Enthusiasts, we welcome you!
The ALBA Barcelona experience is one you don’t want to miss. Just minutes from the beach, in the old Roman City, and surrounded by some of Gaudi’s and other architects’ finest architecture, a new experience and opportunity awaits at every turn.
A small program, big learning opportunities
Areas of study ranging from art to business to sociology to political science to Spanish transfer directly back to US universities, allowing you to progress towards your degree in a brand-new country.
Exclusive cultural advantages
Explore on Friday ALBA-sponsored trips with fellow ALBA students to discover amazing nature with breath-taking views, explore old medieval villages, or swim and kayak in the beautiful waters of the Costa Brava. Cook in small groups with a local chef right in ALBA’s own on-site, fully-equipped kitchen. You and your small group of ALBA peers learn how to prepare and cook classic Spanish dishes. And then you get to eat it! Enjoy after school field trips with ALBA staff and faculty to parks, markets and monuments in the various barrios of Barcelona.
