Study with us

Since 1950, The Institute of Spanish Studies has offered courses designed and taught by staff who have years of experience working with students at all levels of study - from beginners to advanced students, all at an outstanding Southern European location.

Summer Sessions

During the Summer we offer two sessions, one during the month of May/June and another during June/July, where students can take up to three classes from our extensive course list in Language, Literature, History and Geography

Fall & Spring Semesters

During the academic school year you can attend our Fall or Spring Semester or even a year. Valencia is the perfect size of city, neither too big nor too small. It is the third largest city in Spain, large enough to offer a rich variety of culture and entertainment, but at the same time having a local neighborhood feel.


We are proud to present our Study Abroad Programs for the Summer of 2015 and for the Fall Semester 2015 and Spring Semesters of 2016 in Valencia, Spain.

Our 64 years of experience enable us to offer the highest quality programs at the lowest possible cost. We offer two summer sessions with classes from beginners to graduate level. For intermediate or advanced students we recommend a semester or an entire school year.

Starting Fall Semester 2015, we will have a shorter term that will allow students to return home by Thanksgiving or give them more time to travel before Christmas break. In addition, students will benefit from a lower price and a VISA-FREE experience in Spain.

Participating in any of these programs are a rewarding experience that will enhance your language and culture skills.

Whether you are a college student, a teacher on sabbatical leave, or a person simply interested in the Spanish language and culture, we offer the opportunity to improve your fluency and knowledge of Spanish while pursuing your personal interests.

Our professors have been selected for their outstanding teaching abilities and their knowledge of the American educational system. Our curriculum is designed so that students adapt easily to any of the programs we offer.
