Internship Certificate Program - Orientation I

Summer in Madrid, Spain


On the Summer in Madrid program, you will enroll in a four week summer program at Suffolk University’s Madrid Campus. As a CISabroad student, you’ll spend a summer at Suffolk University, enjoying the amenities of a tradition US private university while still experiencing life abroad. Study in small, intimate classes with a multicultural student body during the week; take organized excursions throughout Spain on the weekends

While CISabroad works closely with NYIT, you will need to apply and pay all program fees directly to CISabroad. While we can assist in the search for your ideal programs, it is important that you are aware of how the experience will fulfill credits back at NYIT. If you have any questions about this process, please contact

A few highlights of this program include:
• Amazing culture in a great city - Madrid has something for everyone: the food lover looking for amazing cuisine, the hipster searching for a cool café in which to study, or the night owl in pursuit of Spain's vibrant nightlife. 
• Life in Spain’s capital and largest city – You’ll often encounter more traffic on the streets at 2 a.m. than at 2 in the afternoon. Madrid is Europe’s equivalent of the New York City, so you’ll feel right at home.
• Weekend excursions to exciting Spanish cities – We’ll help you experience the best of Madrid, but we also want to take you to other great places in Spain. You’ll experience the landscape, culture, and attractions of Spanish cities like Seville, Cordoba, Segovia, and Toledo.
• Learn Spanish or brush up on your language skills – Due to the multi-cultural student body, Madrid is perfect from non-Spanish speakers who are looking to learn the language to students with high proficiency. 
• An excellent university with modern, technologically advanced classrooms – Summer in Madrid, housed at Suffolk University’s Madrid campus, boasts the most advanced computer system of any American university in Madrid. Its modern classrooms are fully equipped with the latest technology. 
• A robust social scene – Summer in Madrid holds more theater, film, and music than you could possibly see. The proximity to neighboring universities also means easy access to social groups, cultural activities, and sports.
