Seville Studies Abroad - Andalusia

 

Studies abroad in Andalusia - SpainLocated in the south,  Andalusia is always among the favourite regions in Spain for study abroad. Not only does it have amazing history and culture, great food, friendly people, and is one of the sunniest parts of Europe.

 

It offers just the perfect kind of atmosphere for students: unlike other popular destinations in big cities, Andalusia offers a slightly slower pace of life where it is easier to soak up the language, the culture and the sun! 

 

Andalusia is the largest region in Spain with a huge variety of cultures and customs, where the heritage of the ancient Christian, Jewish and Muslim cultures blends in with modern infrastructures. However, it’s also the region which best represents the typical traditions that are a must when coming to Spain: sun-kissed streets, flamenco, enjoying tapas outdoors, bullfighting, infinite beaches, and monuments that testify to adventures of centuries gone by.

Study in Spain central region

 

Studies abroad in Central Region - SpainThe central region of Spain is home to the country’s capital, Madrid, as well as other picturesque medieval cities. Many options which provide countless opportunities for cultural, educational and recreational enjoyment!

One of the most popular reasons for choosing this region is the specific accent of Spanish which is spoken in central Spain, called Castilian Spanish. It is considered the accent with the clearest pronunciation and therefore one which foreigners tend to find the easiest to understand.

Madrid offers a diverse and international environment, great weather, a buzzing outdoor lifestyle and is a cultural hot-spot. So if you are in to history, literature, art, theatre and cultural events, it may be the perfect place for you!

Just a short drive from Madrid, the central region of Spain also boasts beautiful smaller cities which stand out for their picturesque charm. Great walking cities where students will easily learn to get around, World Heritage sites that exude medieval heritage, vibrant and safe destinations which are ideal setting for young, study abroad students.

Study in Galicia

 


Studies abroad in Galicia - SpainGalicia is a coastal region located in northwestern Spain, with the perfect combination of beaches, forests and green wilderness, beach and vibrant city life. If you prefer cooler weather over the typical Spanish heat, this northern region might be an ideal destination for you.

 

Galicia gives students the chance to discover a part of Spain that is off the beaten path. With its strong Celtic connections, it boasts many charming cities which are small enough for the students to get around confidently and easily.

 

Its capital, Santiago de Compostela, was designated a World Heritage City by the UNESCO in 1993 because of the architectural value of its old city center. Although it is best known for being the final destination of world-famous pilgrimage route «el camino de Santiago» (Saint James’s Way), Santiago is also a lively university town (home to one of the best universities in Spain) with a bustling student vibe and high quality of life.

They are carefully selected families with good living standards who are interested in cultural exchange, offering a “home away from home”. Students will have a great opportunity to improve their language skills by immersing themselves in a 100% Spanish environment. Homestays also allow them to experience native customs by the hand of locals, as well as traditional home-cooked meals and general daily life in Spain with a family.

 

Those who prefer to stay at a boarding house will benefit from a student environment in which friendship, responsibility and independence are inherent, providing them with the ideal preparation for their adult life. The student residences at our boarding schools offer first-rate facilities which commonly include swimming pool, gym, library, study rooms, TV lounges, and fantastic outdoor sports areas.
