Academics Location
At Instituto Franklin, the international institute of the University, students can choose from approximately 40 courses in six different disciplines: language-including Spanish for heritage learners; Spanish and Latin America literature; humanities; social sciences; international relation and business. Almost all courses are taught in Spanish; therefore, it is recommended that students take at least one or two semesters or Spanish prior to study at the Instituto Franklin. Advanced Spanish students can take courses across the curriculum at Alcala University with Spanish students. Several departments at the University (English, American Studies, and business) have extensive offerings in English.

The University of Alcalá and the Insituto Franklin are located in the town of Alcalá de Henares, one of the most important centers in the Henares Corridor. Founded by Cardinal Jiménez de Cisneros in the early 16th century, Alcalá de Henares was the world's first planned university city. The town's Renaissance history is visible in many of its buildings and in its layout, and has been designated a World Heritage Site. Alcalá boasts a wide range of restaurants for every taste and budget. In addition, there are frequent commuter trains and buses linking Alcalá to nearby Madrid.
