Study & Intern in Toledo

Live and study in the walled city of Toledo, home for more than 2,000 years to a succession of Roman, Jewish, Visigoth, Moorish and Christian civilizations. Declared a World Heritage Site, Toledo is a living museum, a preserved part of Spanish history where people still live, work and play. A city of approximately 80,000, Toledo offers an environment where you can be immersed in Spanish culture through coursework, internships and daily life.

This program is offered in collaboration with the prestigious José Ortega-Marañón Foundation and the University of Minnesota. Based at the San Juan de la Penitencia residence, a converted 16th Century convent, the program offers modern learning facilities surrounded by spectacular views of the city, and easy access to the downtown area and public transit. In addition to the opportunity to improve Spanish language ability, the program offers a wide range of courses in the humanities, social sciences and arts. Located just an hour from Madrid, Toledo is an excellent base from which to explore Spain.

Students are required to maintain a minimum of 13 credit enrollment status per semester or maintain the minimum program credit enrollment determined by their study abroad program, whichever is greater. Grades earned on study abroad programs (for UMN resident credit) are converted to UMN A-F grades according to pre-established grade conversion criteria, if necessary.
