Overview of Neuroscience in Salamanca Spain

Neuro Abroad groupThe Neuroscience Study Abroad Program in Salamanca, Spain, will introduce students to neuroscience at an international level. The University of Salamanca (USAL), founded in 1218, is famous for language and literature studies and now as a center of excellence in science. A college town that is both medieval and modern, Salamanca was founded by the Romans in the 4th century, and it teams with cafes, tapas bars, shops, nightlife and a rich mix of locals, students, and European tourists. Students will learn about Neuroscience and Spanish culture by immersion in a truly unique city.

This program is a joint effort by UConn and the Institute of Neuroscience of Castilla y Leon, USAL. We offer undergraduate-level neuroscience courses (taught in English) that are suitable for majors or minors in Neurobiology or premedical science. Spanish language courses help science students become familiar with Spain and Spanish culture.

The program is open to qualified undergraduate and graduate students from universities in the USA and the EU. For admission, students must be 3rd or 4th-year undergraduates (not counting courses taken in high school) or graduate students and have a minimum GPA of 3.0. Students also must meet the prerequisites for the neuroscience course in which they wish to enroll. The program will admit a maximum of 50 students. The application deadline is February 15.
