hey panroamer.

When I was 19, I studied abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was a defining moment in my life. I learned how to understand different cultures, people, and environments.

Your experience should be unique. That’s what we promise. Join us on this adventure. It will be unlike anything you expect. And more.

PAUL GREEN COFOUNDER, DIRECTOR OF STUDY Abroad Panrimo

That experience led me to study at the University of Paris, Sorbonne for a semester. It was in Paris that I learned all study abroad programs are not equal. Gone were the days of small, culturally immersed groups. What I saw were huge assemblies of students, conversing only in English, learning little of the local culture. This was when I decided to start Panrimo. I wanted students to become immersed in a new country, engage with native students, and understand local customs.

ABOUT US Pangea

Rimo

WHAT WE DO

Eons ago, the world was one land mass called Pangaea. Thanks to land bridges, ancient travelers could go anywhere they wanted on foot! Unfortunately, as Pangaea broke into separate continents, traveling became more difficult. Panrimo reconnects the world, making it easier for you to follow in your ancestors’ steps.

Partnered with internationally accredited institutions in 9 countries, Panrimo programs are fun, safe, and affordable. We are committed to giving you the study abroad experience you want, with none of the hassle.

MONEY MATTERS FINANCIAL AID

Panrimo simplifies the process of transferring your financial aid by providing consortium and financial aid disbursement agreements. These forms state that the home university will accept the courses you will take overseas as applicable towards credit, which in turn allows the transfer of financial aid. Panrimo recommends making an appointment with both your study abroad and financial aid advisor to discern which types and how much of your financial aid will transfer. In most cases, the following types of financial aid will transfer to a Panrimo program: Pell Grants, Stafford Loans, PLUS Loans, Perkins Loans,. The following types of financial aid are transferable only according to your home university’s policies: Home University Grants, Home University Scholarships, State grants, loans, & 529 plans

What’s your favorite time of year/season in madrid, and why?

SPAIN madrid

I have to say spring because you can enjoy the warm weather while wandering around the lively streets of Madrid.

Favorite local food or drink? I’m afraid I cannot choose only one! When it comes to tapas, patatas bravas (deep fried potatoes in a spicy hot sauce) or croquetas (breadcrumbed fried roll, containing bechamel sauce and cubes of ham). My favorite meal typical to Madrid is cocido (Chickpeas, potatoes, carrots, leeks and meats all in the pressure cooker). Why choose madrid? Madrid is a vibrant city, full of life. You can talk to its people and enjoy tapas, wines, or sports. Or just roam around the streets and discover a Madrid touched by history in every corner. Madrid has it all!

excursions

Included in your Panrimo program:

el rastRo market On a late Sunday morning, join your friends and coordinator as you meander through this open-air flea market. If Africa met Europe, El Rastro would be the result! You’ll get a great chance to try out your Spanish as you barter for goods with the street merchants.

tapas cooking and wine tasting Don your apron and learn from a professional chef how to prepare authentic tapas and how to pair complimentary Spanish wines with each plate. You’ll return home ready to host the next dinner party with friends!

Flamenco show

Segovia

TOLEDO

Barcelona

Zaragoza

No time in Spain is complete without going to a live Flamenco show! Learn the history behind the music and the steps to the dances, then join in with your Panrimo coordinator and friends!

An architect’s paradise, Segovian culture is an intriguing blend of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim influence across the ages. Visit the Castilian Palace, built in the late 19th century before braving the maze in the Alcazar Garden.

Arguably the most beautiful city in Spain, Toledo is waiting to steal your heart. Stroll the River Tagus where Cervantes sent his fictional hero Don Quixote, visit the Cathedral for a moment of peace, and marvel at the spectacular artworks of Raphael and Goya.

Panroamers get to soak up the sand, sun, and ocean waves for the day! Walk in the steps of Picasso, taste the Basque version of tapas (pintxos), and pick up some souvenirs in the famous shopping district, Las Ramblas.

This is a city famous for folklore, food, and faith. Home to the Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar, you’ll get a chance to visit this popular pilgrimage spot, but only after a delicious meal of the local specialty: cured pork and potatoes.
