Useful Information 

Local Overview
Granada is located between the peaks of the Sierra Nevada and the subtropical beaches of the Andalusian Mediterranean coast making for spectacular scenery, with one landscape transforming into a radically different one within a matter of a few kilometres.

Granada is enshrined in medieval history as the last stronghold of the Moors in Western Europe. Its architecture reveals the city's long and rich history. The beautiful and unique Alhambra, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, reflects the long Muslim occupation and its indelible influence on the city. Charles V’s palace takes you back to the Renaissance era, whilst the spectacular Cathedral and Royal Chapel denotes a Baroque influence.


You will be accommodated in homestay, giving you a chance to practice your Spanish in day-to-day situations and giving you a chance to really experience life in a Spanish household! This part of the experience is really about being immersed in the foreign language. You will share a room with another participant from the program and will be provided with pillows, bed linens and towels.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included most days and we’ve heard wonderful stories from past students about the exceptionally welcoming, friendly and familial experiences that they’ve had with their hosts.
Granada is a compact city and all of the homestays are within comfortable walking distance of the Centro (typically 10 to 30 minutes). Making your way through the streets to the Centro, you’ll pinch yourself to look around and realise where you are – it’s just a special place to study!

How to Apply

Planning early is the best way to ensure you will get the most out of your time abroad.

It is important that you understand the requirements and structure of your course (and major/s) to ensure that you select overseas programs that can transfer back to your degree. To help understand your course structure, you should consult the Faculty Handbook published in the year in which you commenced your course (eg. if you began a Bachelor of Commerce in 2016, you should look at the Business School Undergraduate Handbook from 2016). Pre-2017 Handbooks can be found in the handbook archive.

Example application timeline

1. Select your program > 2. Apply for academic credit > 3. Complete Sydney Abroad application > 4. Apply to host university > 5. Receive academic approval & host acceptance (October/November) > 6. Apply for OS HELP (if eligible), book flights & visa > 7. Fly safe!

Receiving your academic credit approval can take up to 10 weeks – so it’s very important that you submit your application for academic credit to your faculty as soon as soon as you have selected your program of choice.

Note: The Sydney Abroad application requires that you upload a copy of your current passport and the outcome of your academic credit request. If you do not have these available to you now you can save your application and upload them later.
