    Nebrija University is one of the top-10 Spanish Universities. Being a small University of about 5000 students, there is a high teacher to student ratio of 1 to 15 thus giving students more individual attention. Students can take courses in their area of specialisation, design their own curriculum, or take only Spanish Language and Culture. Elective courses are also offered in English, covering topics in Spanish Culture, Business, and European Studies. Students have access to all activities and campus services (libraries, computer labs, sport facilities, etc) and all extra-curricular activities as well. Students choose courses from only one program, which will take place primarily on the Princesa Campus, but can depend upon courses. Cultural activities in Madrid include: Guide Walks, Prado Museum, Royal Palace, as well as workshops in dance, cooking, and games. Excursions outside of Madrid include trips to Toledo, Segovia, Salamanca, and El Escorial. Housing is offered in campus residences, as well as nearby Spanish host families. Can attend for the Academic Year, Semester, and Summer terms (June / July). Early registration is advised. Minimum age is 18 (17 with parental permission). Supervision provided by staff there.
