What Our Students are Saying
"Málaga has the best of both worlds: whether you prefer to hike or go to the beach, each option offers breathtaking views along with great weather year-round. I have absolutely 0 regrets on choosing this location; upon arrival I realized it felt like home and since departing I feel as if I have left part of me there, but I am eager to return in the near future!"
Amanda J.Doane College
"The ISA staff in Málaga is amazing. I had a great time just hanging out at the office and doing the activities with the rest of the ISA group. All the excursions were awesome."
Amelia H.Kansas State University
"Studying abroad is hard. Traveling to a country where you don't speak the language and are not accustomed to the culture is even harder. Through ISA I was able to adapt to the culture, learn a new language, and return home with no regrets and the knowledge that I will be returning one day."
Arran S.Gap Year student
"ISA is a great program and has very good pricing. All programs include several excursions, which a lot of other programs do not offer. If you are going to study abroad in Spain, go to Málaga. I traveled to about 10 other cities around Spain and none of them topped Málaga. It is the most amazing city and I couldn't have picked a better location to study abroad."
Gretchen H.East Carolina University
"I could not have picked a better location to study abroad. Málaga is the perfect combination between city and beach; the best of both worlds. You get all the benefits of a city - restaurants, shops, nightlife- without all the crazy hustle and bustle that you see in other major cities. The weather is amazing- beach days until the middle of November and it rarely ever rains. The Spanish classes at UMA are amazing and have helped me improve my Spanish greatly. I would 10/10 recommend studying abroad in Málaga. This has been the best 3 months of my life and without a doubt I will be back!"
Mia B.Bryant University
"Traveling abroad through ISA was a wonderful experience. I can't put it to words how much you will grow while seeing the world. It's truly indescribable and once in a lifetime to witness the world around you this way."
