Program Description and Location
Students will study at the Universidad de Extremadura, an institution located in a small city named Cáceres. With a population of some 80,000  you will experience the charm of life in a provincial city and enjoy the traditional night life that comes from a large and active student population.

Cáceres is located in the region of Extremadura, halfway between Madrid and Lisbon, and has much to offer in terms of historical and cultural attractions. The well-preserved historical center, with most buildings dating from the medieval and renaissance periods, led UNESCO in 1986 to declare it a "World Heritage Site." Cáceres also is a candidate to be named the Cultural Capital of Europe for 2016!
The Universdad de Extremadura (UEx) has two locations, one in the old quarter of Cáceres, and a new, American-style campus. Near both locations of the university there are numerous cafes and bars serving inexpensive meals where students go to eat tapas, sit and talk, or dance and listen to music.
Classes are taught by UEx faculty who are among the most well-known in Spain. The campus also boasts libraries, information technology centers, sports and fitness facilities, restaurants, student centers and other significant buildings.
