How to Apply
The Berklee Study Abroad program is open to current undergraduate students attending Berklee College of Music or Berklee Online (online degree students), in addition to those from Emerson College, Universidad San Francisco de Quito, and Tecnológico de Monterrey through a special partnership agreement.
In order to be eligible for this program, students must:
- have completed at least two semesters or more by the program start date;
- have good academic, judicial, and financial standing at their institution; and
- maintain full-time enrollment while abroad.
Non-Berklee students must also meet the study abroad eligibility requirements of their home institution.
This program is different from the First Year Abroad program, for students accepted to Berklee to complete their first year on the Valencia campus.
When to Apply
There is limited space in the program and students are encouraged to apply as early as possible. You can apply up to one year in advance.

Once we review your application you will receive a decision by email. Some applicants may be contacted for an in-person interview.
Participation in the program is contingent upon continued good academic, judicial, and financial standing each semester leading up to the semester abroad.
Passports and Visas
All participants must have a passport that is valid for at least six (6) months after the program end date. If you do not currently have a passport, apply for one now as it could take six weeks or longer to get one. You will need your passport at least three months before the program start date in order to apply for a student visa.
Most students will also need a student visa to study in Spain. Read more about passports and visas.
