UC Davis Quarter Abroad, Spain: Info Session Slides

5,046

Published on

Spain...the very name conjures magical images of sun-drenched beaches, Moorish castles and a rich cultural and artistic heritage. So why not study in Spain's capital city and great cosmopolitan metropolis? When you study abroad in Madrid, you'll walk through history itself, down stoned-paved streets and past countless flowering balconies of the 18th century buildings before arriving in Madrid's city center, famous for tapas, shopping and entertainment. The unique spirit of Madrid is both serene and lively, making it a captivating place to learn Spanish and intern in the career field of your choice... http://studyabroad.ucdavis.edu
