A totally unique experience. Santander is a small city with breathtaking views. I could walk to the beach every day before or after class. I always felt safe exploring the city, even walking alone at night. During my stay I lived with Fernando and his family in lovely village just outside Santander: perfect for relaxing after a busy day of lectures. Fernando is so enthusiastic about Spanish and I got to take an intensive Spanish course, before the semester started, which really helped! This program is great because it is exactly what I was looking for. The university and its staff were brilliant plus it is very easy to explore Spain and other European cities like Rome and Vienna from Cantabria!
