“From the start, all of the LeadAbroad staff were so helpful with answering my billion questions, making sure I had everything I needed and that I felt more than welcome coming on the trip. After arriving, the GO Barcelona team really exceeded my expectations. I could not have asked for better guidance during my time abroad!”

Kirsten Brown

Oglethorpe University

“Before speaking with LeadAbroad, I had no idea where I wanted to travel in Europe. After hearing about each program and discussing the culture of Barcelona, I was hooked! The sign up process was definitely easier than expected. I felt like I always knew exactly what needed to be done thanks to the people helping me along the way!”

Academic Courses

GO Barcelona courses are developed in the context of Spain’s rich cultural history. Classes are available in business, culture, communications and art history. Students with Spanish majors or minors can even opt-in to Spanish-language instruction and receive Spanish credit for select culture classes.

Our distinguished professors are experienced in leading students in international settings and incorporate local culture into the classroom whether it is through cultural site and museum visits, readings by Spanish authors or by providing local context to the topics discussed. Smaller class sizes mean there is ample opportunity for you to engage with your professor and fellow students to fully embrace the curriculum. Classes meet Monday-Thursday most weeks which will provide you the opportunity to travel on your 3-day weekends.

Community Building & Engagement

Our engagement model is the reason the GO programs are different from other study abroad programs. Our team consists of a program director, faculty members and peer leaders who will support you and create fun and unique opportunities to connect with your program group. In past summers, we have hosted a variety of optional activities such as cooking classes, catamaran rides and tours of La Sagrada Familia. Students have told us they’ve connected with new best friends and future bridesmaids during these optional activities designed to bring the program together!

Housing options have slightly different common spaces, kitchens and other amenities, but both locations offer private bedrooms and bathrooms for every student. Housing preferences are reviewed and honored based on the date that you reserved your spot on the program.
