Where can you enjoy tapas, sangria, and the cultural treasures of Spain while biking along sun-soaked beaches, relaxing in modern accommodations, and studying international business, tourism, marketing, and Spanish? Valencia! Located on the East Coast of Spain, just south of Barcelona, Valencia combines old city charm, a coastal vibe, and dazzling architecture to offer an amazing cultural experience.
Students attend classes at the beautiful Universidad Politecnia de Valencia, taught by WSU and UPV faculty. Group excursions to Granada, historic wineries, cultural events, a nature preserve, and local businesses offer broad cultural exposure, while embedding classroom learning within the culture.
Located near the university, public transit, and the beach, accommodations are modern, clean, and safe, with kitchenettes, a gym, and a rooftop patio.
With outdoor activities, day/night city entertainment, and easy access for weekend getaways, Valencia is the ideal location for Cougs to expand their horizons.
