Travel, Culture and Study in Spain

Published on 7/23/2011 in Spanish Culture

For many new travellers, deciding to study in another country is a big leap towards discovering the world and setting free the desire to travel in you. Choosing to study in Spain is a wonderful opportunity for many who are studying history, arts and languages in the birthplace that created culture.  Studying and being immersed in a totally fresh surrounding and making international friends with those who share a similar passion; who wouldn’t want to go there?

Ranked as the third most popular country to study abroad in for several years, Spain has undeniably won the heart of many scholars. With its rich the heritage, renowned architecture and design, Spain stands as one of the most recognized countries to travel and live.

There are plenty of reasons to a study abroad in Spain, with a full academic year to summer school programs to even short intensive language courses. If your school does not have a student exchange program as part of its system of learning, there are several of other options for you to study abroad in Spain.

StudentsBelow are some of the top resources I have found with some important aspects to think about when you prepare to study abroad in Spain for the first time:

A Student ID Card – Besides the normal student ID card from your home college or university, it would be a good decision to purchase an ISE student travel card before head abroad.  Even if it is not for study abroad reasons and you are simply travelling around Spain,  if you’re 26 or younger, the ISE card can get you student discounts on all sorts of items when you travel (all over the world, not just Spain).

Picking the right Study Abroad Program – If you have made up your mind that travelling abroad is the right decision for you but are still uncertain about which country to study in or which program is best for you, then this article will be a great guide in helping you decide. If studying abroad in Spain is what you definitely want to do, read your way to bottom of the article and you’ll have a better idea on where to study in Spain.

Why Everyone Should and can Study Abroad – If you are still weary or concerned about the study abroad programs, or if you need good motives to induce your parents, this article has some brilliant reasons why everyone should and can study abroad.

Spain’s Study Abroad Programs – Deciding where you want to live or study is an imperative factor in deciding which programs you should apply to.  For example, if you are a city person and a few months or even a year in a tiny town with no train or bus services is a complete turn-off, which is information that would be rather handy to know before you get there. The website SpainExchange offers a wide array of information for those who wish to study in Spain.

Take the opportunity to travel and or study in Spain, you will not regret it!

England is great because you won't have to study a figroen language. But anywhere in the European Union is good as well because you can learn a language but you can also travel to all of the countries in the EU as well while you are there and be able to use the same currency and see all of the great sites as well. I have also heard that Argentina, Australia, and China (specifically Hong Kong) are great places to study as well. Definitely take advantage of studying abroad in college. I am so glad I did. It really made me open up my eyes and expand my horizons and want to travel all over the world and explore new cultures.
