Study Abroad

Immersion is a cornerstone of language study, bridging the gap between academic study and real-life experience. We strongly encourage all students to study abroad during their time at DU. We've developed an array of location and program options for Spanish students. You can choose from sites across the Spanish-speaking world, from the Iberian Peninsula to Central and South America, with a variety of program and university partners. Whether your dream is to achieve fluency in Spanish or to explore new cultures, DU has a study abroad program for you.

"The Santander Study Abroad program is an ideal combination where students go abroad, enroll at a local institution and benefit from all the local university has to offer, while still taking a class with DU faculty."

Study in Latin America

From Mexico to Chile, Latin America is home to some of the world's most vibrant art and culture, thanks to its blend of indigenous, African and other global influences. With highly varied subcultures across different regions and a stunningly diverse natural landscape, Latin America offers life-changing experiences for students alongside language immersion. Choose from various programs across the region, either with DU Partner Programs or institutions unaffiliated with DU.

University Support

The University provides some financial assistance for students who wish to study abroad. This includes the Cherrington Global Studies initiative, which helps offset study abroad expenses like airfare and student visa fees for eligible students, making the cost of a term abroad closer to that of one here on campus.
