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 apply for this program, students must:
- have completed their second semester or higher by the program start date;
- have good academic, judicial, and financial standing at their institution; and
- will enroll full-time during their study abroad semester.
Note this program is different from the First Year Abroad program, for students accepted to Berklee to complete their first year on the Valencia campus.
Students who wish to apply to Berklee Study Abroad must submit the online application before the application deadline.

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.
