Universidad Autónoma de Madrid
The collaboration between Boston University and the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid offers BU Madrid students the opportunity to enroll in one of the best universities in Spain and experience typical Spanish university life.
The Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) is a state university founded in 1968 and is widely considered one of the premier universities in Spain. It currently enrolls approximately 30,000 students and hosts international exchanges of students and professors. Most of the university’s grounds are situated on the 548-acre Cantoblanco Campus and easily reached by public transportation. The UAM has seven academic schools: Philosophy and Arts, Psychology, Law, Science, Business and Economics, Education, and Biology. As students at the UAM, students with BU in Madrid have access to all university installations and student activities, including the libraries, the sports centers, the cafeterias, student volunteer and musical groups, and language classes. This is an especially exciting time to study at the UAM, as the degree programs have been changing progressively (from the old “licenciatura” system to the new “grado”) to comply with the Bolonia Process that aims to unite higher education in Europe.
