Why studying abroad?

Do you need to clarify certain topics that help making up your mind about Spain as a study destination? Have a look at the following articles

Student Stories

  • Can I study in Spain completely in English?

    Yes, there are many study options in English for Bachelor, Master/MBA or PhD in Spain. Alternatively there are bilingual courses in English and Spanish available, if you want to learn Spanish while you are here.

  • Do I have to speak Spanish to live in Spain?

    No, most cities in Spain are very international. Barcelona, for example, is a very cosmopolitan city and over 52% of the local residents speak English, which makes it very easy for you to fulfill your everyday needs in English. We do, however, offer Spanish courses for beginners or advanced students if you wish to learn the language – your cultural immersion will be more insightful speaking the local language.

  • What are the admission requirements to get accepted by Universities and schools in Spain?

    This varies depending on each University’s requirements and depending on the degree you are seeking. In general, you will need to provide all your previous degrees and transcripts, professional CV, motivation letter and reference letters. In some cases the University asks you to take an entry exam or an online interview with their academic dean.

  • Where can I apply?

    Applications are done online and don’t require your physical presence. Your LEAP consultant supports you with the process.

  • What are the first steps if I want to start the process of admission?

    First choose the course you want to study and the University you want to study at. The next step then is to fill out an application form and prepare the needed documents.

  • How can I get a student Visa to travel to Spain ?

    You first need to get the admission letter from the University and book an interview at the Spanish embassy in your country. The embassy asks for documents such as your passport, bank statement, admission papers, health insurance and flight tickets. If you meet all the requirements of the authorities they will issue a European student Visa with multiple re-entry for you.

  • Are there English speaking doctors in Spain?

    Yes, when choosing your medical insurance in Spain, you will have the option of getting insurance that works with English speaking customer service, doctors and clinics. We work with ASISA Salud, one of the leading private insurances in Spain who provide a network of more than 25,000 doctors in Spain and provide worldwide coverage.

  • What are the costs of living in Spain?
    Highly depends on the city. On average you can calculate with a monthly budget of 500€-1000€ which covers:
    • Accommodation: the price ranges depending on which kind of accommodation you are looking for, rooms in shared apartments (200-600€), studio flats (400-1000€), student residency (400-1000€) or entire flats (600-1300€).
    • Food & Transportation: Monthly average is (100-400€) which covers groceries, public transportion and restaurants.
    • Medical insurance: 50€/month (incl. Dental)
  • Is a Spanish University degree accredited in my home country?

    Most public and private Universities in Spain provide a globally accredited degree. To ensure it is valid in your country you will need to request information about the specific University/School where you intend to study (or ask LEAP).

  • Can I work while I am studying?

    Yes, you can. With a European student visa you are allowed to work up to 20 hours a week and up to 4 hours a day. This permit is useful if someone wants to earn additional money by working as a promoter, waitress or in tourism, for example. You are also allowed to work full-time with this permit, up to 3 consecutive months, given you have no classes at the same time (e.g. during summer break). Students usually choose part-time job when the position cannot be qualified as an internship and doesn’t relate to the student’s study program.

  • What are the chances that I find a job in Spain after I graduate?

    There is a good chance that you find an internship or full time job after you graduate in Spain since many multinational companies have expanded their operations to Spain and are constantly looking for new and diverse talent. There are many career fairs organized by schools where multinational companies participate in to draft talent directly from the institutions.

  • Can I travel home and come back to Spain with my student visa?

    Yes, your student visa will grant you a residence permit that covers the duration of your studies with multiple entry, which allows you to travel and come back anytime.

  • Can I travel Europe with my student visa?

    Yes, once you obtain your European student visa you can travel the Schengen countries (26 countries) without border controls and multiple re-entry to Spain up to 90 days at once.

Thank you so much LEAP! I could not have done it without you. The bureaucracy of Spanish public universities is... overwhelming and they reply only in Spanish. The leap team has helped me to manage all the paperwork and legalization processes in time and get acceptance for my master. Looking forward to start the program!read more

Thank you Tom Miessen and LEAP team!! From the perspective of a parent of a future student in Spain, I can say without... hesitation LEAP has been the key my daughter needed to unlock her Spanish undergraduate education dreams. I admit I was skeptical of many things at first, but Tom patiently explained everything. Even in these uncharted COVID times, LEAP was able to keep the beacon shining! Without LEAP we would have been absolutely lost.As a humble suggestion to the parents of those moving ahead with their dreams of study in Spain, let your young adult do everything. It can be frustrating to want to jump in and help, but over this time of planning and action we have seen our daughter mature greatly and overcome difficulties that will no doubt help prepare her for this part of her journey in life.read more

I got in contact with LEAP late August not expecting much from my consult, however after sitting down and talking with... them about wanting to go to Spain and my personal situations, they quickly and effectively were able to give me a personalized plan/proposal with what my study in Spain would look like. Any obstacle I faced they were always a quick text away and readily available with a realistic solution or an alternative. After receiving my proposal I immediately decided to start working with them, a month later I received my visa and was on my way to Spain. The process was quick and not as difficult because I was working with them. Honestly this experience would not be possible for me without their assistance and guidance every step of the way. Thank you!! 🙂read more

LEAP’s services are totally worth it and highly recommended.They have been amazing by helping me throughout the whole... process, supporting and explaining me all the steps to get my NIE and Social Security Number done in time. I also want to underline the extra effort they made to accomodate as much as possible my requests when getting the NIE appointment. They have always been not only competent but also kind and patient with me. I couldn’t have done it so smoothly by myself, thank you!read more
