"We’ve had the very good fortune to work with SAIIE for the past six years."

Because of their creative, thoughtful vision, their professional, organized, and accessible team, and their tireless work on our behalf, Carleton College enjoyed two fantastic faculty led experiences in Sevilla.  We are excited to continue relying on SAIIE to make our future programs in Spain so successful.  From home stays, to excursions, to service projects to the day-to-day details, what truly sets SAIIE apart is their personal attention to our students and their remarkable ability to connect our group with Sevillian life and culture!  At every step of the process, we’ve been incredibly impressed with every facet of their organization and we know our next group of students is going to benefit from their exceptional service and over 30 years of study abroad experience!

“From the minute we arrived we felt in safe hands and hardly had to worry about a thing…”

BobSAIIE’s custom-made programs consider your specific needs, are flexible, and well-organized. The SAIIE staff did a fantastic job organizing our program for us. From the minute we arrived we felt in safe hands and hardly had to worry about a thing as it was all taken care of. They organized a sports camp for the students to teach a variety of American sports to the Spanish kids which was great and our students really loved teaching the kids and building relationships with them all whilst learning about a different culture. The SAIIE staff worked non-stop to provide every service and request for our program. I would highly recommend anyone thinking about organizing a faculty led program in Spain to do it with SAIIE!
