Virtual program in Barcelona

ESA-Program-27

Travel virtually with us to Barcelona to learn about this lively and dynamic Mediterranean capital and its unique and distinctive culture. The city has so much to offer and ESA brings students in close contact with it through guided visits to monuments such as the Sagrada Familia and with guest lectures on pressing issues such as the Catalan independence movement and migration in Spain. Furthermore, we can arrange custom visits related to your particular field. You can’t travel to Barcelona without enjoying the local cuisine, and so we cap off this intensive immersion program with a cooking workshop and farewell event.
