The unique focus of the Madrid Program combines linguistic and academic rigor, cultural immersion, and personal attention. The program introduces students to the richness and diversity of the Iberian Peninsula through first-hand theoretical and practical experiences.
The Madrid program welcomed its first group during Winter Quarter 2007-08 and officially celebrated its opening with inauguration ceremonies on May 30, 2008. Through the Madrid program, Stanford undergraduates have the opportunity to take academic courses, live with Spanish families, study the Spanish language, and engage in cultural activities in Europe’s third-largest city. The program is available during Autumn, Winter and Spring quarters. This location requires proof of language proficiency for all participants, including native Spanish speakers. Please refer to the Language Prerequisite section for more information.

Photo: This picture was taken after a long night of working in the Teide Observatory with our Astronomy class. We were all pretty tired because we only had intermittent sleep between the turns we took at operating the telescope, but seeing the sunrise at the top of this mountain was an incredible sight that I won't soon forget! —Dorian Lumarque, Winter 2017-18
