Semester Exchange - Universidad Pontificias Comillas 

Universidad Pontificias Comillas is a private university in Madrid, Spain. It is a Catholic university run by the Society of Jesus. Comillas is the only Spanish university that appears in the Times Higher Education 2013 ranking. After a century of university experience, at COMILLAS we are keenly aware that a great many things have changed since the university was founded. Spanish universities have moved on from the education of a select social minority toward a more universal social mission. Catholicism is no longer the Official State Religion and the Church has lived through the fruitful opening of the Second Vatican Council. Spanish society has assumed a more European and even global character.
