GlobaLinks Learning Abroad offers semester/year/trimester and summer abroad programs at University of Salamanca in conjunction with Active Learning Abroad for in-country support and services.
The University of Salamanca, founded by Alfonso IX of Leon in 1218, is the oldest in Spain and one of the oldest in the world. It was at the forefront of the Spanish Renaissance, served as a bridge to Latin America, and later became a model for many universities in the New World. Some of the most renowned Spanish writers and intellectuals were educated in its halls. The University of Salamanca continues this tradition of excellence to this day with a highly distinguished faculty doing research in 53 departments.
The university's 30,000 Spanish students have the opportunity to receive degrees in 58 different areas of specialty. In addition, 7,000 foreign students from all over the world take language and culture classes through Cursos Internacionales, the University Department that organizes these long tradition programs for international students.
