what we offer


Your mentor will be a university student, your age, who will be there for you throughout your time in Spain. Your mentor will organize activities, travel with you, and support you as you navigate your new surroundings.  Our peer mentor program is rated by our students as one of the best things about Tufts-Skidmore Spain and 100% effective in helping them to make local friends and to understand and integrate into Spanish life.

Intercultural Mentoring

We will offer you ongoing intercultural mentoring and training throughout your semester/year, designed to enhance your ability to act competently and ethically in response to cultural difference. Our program operates on the belief that in addition to acquiring culture-specific knowledge about Spain and its peoples, you should also develop general intercultural/global skills and attitudes that can eventually be transferred into the professional sphere.

Diverse Academic Choices

Take classes at local universities alongside Spanish peers, enroll in innovative program classes offered at the beautiful Tufts-Skidmore Spain campus in Madrid, study at prominent art and dance academies: You choose! No matter how you decide to structure your academic experience, we will encourage you to use the knowledge gained in the classroom to become more informed global citizens and to expand your intercultural horizons.

What Our Students say

“The Tufts-Skidmore program provided me with opportunities to get involved in extracurricular activities and work experience, form lasting relationships with Spanish students and my host family, and gain the fluency to maintain these connections once returning to the US. The Tufts-Skidmore community couldn’t have been a better group with which to share this experience.

“Tufts-Skidmore Spain has been a wonderful time! The classes, the host families, and the experiences really helped me immerse in the Spanish culture and become a local. The program staff was absolutely amazing and offered all of the resources necessary to succeed academically and culturally. I had an incredible time here in Spain and this was truly an unforgettable semester!”

“The Tufts-Skidmore Spain program is like no other. The experience abroad is so much more than just the classes- it’s the friends you meet and the strangers who become family. Everything you’ve ever wanted to do or learn was an option with the help from the program staff. I wouldn’t trade my experience abroad for anything!”
