Arcos Abroad 2022

Overall my experience in Granada, Spain was amazing. The people, the culture, the food, everything was fantastic. Arcos Abroad did a good job showing us this beautiful country but there are things they could change to make their program better. Other programs offered more support. I believe I was only asked once or twice about how my classes were going. Another thing that I think they could change is giving each student their own room. I, including some other students had to share rooms. Meanwhile, other students in the same program had their own rooms. Another thing they can change is giving more support and activities who arrive earlier than the rest of the students. Some students in our program took an intensivo Spanish course the first month. I didn't personally go through this, but was told by my peers that they felt lonely and had a difficult time during this period of time. These are a few problems that can be easily fixed. I think with these changes, Arcos can become a great program!

Pros
  • Smaller program allowed us to create better bonds
  • Staying with a great host family allowed me to enjoy the program more
  • The universities teachers were excellent
Cons
  • Sometimes there was a lack of support from the program directors
  • Having to share a room
  • Lack of activities during the last month

Arcos Learning Abroad in Buenos Aires

I just spent the last four months living in Buenos Aires studying abroad for a semester with Arcos. They are seriously the best program ever!! Very affordable considering the options while still including many excursions and events. The programming happened about once a week where we did all kinds of fun events in the city and also in other places (like Uruguay!). The homestay that I was placed in was so lovely and my host mom was very attentive and understanding. Arcos made it very easy for me to learn how to navigate the city and make it to school everyday. I did not struggle with any of my classes, but Arcos made it very clear to me that I could get help with any issues I encountered academically. Raul, my program director, always made me feel like I was a part of his family which helped me tremendously with my homesickness. Seriously this program is so so amazing and I HIGHLY recommend using Arcos!!

Pros
  • Affordable
  • Diverse programming
  • Understanding and attentive staff

Arcos Learning Abroad - Incredible experience in Granada, Spain

My experience with Arcos Learning Abroad was absolutely incredible! The Arcos staff were wonderful to work with, the education was of great quality, and the immersion in the culture of Spain was phenomenal. I felt very safe and supported throughout my stay in Granada thanks to the Arcos team and my host family. There was a great balance of education and outside activities that made the experience both rewarding and enjoyable. I would do it all over again if I could! Overall, I highly recommend this program!

Pros
  • Great education in Spanish language, culture, history, etc.
  • Very safe environment

Granada 5 week Program

I could talk for hours about how much I enjoyed doing study abroad through Arcos. I had a great group, incredible and unforgettable homestay families, and very kind and helpful advisors. If I weren’t graduating I would do Arcos learning abroad programs every year of college! My time at the Universidad de Granada had such an impact on my life, Spanish, and college education. I am so grateful to have participated in this program! I hope to return to Granada or at least Spain as soon as possible. My life is forever changed since visiting the beautiful city, region, and country.

Pros
  • Rich history
  • Scenic city
  • Incredible People
