The Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, established in 1989, is one of Europe’s preeminent public universities with one of the highest percentages (42%) of full-time and tenured women faculty in Spain. With 4,000 undergraduate students at the Getafe campus, where CIEE students take classes, the University has three schools: humanities, social sciences, and engineering. The Getafe campus is located in the southern metropolitan area, easily accessible by public transportation, approximately twenty minutes by bus and train from the Atocha train station.
Madrid is the capital of Spain and is located in the geographic center of the Iberian Peninsula. Its highlights include the historic center dating back to the Hapsburg Empire and world-renowned art museums, including the Prado, Reina Sofia, and Thyssen-Bornemisza. In addition to being a rich cultural heritage site, Madrid is a lively, artistic metropolis which can be experienced in its variety of food, tapas bars, dance shows, opera house, music concerts, outdoor parks, jazz clubs, soccer matches, ethnic neighborhoods, and contemporary theater and cinema.
