WANT TO STUDY ABROAD
BUT DON'T NEED THE CREDITS?
WE CAN HELP!
Many university students want to study abroad but are unable to fit it into their schedule, budget, or specific academic requirements.
We've created a linguistic and cultural immersion program without the formal coursework, that's rooted in experiential learning beyond classroom walls.
What Makes Us Special
Live with a host family. Get to know locals.
Immerse yourself in Spanish lifestyle and customs, accompanied by expert guides who are passionate about sharing the Spanish language, culture and way of life.
Let us welcome you into our network of friends and family so you can experience Spain like a local and live an authentic immersion experience.
Open Door Eligibility
We're committed to making immersion experiences open to more people, especially graduating college seniors, graduate students, and post-grads, looking for a transformative experience before their next step in life. We welcome participants regardless of language level or student status to join our program.
Flexible and Customized
We offer a healthy balance of programmed activities and free time to explore the city on your own, making it possible to work on other projects like grad school apps, an online course, or studying for the GRE. Additional optional activities and opportunities for service work allow you to choose your own adventure and customize your experience.

My summer abroad in Granada, Spain truly was an experience of a lifetime! The beautiful culture, people, food, and inclusion I felt from the community made me fall in love with the city in such a short amount of time. I highly recommend this experience to anyone who is wanting to practice their Spanish language and speaking skills without the pressures of a grading system. It is an amazing opportunity to challenge yourself and broaden your horizons- you will not regret it!

I couldn't recommend Beyond more! To anyone who is looking to fully explore the culture of Spain and better their Spanish skills in a non-stressful and completely authentic way -- Holly and Darío have created a truly incredible program where you get the full immersion experience in every aspect while making really great friends along the way. I had the best month and I already wish I could return to Granada!

After my university told me I wouldn't be able to study abroad because of a deadline, I was crushed. I went to my professor and told her about the news, but she told me about Beyond Language Immersion: Holly and Darío had already realized the need for this program. Realizing needs is very typical for them - throughout our trip, none of us ever had to stress because Holly and Darío had already taken care of it. If you want to spend your time connecting with locals, living the culture, staying in a Spanish home, and having a new group to call your family: go with Beyond Language Immersion.
