 

If you need to travel to a consulate for the purpose of obtaining a visa before your program abroad (semester students only), remember to budget for that travel expense.

Some students will spend more and others will spend less, of course. Consider your lifestyle and budget accordingly. 

The “Short Term” estimate is for one 3.5 week program; if you are participating in two, multiply by two.
