Global Gateway 2018 Spring Trip with President Marisa Kelly and Acting Provost Sebastian Royo

The Suffolk University Madrid Campus provides an opportunity for students to immerse themselves in the Spanish history and culture. Our Global Gateway Program offers incoming freshmen to experience the Madrid Campus firsthand through a one-week travel program during spring break. You and other first-year students will become part of a globally focused cohort of students who will have the opportunity to experience Spain at a fraction of the cost.

Program Details

Any incoming first year students are welcome to apply for the program. The Global Gateway Program is open to students of all majors within both the College of Arts and Sciences and the Sawyer Business School.

Application Process

Students will complete an online application where they can express why they are a good match for this program. This application can be started as early as the summer of 2018. Eligible students will be invited to an in-person  interview following the submission of their application. Students will be notified of their acceptance into the program by the end of November 2018.

Application due date: November 1st.

There will be a series of mandatory group meetings before and after the trip dates to inform students of expectations, introduce students to Spanish culture, and outline project goals for group presentations after the trip.
