About Granada: In the heart of Andalucia, Granada is 60 kilometers inland from the Mediterranean Sea. Despite its proximity to the coast, the city is nestled in the northern foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, and is just as close to ski resorts as it is to beaches. Surrounded by dramatic mountain ranges on three sides, Granada boasts an ideal climate and a diverse geography where students enjoy a range of activities from swimming and scuba diving to skiing and mountain climbing.
About University of Granada: The origin of the University can be traced back to the fourteenth century. Granada was established as a university city, open to all peoples and cultures. The University's influence has since grown both on the local social and cultural scenes, and on the national and international levels. Today it is one of the leading universities of Spain and Europe. Abroadco students attend classes at the University's Modern Language Center, located in the city's most typically grenadino district, Realejo. The Center is housed in the beautifully restored 16th century Santa Cruz Palace.
