CISThe College for International Studies was founded in 1981, and is an American University in the very heart of Madrid in one of the nicest parts of the city.  Our building is easily accessible, as well as in an extremely safe location.  We take pride in offering European students an American higher education closer to home just as much as we do in offering Americans precisely what they are used to, just in lovely Madrid, Spain.

CIS – Provides a close learning environment that is often described as “one big family.”  We administrators and professors do all that we can to make sure that our students are comfortable as we guide them through what will ultimately be one of the biggest events of their lives — college in an international environment.  In many cases, college in an international environment in a foreign country.  Every single member of our staff and faculty at CIS have lived and studied in countries other than their own, so we understand the needs of our non-Spanish students who make Madrid their temporary home, as well as the needs of our Spanish students who will ultimately finish up their Bachelor’s Degree elsewhere.
