The Global Gateway Program

Suffolk University is all about global education. Our Global Gateway Program brings the world to you in Boston, and you out into the world. You can join a select group of freshmen who travel to Suffolk's campus in Madrid, Spain, for a week in the spring semester of your very first year here.

The Suffolk University Madrid Campus provides an opportunity for students to immerse themselves in Spanish history and culture. Our Global Gateway Program gives a globally focused cohort of students the opportunity to experience Spain at a fraction of the cost.

Program Details

The Spring 2023 trip will occur on March 11 - March 18, 2023.

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