Study in Spain

​More than 24,000 US students decide to study in Spain every year, making it the third most popular destination for US study abroad. Most students who decide to do a semester (or two) abroad access Spanish universities through programs associated with their college or university. If you decide you want to complete a Bachelor’s, Master’s or Doctorate degree in Spain, you can find information here about the Spanish university system, how to apply and costs.  Many people also choose Spain as the ideal location to learn or practice their Spanish.  Short-term courses are available for all language-levels. And if you’re interested in applying for a Fulbright grant to research in Spain, then please consult the website especially designed for US students.
