Program Overview
Departure date for the program is May 10, 2013.
The program begins in Spain on May 11, 2013. The program ends on May 24, 2013 and students return to the US on May 25, 2013.
The program is open to UWF students, and non-UWF applicants who apply for non-degree status. It will offer you multiple opportunities to use Spanish in your everyday life, and involve you in cultural activities. Limited spaces available.

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.

Program Considerations
You will receive a letter, via email, regarding the status of your academic application. Within 7 days of acceptance to the program, students will need to deposit $250.00 to the UWF in Spain account (Cashiers office), to reserve their place. Reservations are subject to availability. If students are admitted to the program, they will need to comply with all the study abroad requirements and 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. Do not book flights until you are officially accepted to the program, and complete the ODIEP paperwork. Also, transfers to and from Salamanca will require specific times for arrival and departure from Barajas.
