Academics & Athletics — May 17–June 23, 2018

Addressing the needs of both UR student athletes and students who want to keep in shape during the summer, this program will let you take your training beyond the borders of the United States and into one of Spain’s most important cities mixing academic, cultural and athletic activities.

Prepare yourself in the gym, physically and mentally, and follow up with a full-immersion language program in the classroom.

Balance your workouts with Spanish lessons and use what you have learned in the houses, stores, and stadiums of Sevilla.

You already speak the international language of sports: now, learn to express yourself with the national language of over 20 countries in the world.

Student athletes who are unable to study abroad during the academic year may also apply for a Weinstein Summer Grant to help cover airfare costs for summer international study.
