Cornell in Madrid program cancelled

In response to the challenges posed by the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), Cornell University and the School of Continuing Education (SCE) have been monitoring the Travel Warnings and Advisories posted by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Unfortunately, the CDC has raised Europe’s status to "Warning Level 3: Avoid Nonessential Travel." In keeping with the directives outlined by the Provost, all Cornell-run programs in Europe are now suspended until further notice and the Cornell Summer Program in Madrid in 2020 is cancelled.

Cornell SCE is working to help students continue their studies and meet their academic goals. See summer study options for students impacted by the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

  • Get to know and interact with native speakers
  • Participate in site visits to museums and venues of historical importance
  • Attend concerts and theater productions and experience life in a European nation

You'll live in the center of Madrid with a host family selected by the program and attend classes at the Instituto Internacional Americano.
