The College of New Jersey graduate program in Mallorca is located at  Bellver International College.


Bellver International College, Jose Costa Ferrer 5, Marivent Palma 07015 Spain

Mallorca is one of the Balearic Islands, a Spanish province off of the east coast of Spain. Palma de Mallorca is the capital of the island. Mallorca was TCNJ’s first international site.

Bellver International College is a non-denominational, co-educational K-12 day school located in Cala Mayor, a tourist area along the southern coast of the island. Founded in 1950, Bellver is the longest established privately owned British school in Spain.

The modern purpose-built premises includes 22 classrooms, 2 science laboratories, gymnasium, drama hall, library, computer lab, and an art room. The college is situated close to the beach (opposite to the King of Spain’s summer palace) in a residential area 3 km from the center of Palma.

Graduation in Mallorca

If you are planning to complete all courses within your program and graduate in Summer 2017, you must pre-register to take the comprehensive exams (REGS 999). These are offered during all three sessions. A formal graduation ceremony will be held on the evening of July 28, 2017.

Computer Facilities

There are currently 30 machines for student use. All machines are served by a high-speed ADSL connection to the Internet. In addition, there are laptop portals located outside the computer lab area, and a wireless internet connection is available through much of the building.

Many students have decided to bring their own laptop computers and Ethernet cables with them to Mallorca, and while it is certainly not a requirement, it is encouraged. As an alternative, the computer lab is open from 12:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. every weekday and on a number of weekend afternoons.


Please note: TCNJ does not endorse specific accommodations.

Mallorca BeachGraduate students attending TCNJ’s Mallorca program are responsible for arranging their own housing for their two-, four-, or six-week stays in the Palma area. Local housing is available in hotels and apartments within walking distance to the school or along the main bus route. Housing options vary from inexpensive to deluxe accommodations.

Students can book accommodations either through an independent agency or directly through the host hotel. There are many websites where you can locate and explore a variety of apartment and hotel options that may suit your needs during your time in Mallorca. Those who make accommodations in Cala Mayor,  San Agusti, Illetas, or  Palma de Mallorca (Do not book in Playa de Palma; it is on the opposite side of town!) will be within easy commuting distance of Bellver International College, which is located directly across from the Marivent Palace.

For additional Mallorca housing information, please refer to our Mallorca Accommodation Chart



For more information, please contact Dr. Stuart Carroll ( or 609-771-2221), Director of Graduate Global Programs.

Registration is available for Fall 2017 courses in Cairo, Vietnam, and Taiwan.
