Explore Europe Program

In an increasingly globalized society, employers seek graduates with international experience. What better way to gain a multicultural perspective than by studying in the heart of Europe?

Suffolk University’s unique Explore Europe program takes the traditional study abroad experience to the next level. With our focus on exposing students to diverse European cultures throughout their time abroad, you’ll come away with an understanding of how global forces affect the lives of citizens everywhere.

Thanks to a wide array of courses offered for students of all majors, you're sure to stay on track with your academic program. Take courses in English alongside fellow Suffolk students and others who come from all over the world, while also having the opportunity to learn Spanish through classes taught by native speakers and day-to-day interactions with locals. When you’re not in class or traveling, a wide variety of fun and engaging activities will immerse you in Spanish daily life. Join one of the many student clubs, go on hikes in the nearby Guadarrama Mountains, or explore Madrid’s many hidden gems.

Suffolk Madrid: Your Gateway to Europe

The Suffolk University Madrid Campus is a little piece of Boston in the heart of the Spanish capital. Whether you choose to study for a semester, a year, or just for a summer session, you will have opportunities to go on trips within Spain, as well as to other European capitals. Destinations vary each year, but in the past have included cities like London, Paris, Berlin, Lisbon, Budapest, and Prague. By the end of your time in Madrid, not only will you have gotten to know this beautiful city like a local, but you will have also visited some of the most exciting and culturally relevant destinations in Europe.
