What Our Students are Saying
"The staff in the ISA office of Barcelona was incredibly friendly and helpful throughout my time abroad. It was great to know that there was a large group of people with a vast knowledge of Barcelona supporting me during my semester."
Alec S.University of Colorado- Boulder
"My study abroad experience in Barcelona was the best experience of my life. If I could go back, I would choose to study here for a year. The ISA staff was amazing in helping me integrate myself in the culture while also pushing me to explore outside my comfort zones in order to enhance my experience. I encourage everyone to study abroad and really immerse yourself wholly in the culture wherever you end up."
Anna M.Seattle University
"My experience studying abroad has impacted my life and is something I will remember forever. But ISA made the experience even better with the support, cultural integration, and an amazing staff"
Kadeeja J.University of North Carolina - Charlotte
"Studying abroad in Barcelona was the best decision I've ever made. The city is vibrant and beautiful with great weather and even better people. Study abroad made me an independent person and taught me so much about myself. Living in another country gives you perspective of the world through a different lens and reminds you that regardless of nationality, race, ethnicity, religion and so on that we're all human."
Maggie C.University of Colorado- Boulder
"I loved my experience abroad so much and ISA definitely played a major role in that. I felt like I was independent but still had the support of the ISA staff. I couldn't have had a better experience."
Mia C.University of California, Los Angeles
"My overall ISA experience was excellent. The staff made me feel welcome and made me feel as if I could go to them with any problem or issue I had in Barcelona. My apartment was great and the people I met in the ISA program where amazing. I would recommend ISA Barcelona to any student considering studying abroad."
