Study art, fashion, and design at Parsons Paris this summer with API!

Calling all fashion-lovers, artists, and designers! API’s program with Parsons Paris is now accepting Summer 2018 applications.

The Universidad de Granada was chartered and given official Papal ratification by Clemente VII in 1531. Through its almost 500 years of existence, it has become one of the major intellectual centers in southern Spain. The University’s Modern Language Center, the Centro de Lenguas Modernas, is housed in what was once an orphanage built in the 1700s. It was completely restored in 1992 and is located in the heart of Granada, in the “Realejo” district. The 1:10 ratio of students to general population renders the entire city abuzz with university activity.

API Study Abroad Granada Spain Spring 2011

I feel like the host family experience really helped me get immersed in the program. They allowed me to meet their family and really feel at home. The academics were somewhat challenging and I went to class Monday through Friday for four hours a day. My schedule was set up so that I was able to take time throughout the day to enjoy everyday Spanish life including siestas, tapas, and cafe con leche. Granada has a small town feel, with everything in walking distance including the Albacin, Alhambra, the Cathedral, etc but also always has something going on and a great night life. Malaga, which has an international airport,is only an hour bus ride away. There is also a beautiful beach city called Nerja that we went to a few times over the semester that is so beautiful! I would not have chosen any other city to have spent 5 months in. It is such a unique city that really captures the authentic life of Andalusia.

Excellent Program

I traveled with API to Granada in Spring of 2008 and absolutely love it. The staff took care of everything the moment I landed in Madrid and really made themselves available to students. Housing was exactly as it was described and all of the classes I needed to get credit for were offered in the program. The excursions were excellent as well. I have traveled all over Spain and studied in Madrid and Salamanca, but Granada is definitely the place to be. Great night life, great people, and you can easily travel all over from the city. I would repeat my trip in a heartbeat!
