Oxbridge in Salamanca is a full language immersion program for students with two or more years of Spanish who aspire to achieve native fluency.

Oxbridge in Salamanca takes place in Colegio Mayor Fray Luis de León, the only Universidad de Salamanca residence located within the Old City, a beautiful university town that was the birthplace of Spanish language study and teaching, and which is recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

Our students are taught by local university teachers and artists. They choose two courses—a Major and a Minor—which are taught entirely in Spanish. The courses on offer include topics as varied as Culturas hispánicas, Cultura y cocina, or Relaciones internacionales. Our interactive courses, coupled with a full calendar of activities - including excursions to Madrid and Segovia - enable our students to live like locals for a month, fully immersing them in Spanish language and culture.

About Salamanca

Located in the hills along the Tormes River, Salamanca is a bustling city with a vibrant student population. Its central square, the Plaza Mayor, features baroque architecture and popular spots where locals love to shop, eat, and socialize. While the city is nicknamed "La Dorada" or "The Golden One" - a reference to its ancient sandstone buildings which appear to glow – it is also known as the City of Spanish. In the 15th century, the first book dedicated to the rules of Spanish was published in Salamanca and, today, it still attracts thousands of international students eager to strengthen their grasp of the language.
