Study Abroad in Madrid Fall Semester with AIFS

Madrid is a busy and bustling global city. That being said, belonging to the local culture is a little different because Madrid invites so many cultures. Integration in Madrid was fun and taught me that I can live in a global city on my own. I feel like one of the biggest strengths about my program was that we were in the heart of a major European city, which meant that you could opt-in and out of whatever AIFS excursions or activities that you wanted, and still had the option to go out and explore on your own as well. There is ALWAYS something to do in Madrid. Similarly, I liked how my program was immersed into a Spanish University that had not only other students in study abroad programs similar to AIFS, but also other international students who chose Madrid as their study location. I chose to live in an apartment over a homestay and I wouldn’t change my decision because I got to live with not only other AIFS students but also a girl from Norway and a girl from Italy which was great

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Talk to your friends in the language, talk to locals in the language, and change your phone to that language. If you are living in an apartment with other students, coordinate group meals! It's a fun bonding experience and you all save money. I wish that I had traveled on my own a little bit less and enjoyed Madrid on the weekends more. I was unaware that there would be many other Abroad Programs taking classes at Universidad Nebrija and I was pleasantly surprised that I made so many more friends than just those in my program.
