Spain is one of the top educational destinations in the world. Virtually no other country has so much to offer students interesting in studying abroad. Here are a few quick reasons that make Spain the best choice for international students:
Socializing - The culture in Spain is filled with tradition and art but it's also famous for having fun. The nightlife in some cities, like Madrid, is nothing short of legendary. The cities are filled with bars and people are out and about sharing tapas and drinks with friends late into the night. There are also many cultural ‘fiestas’ and celebrations to witness like the world famous ‘Fallas’ in Valencia or the tomato throwing festival in Buñol.
Art and architecture – Spain has many of the world’s renowned museums like the Museo El Prado or the more modern Reina Sofia in Madrid. The country is filled with Roman and Gothic architecture and boasts one of history’s most famous architects in Antonio Gaudi. And let’s not forget, Spain is the home of flamenco and Spanish dancing!
Weather – Spain has exceptional weather with sunshine pretty much all year around. The winters are mild as compared to the US Midwest or northern European countries and the southern parts of Spain are warm all year round, perfect for enjoying the endless miles of beaches on all sides of the Iberian Peninsula.
Location – Spain is within a train ride or a short flight of many other European countries. Students can easily visit Portugal, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, England and many other countries while spending a semester or year abroad in Spain.
Sports - Spaniards loves soccer/football, the world’s sport. With Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, Spain is head and shoulders above any other country in terms of total European Championships won.
