Study Abroad in Santander

Santander is a great city to study for students attempting to learn Spanish because the Spanish language in Santander is virtually unspoiled. The University of Texas at Austin and the Universidad de Cantabria retain a study abroad program allowing UT students to study in Santander, Spain at the UC with UT Spanish-speaking professors.[1] The study abroad program is split into two sessions in the summer, in both the beginning of summer and the end of summer.[1] The courses range and include Spanish Language and Culture, Biology, Engineering and Journalism.
