Location:
Love being outdoors? The temperate climate of Barcelona means you can enjoy the outdoors year-round. The city beaches have modern walkways and public facilities, and by using public transportation, you can enjoy many other beaches to the north and south.  In addition to beaches around Barcelona, the city’s efficient public transportation system allows for easy access to the campus and great sites located around the city.

Barcelona is unequivocally a Mediterranean city.  This is not only due to its graphic location, but also to its history, traditions, and cultural influences. Although it immediately strikes you with its Spanish and distinctly Catalan flair, it’s also known for an amazing international mix of people and activities. As a student, you will be immersed in diverse and vibrant environment. Your surroundings will stimulate your desire for cultural exploration and discovery. It is difficult to think of better backdrop for student life in Spain!
