Barcelona has a very unique culture in comparison to the rest of Spain and locals speak Catalan instead of Spanish, so we suggest that students traveling to study in Barcelona pick up some basic phrase in Catalan before they arrive. The city's convenient location and RENFRE trains makes it easy for students to make quick getaways to other parts of Spain and much of Europe for an exciting weekend study break. Within the city as well, public transport such as the metro and buses are convenient and cheap, and students can even hire bikes as an easy transport method while they study in Barcelona. 

After a hard day at university, students can enjoy an active and vibrant nightlife while making the most of special student deals and discounts. If bars and clubs are not your thing, Barcelona nightlife also offers many low-key options for a more relaxed, chill evening out.
