Once students are admitted to the program, they will need to complete all study abroad enrollment requirements online by the deadlines set by the UWF Office of Diversity and International Education and Programs (ODIEP), as well as the requirements and forms set by the host institution.

Salamanca is a dynamic and intimate city that invites you to immerse yourself into one of the most beautiful places in the world to learn Spanish while living the Spanish way. Salamanca is the home of the oldest University in Spain, the prestigious University of Salamanca. The city is a must see for all of us, since it has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Students will stay with local families. The families will provide three meals a day.
The Department of English and World Languages will collect the Program fee of $1800.00 for the "UWF in Spain" program ($300 deposit non-refundable). The program fee must be paid in full by March 1, 2014.
