The Best Study Abroad in Spain

I had a great experience due to the kind staff, the friends I made here, and the amazing experiences in Almeria.
This program helped me to improve my Spanish immensely! I learned so much about the language, culture, and agriculture in Spain. The professors were very helpful, really wanted you to learn the subject. We visited different companies in the sector and I was fascinated, seeing the things that I’m studying in a practical way.

I was also able to travel to many other cities in Spain, for example, I had the opportunity to visit the breathtaking Cabo de Gata!

Overall, I loved this program. It helped me a lot to get out of my comfort zone, making me a stronger and more emphatic person. Being in this program has really changed me as a person. Now, I have new friends that I love so much.

Everyone should study abroad!

Great Summer School on Business!

I did this Summer School to have fun and improve my skills on marketing and negociation, and all my expectations were fulfilled!

The team was reachable and helpful, as lots of their mails and messages made our stay easier! The cultural program was also amazing. The guide was very interesting and he offered us limonade!

Companies' visits were also really good. The tasting experience of tomatoes and olive oil were great!

Overall, it was a very nice experience and I would recommend it for sure!

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
More native English speaker would be appreciated

Best exprience ever!

It was an amazing experience. I did a summer course in business, and I got to visit Almeria while getting to know its agri-food industry. We visited several companies and we got to try fresh vegetables! They were the tatiest ones I ever had!

The university is also a very nice and pleasant, and it is located just in front of the sea. It was great going there to have some bath or just sunabathing after classes. Also, the city has many things to offer! I remember watching a flamenco live show on the street. That was wonderful! I would totally recommend it! Do not hesitate about doing a summer course in Almeria, it woudl be a lovely experience for sure!

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
They called it morcilla! If you like pork meat, you should definetely try it!

Biotechnology Course

It was an extraordinary and enriching experience. The professors were friendly, super helpful, prepared, always willing to clarify doubts and explore topics related to the course. I really enjoyed the practical approach of the course. It has been very useful in my university career.
The cultural activities and numerous visits to nearby attractions during our free time(the Alhambra in Granada, the Cabo da Gata nature reserve, the Tabernas desert) allowed me to discover a beautiful and hidden land. Hope to see you soon

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Enjoy the sun and the amazing beaches. And don't forget your sunscreen!
