Studying at a Spanish University?Watch
I currently have a B2 in Spanish Proficiency, but I don't have any qualifications in Spanish. I self taught over the past couple of years.
So here are my questions:
How do you get accepted into a Spanish University? What are the requirements?
I know that I pay the same tuition fees as Spanish citizens because of the EU, but are loans available if you get accepted? I know that I would get a loan if I studied in the UK. How is it different to Spain?
Some loans or grants may be available but most people don't have them because they don't know they exist or they're not eligible. This is for tuition only (last year it was around €1,000 per year, might go up to €1,500 next year). There is no such thing as a maintenance loan in Spain, or a students' union or on-campus accommodation. Halls of residence (colegios mayores) do exist but they are very expensive (minimum €1,000 a month) and they're not on-campus (except for the Complutense and the Politécnica). Also, they're more like a boarding school than a uni hall (curfews and stuff), so most people live at home with their parents. Exchange students usually share flats with other internationals.
