Medieval City frames your Spanish language and cultural learning

How would you like to study abroad in a former 16th Century convent in the heart of the historical district of one of Spain’s most beautiful cities? Arcadia’s academic partner in Toledo, The Fundación Ortega-Marañón - Toledo, is within walking distance of the most famous landmarks in Toledo. It offers a wide range of courses from Spanish language, history and art to politics and economics. 

The Fundación is a degree-granting institution focused on strengthening knowledge of Spanish language and culture. It has particular strengths in community engagement and internship opportunities via courses with placements.

Studying in Spain has afforded me the opportunity to see Europe and meet amazing people along the way. In my opinion, every student who has the chance to study abroad should. It will affect you in more ways than you can count. ”

  • If you are interested in experiencing the Spanish workplace in addition to your academic courses, include the internship course as an elective.

  • You will live and study in a unique setting that is more intimate and manageable than a larger city, yet you can still visit the busy capital of Madrid in an hour.
