Staff Study Abroad

Who We Are

After years working hand-in-hand with universities and students from all ages and countries at our Expanish Language School (voted one of the best Spanish Schools in Latin America), we recognize the impact an international experience has on a personal and professional level.

Watching our students improve their intercultural skills and gain global perspective after only a short time abroad drives us to continue doing the work we love.

We mix our local business and cultural understanding to design custom educational and cultural programs at the High School and University levels in Barcelona and Buenos Aires.

Our History & Purpose

Expanish Study Abroad is dedicated to being the leading provider of innovative and dynamic programs in Spain and South America. By offering customizable academic programs and logistical services, we provide our partners with the local expertise to fully complement a meaningful educational experience abroad. Founded in 2006 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, by Agustín Vignale and Alejandro Rched, the common goal of these two Argentines was sharing their culture by offering high-caliber intercultural engagement opportunities in the Spanish speaking world. As both Expanish Study Abroad and Expanish Language School, the company quickly became a premier provider of higher education programs. The success was such that in 2017 Expanish expanded its services to Barcelona, Spain in both capacities. Since its founding, Expanish has helped more than 15,000 students explore Spain and South America, and we look forward to guiding many more on their journeys abroad.
