  • Arts and Culture. Spain has the third highest number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites certified by UNESCO (44) and 14 Intangible Cultural Heritage goods. It has recently set a new record of visitors, with more than 36 million visitors only in the first half of 2017, and we haven’t even mentioned food.
  • If you study in Spain, you won’t just be visiting, you’ll also be a student in Europe’s favorite country to study abroad. Cities like Madrid, Barcelona, Granada or Valencia receive around 2,000 international students per year.

More about Spain

Located in the southwestern Europe, Spain is a land of stone castles, vast monuments, and modern cities, with a long history influenced by the Castilian, Catalonian, Basque, Roman and Arabic cultures, to name just a few.

In the Iberian Peninsula this region shares its border with Portugal, another popular abroad destination. Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the West and the Mediterranean Ocean to the East, this country is a student paradise for anyone wishing to relax on the beach after exams.

If you’re a student bitten by the travel bug, this is an ideal study abroad destination. With North Africa just over the Straits of Gibraltar, the Canary Islands a short flight away and the rest of Europe to the northeast, why not hop over to France or check off other travel destinations on the journey? 

Spain’s geographical location makes it the ideal destination if you wish to get the most out of traveling while you study abroad.
