The program fee varies each year based on exchange rate, housing costs, room type (single or double), etc. Recently the program fee has been about $1,200. Airfare is not included.
The program fee is based on the number of participants and may change before the start of the program.
The fee includes:
- Single-room or double-room housing in a Spanish home
- Breakfast and dinner daily
- Laundry service
- Use of classroom, internet and library at Instituto International de Madrid
You should bring some money for transportation, lunches, textbooks, and personal expenses. We estimate the total you should expect to spend to be around $3,000 (program fee, plus additional expenses mentioned here).
Financial aid does not currently cover IAP programs like IAP Madrid. However you can apply for scholarships through MIT.
Final payment due
