The flagship center for ISA academic programming in Spain, the ISA Study Center with Universidad Internacional Menéndez Pelayo (UIMP) is ranked as one of the top 100 Spanish universities and is the principle organization in Spain for teaching the Spanish language and culture to international students.
Founded in 1932 by Spain's Ministry of Education, classes were initially held in King Alfonso XIII's summer palace in Santander. Today, the university has spread its reach across the country, establishing satellite campuses in seven cities in Spain, including Sevilla. Its academic programs are deliberated for foreign students, placing high emphasis on Spanish language, literature, and culture. The university continues to grow and is recognized for its expansive development in social sciences and humanities, technology, music, theater, poetry and cinema.
Popular areas of study at the UIMP include:
- Spanish language, literature, and culture
- Health Sciences
- International Relations
- Business and marketing
Located on the periphery of the Casco Viejo (historic downtown) next to Parque de María Luisa, students will be able to reach campus on foot or by utilizing Sevilla's extensive public transportation network of buses, metro, and tram.
This university program is ideal for first-time travelers and students who are hoping to gain a better understanding of Spanish culture and language. The campus is shared by the ISA Study Center, so students will have regular interaction and support from the resident staff.
