Universidad de Murcia is located in the sunny, southeastern region of Spain near the coast. Founded in 825 by the Moors, the city is known for its stunning architecture, delicious local cuisine and cultural festivals, such as its Holy Week Procession. Murcia has a warm Mediterranean climate and its fertile soil, nurtured by the Segura River, has provided the nickname for the city: the orchard of Europe. 

Universidad de Murcia, founded in 1915, is a public research university that offers modern facilities and excellent academic opportunities. The university is divided into four campuses located in Murcia and the surrounding areas: La Merced, Espinardo, San Javier and a Health Sciences campus. The Business Administration & Primary Education program is located on the Espinardo campus.  

ISEP students immerse themselves in Spanish culture by taking university classes with local students and living in an apartment in the city. The university has an active student body, and ISEP students can participate in sports teams, cultural activities and student groups. The International Relations Office organizes a welcome week for international and local students at the beginning of each semester to participate in social activities and excursions around the region, in addition to the pre-session Spanish language course. ISEP students can also take advantage of Murcia’s “buddy program,” which matches new international students with a local student during the first few weeks of the semester.

ISEP students studying in Murcia receive a combined monthly housing and meal stipend. Students live in shared student apartments, and search for accommodation using Murcia's approved housing provider, VIMUR. While accommodation assistance is provided, ISEP students are ultimately responsible for booking their own accommodation. 

To receive their ISEP stipend students will open a local bank account on arrival. Due to the administrative procedures involved, the first stipend takes up to three weeks to disburse. Students should have sufficient funds to cover expenses during this initial period (housing and meals, housing deposit, etc.) and budget accordingly. The first stipend payment will include benefits beginning from students' arrival date.

All ISEP students will be expected to budget their housing and meal stipend to pay monthly rent and purchase groceries and meals. Students can ask their ISEP Student Services Coordinator for tips, as well as checking out ISEP's resources for Budgeting for Study Abroad.
