The PRESHCO
Experience

PRESHCO (Programa de Estudios Hispánicos en Córdoba) is an immersion program founded in 1981 that will engage you through your coursework, site visits, excursions, conversation partners, cultural program, and homestay. Opportunities to volunteer or intern will further integrate you into the local culture and enhance your Spanish.  Find out more.

 
My time abroad taught me that I can do anything. Between international and cross-continental travel, navigating new cities in a foreign language, and immersing myself in a dynamic experience, I learned I am able to adapt to anything. Studying abroad gave me so much self-confidence, and I also gained unforgettable friends, both in Spain and from the U.S.

Thanks to my incredible host family, Córdoba felt like home right away. My parents welcomed me with open arms, and looked after me like I was one of their own. The host families in the PRESHCO program go above and beyond to make sure our experience in Spain is nothing short of comfortable and amazing.
