DESCRIPTION 
For more than 18 years, Nebrija University has received students from all over the world. Every effort is made to integrate international students into daily university life. In the majority of programs, U.S. students attend classes side-by-side with Spanish students. Students can take courses in their area of specialization, design their own curriculum (taking courses of their choice), or take only courses in Spanish Language and Culture to enhance their level of Spanish. International students have access to all activities and general services (libraries, computer labs, sports facilities, etc.) as well as all extra-curricular activities.
