API in Salamanca, Spain: Medical and Health Program
Students who study abroad in Salamanca, Spain with API will take courses at the Universidad de Salamanca. Founded in 1218, the Universidad de Salamanca is the oldest university in Spain. Acknowledged by Pope Alexander IV to be one of the four great universities in the world, it stands in the company of the universities of Bologna, Oxford, and Paris. In 1492, King Ferdinand sought advice from Universidad de Salamanca leaders regarding the exploration venture of Christopher Columbus. One enters the University through the Patio de las Escuelas. It features the faces of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabel, and the walls are marked with the legacy of students, who, upon graduation, have written their initials in an ink of bull’s blood, olive oil, and herbs. Legend has it that there is a frog hidden in the sandstone carvings, and if one finds it, it brings good luck! Inside is the Escuelas Menores building, which houses the department for visiting students.
This program is aimed at students who wish to pursue the study of health sciences (medicine, nursing, health management, pharmacology, biology, etc) while studying abroad in Salamanca.
