The Barcelona International College Semester Program offers students the incredible opportunity to vastly improve their Spanish language skills while earning college credit with courses in English, specially designed for them. The Barcelona International College is located in the heart of the Eixample district of Barcelona - a beautiful area of the city constructed in the 19th and 20th centuries in typical Modernist fashion. All BIC courses are accredited by Jacksonville University in Florida which will facilitate credit transfers back to your home university.

In addition to the list of what's included in every semester abroad program with Barcelona SAE, students studying on the Barcelona International College Semester Program get to go on an extra overnight excursion at no extra cost!
