In addition to getting a quality education at a prestigious university, Madrid is a welcoming city which makes it possible to turn your university stay into an unforgettable experience. It is one of the most dynamic cities in Europe and it holds a great attraction for students from all over the world. For all these reasons, 27% of the students admitted each year come from other Autonomous Regions and they choose our University.

Academic Highlights

Our mission is simple: to provide you with the best study abroad program possible—which includes the highest quality academic and cultural experiences.

We offer unique courses that explore Engineering and, as well as other topics, through an in-depth and hands-on approach. Our world-class professors and course options at the prestigious Universidad Carlos III enhance your academic experience and provide you with new perspectives each day in class.

You take 15–16 credit hours per semester. All courses are taught in English except for the language courses. You craft your own academic experience by selecting from the listed required and optional components

Whether it is an orientation program that makes you feel prepared, house that is well-located and comfortable, or the field trips that take you places off the beaten path—we’re all about our student services. This is just one of the things we’re known for.

 Some of the ways to redefine the way you live and learn in Madrid through our cultural activities, include:

While abroad, students continue to pay their Case tuition rather than the tuition at their new institution. In addition there are several expenses students’ financial aid can potentially help to fund. These are listed in the attachments below.
