Hello!

The difficulty varies depending on whether you are an EU student or you are coming from outside the European Union.

If you are an EU student
Following the application of the Lisbon Convention, if you want to study in Spain and you are an EU student, you have a valid school leaving certificate and you have taken and passed the university entry examinations in your home country, then you already meet the requirements for basic eligibility to study at university in Spain. In addition, you also have to meet specific requirements for the study program you selected.

If you have not taken or passed the university entry examinations in your home country, you will have to pass the Spanish university entry examination for foreigners, called “Selectividad para extranjeros”.

If you are not EU student
If you already have a valid school leaving certificate, the only thing left you’ll have to do is to pass the Spanish university entry examination for foreigners. If you have a good command of Spanish, the exam shouldn’t be a problem. If your level of Spanish is not good, I would recommend you first improve your skills in Spanish and then take the test.

I hope the information is of help.

If you would like to lean more about how to study in Spain, I’d recommend you visit our web site: http://www.studyineurope.eu/study-in-spain

Welcome to Europe!

There is a lot of universities, exactly where?

I have budgeted $1000 for 3 days
Riga, Stockholm, Oslo, Bergen

Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.

No. There are classes that are taught using the english language. You just have to find them.

Eat the food, use the wrong verbs, and end up getting charged double.

Non Spanish Students:
Students that have a foreign or non-Spanish undergraduate degree are allowed to enroll in a Masters program as long as there is:

* Official recognition of their degree according to the current legislation * Authorization by the host university after checking that the courses and studies taken at the previous university are of equivalent academic level to the corresponding Spanish courses and that they allow the same access to graduate studies
