Madrileños are justifiably proud. Much more than just a place to learn or perfect Spanish, Madrid is a modern political, cultural, and financial center. Here, people have managed to preserve the old while embracing the new, keeping alive small-town traditions alongside cosmopolitan cultural events and a world-famous nightlife scene. The city is now enjoying its latest renaissance with numerous restored historic buildings and an abundance of well-maintained parks and public squares.

Once you arrive in Madrid, you’ll be introduced to our program and will meet fellow classmates and the Syracuse University Madrid staff. Through our Welcome Session programming, we’ll facilitate your transition to life in your new city as you find your place in Madrid and begin your study abroad adventure.
