    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Introduction.&lt;/strong&gt; This article analyses the impact of an intercultural learning intervention in a Spanish university post European Higher Education Area implementation. &lt;strong&gt;Objective. &lt;/strong&gt;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.&lt;strong&gt; Methodology. &lt;/strong&gt;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. &lt;strong&gt;Results. &lt;/strong&gt;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. &lt;strong&gt;Conclusions. &lt;/strong&gt;More intercultural learning interventions are needed in higher education courses&amp;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&lt;sup&gt;st&lt;/sup&gt; century graduates.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
