2020 Program Adjustments Due to COVID-19

Spanish Studies Abroad has made policy changes to provide maximum flexibility to accommodate as many students as possible during this uncertain time, keeping in mind that the coming terms may be the last opportunity to study abroad before graduation. Given the evolving circumstances, we expect that the policies will continue to be adjusted, so please bookmark and refer back to this page regularly.

Please note: All programs previously offered during the summer have been postponed until 2021 in all our Spain and Latin America locations.
