Universidad Antonio de Nebrija
The Universidad Antonio de Nebrija (Nebrija) is a private, top-ten Spanish University in Madrid. The university consists of two campuses. Campus Dehesa de la Villa is located in the university area of Madrid (Moncloa) and the Dehesa Campus is located in a natural park reserve in the outskirts of Madrid (Hoyo de Manzanares). Nebrija is a small university with approximately 4,000 students enrolled. The university prides itself for giving students individual attention and small class sizes with the student-teacher ratio at 15 to 1. Nebrija is an active member of the Socrates-Erasmus programs and receives 500 international students each year.
For more than 18 years, Nebrija University has received students from all over the world who come to spend a period of their academic training with us. Every effort is made to integrate international students into daily university life. In the majority of programes, they attend classes side-by-side with Spanish students. Students can take courses in their area of specialization, design their own curriculum (taking courses of their choice), or take only courses in Spanish Language and Culture to enhance their level of Spanish. International students are students in their own right at Nebrija, with access to all activities and general services (libraries, computer labs, sports facilities, etc.) and all extra-curricular activities as well.
