NYU Madrid: Day in the Life

As NYU’s oldest study away site, NYU Madrid offers an immersive learning experience like no other. The Spanish capital combines a storied history with a dynamic culture, making it an ideal place to study. You can learn about art history, anthropology, literature, economics, or politics, all while honing your Spanish language skills.

NYU Madrid’s academic center is located in Chueca, a pedestrian-friendly neighborhood known for its restaurants and shops. In addition to Spanish language classes for every skill level, there are dozens of courses to choose from. The popular Masterpieces in the Prado Museum class, for example, takes students on weekly outings to the renowned Prado Museum.

All students live in apartment-style housing in a nearby neighborhood, each with its own personality. When you’re not studying, the NYU Madrid team organizes a number of day trips through which you can explore the city. Plus, Madrid’s 300+ metro stations allow access to any of the city’s streets or suburbs. Enjoy traditional Spanish food, relax in one of the many plazas along the street, or take a hike in the countryside—your options are endless.

“I’ve had so many great experiences here, and I’ve grown a lot,” Gabby concludes. “I can honestly see myself living here one day.”
