Students travelling to study in Spain will benefit from an education system that has been in development since the early 13th century. Today, a degree in Spain is recognized throughout Europe thanks to the country's alignment with the Bologna System. Students studying in Spain can pick from a variety of degrees and programs at all levels, many of which are offered in English in order to accommodate international students from all around the world. 

The Cost of Studying in Spain

While in general tuition fees for Spanish universities are some of the lowest in the whole of Europe, it really does depend on the particular school and program you intend to study. Tuition fees are based on the amount of credits a program is worth, meaning those longer, more specialized programs (e.g. medicine and engineering) are going to be more expensive. However, for there are a selection of scholarship and funding opportunities for international students wanting to study in Spain who require some financial help to do so. You can read more about these here.

Learning the Language

For those students looking for a more immersive experience when they study in Spain, most universities will offer opportunities to study the Spanish language alongside their core course work. Spoken by nearly 400 million people around the world and the official language of 20 countries, even a basic knowledge of Spanish would be a great benefit to your travels and future business dealings.

Entry Requirements & Student Visas

To be accepted into a Spanish university, international students must obtain official recognition of their previous studies and pass the official Spanish university entrance exams (Selectividad), which are given twice a year. Once students have passed the university entrance exams, they are eligible to study in Spain at any public or private university, providing they meet visa requirements to allow them to live and study in Spain (which are generally easier to obtain than other countries). You can learn more about visa requirements in our Spain country guide.
