  "abstract": "<p><strong>Introduction.</strong> This article analyses the impact of an intercultural learning intervention in a Spanish university post European Higher Education Area implementation. <strong>Objective. </strong>The main objective of our research consisted in measuring the development of intercultural competence in a group of students, before and after taking specific courses in intercultural studies and spending a study abroad semester.<strong> Methodology. </strong>A mixed methods methodology was followed, in which the measuring instrument was the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI). Additionally, in-depth personal interviews were conducted to complement the data obtained. <strong>Results. </strong>The results of this study show that the programming and sequencing of specific courses, together with experiences abroad, contribute to the development of intercultural competence. <strong>Conclusions. </strong>More intercultural learning interventions are needed in higher education courses&nbsp;in order to develop and build an intercultural campus and to educate global citizens. When applying intercultural learning interventions and intercultural methodologies, students develop their intercultural competence, a key competence for the 21<sup>st</sup> century graduates.</p>",
