Interested in branching out a bit further on your own while studying abroad or hoping to have more destination options? There are many other study abroad programs available that can facilitate your enrollment at a host institution other than Suffolk Madrid. While participating in an affiliate program, you'll:

  • Take courses from the host institution's own course catalog
  • Take advantage of the flexibility in options for either short-term study or full semester stays
  • Have options for additional activities organized by the affiliate provider
  • Choose a housing option that suits you best. Many programs have options to either stay:
    • With a host family
    • In residence hall-style housing
  • Decide how best to immerse yourself in the language, culture, and in your studies abroad
  • Have a designated representative in host country to contact while you're abroad

The study abroad program you choose will follow the academic calendar of the host institution, which means dates and semester lengths may differ from the academic calendar you're used to here at Suffolk.

Learn more about available affiliate programs that are currently available.

Ready to take the reins on your study abroad experience? There's also the option to enroll directly in a host institution and participate in an exchange program. This means:

  • You will be directly enrolled in your host university abroad and the courses you take will be from the host institution's own course catalog
  • The semester will follow the host institution's academic calendar and the dates and semester lengths may differ from the academic calendar you're used to here at Suffolk

As a directly enrolled student, you can:

  • Take advantage of your host institution's benefits, support, and other services they may offer
  • Have the opportunity to have full language and cultural immersion while you study abroad—though many institutions will still offer courses in English if you choose
  • Plan your own housing, travel, excursions, and more to build the study abroad experience that suits you best
