Students choose a Major and a Minor, in Spanish or in English, from a selection of academic and creative options, all of which are taught by experts and designed to use Barcelona and its extraordinary resources as a teaching tool. Students with two or more years of Spanish can opt for the immersion courses taught entirely in Spanish.

Full Course List
In addition to program-wide field trips, and numerous outings to Barcelona's famous beaches, our Activities Directors organize a full program. On a daily basis, students can opt to attend concerts or recitals, watch Catalan and Spanish dance performances, visit one of Barcelona's many world-class museums, or go on expert-led tours of its many culinary marvels and architectural oddities. Whether attending a classical music concert in the glorious Palau de la Música Catalana or visiting the world-famous Picasso Museum, students always have a range of stimulating activities available to them.
Accommodation and Rooms
In Barcelona, students live in rooms that are occupied by undergraduates during the year. Students are housed in singles or doubles and all rooms have a/c and private bathrooms.
Students have access to common areas within the residences as well as a variety of sporting and educational facilities (gyms, basketball courts, tennis courts, pitches, libraries). Oxbridge provides every program with computers, so students have daily access to email and social media. The program staff maintains message boards and distributes mail every day.
Students enjoy breakfast and dinner in their residence's dining halls. Breakfast is primarily continental style with choices such as cereal, yogurt, fruit, toast, coffee, and tea. Several options are available at dinner, including a vegetarian dish and a salad bar. Special dinners are regularly held, and each program ends with a formal banquet. Students are responsible for their own lunch, which can be purchased from a college snack bar or one of the many sandwich shops, small restaurants, patisseries, or bodegas near each residence.
After the Program
Shortly after the program, all students and their parents receive a comprehensive set of grade reports, presenting their course syllabus and highlighting their specific contributions and achievements within their course(s). Most of our alumni later ask for additional copies to include in their college applications.
