There are several ways you can study abroad in Spain during the summer. The two most popular are language immersion courses and educational travel programs, both of which are typically operated by a third-party provider (as opposed to a university). You may also enroll in summer courses at a Spanish university or apply for a study/internship placement with a Spanish school.

Learning Spanish While Studying in Spain
Many students want to learn Spanish while studying in Spain for the summer. If you wish to do this, ensure that any program you choose offers Spanish language classes, or ask for a recommended Spanish school you can enroll in on your own time.
Less commonly, students want to learn Arabic in Spain. This is possible in southern Spain where Arabic language schools are more common, in particular cities like Cádiz, Málaga, and even Seville. If you choose a summer study abroad program in one of these cities, this can be a great option to advance your language skills.
Most summer study abroad programs in Spain are less than 90 days long. Because of this, you will most likely not need a visa (since you can visit Spain up to 90 days without a visa). If your program is longer than 90 days or you plan to stay in Europe for longer than 90 days, consult with your study abroad program to make sure you get the correct visa option for your nationality.
