Advantages and Disadvantages of Studying in Spain in 2022

Spain is not only known for its favorable weather and beautiful beaches, but also for its world-class universities that attract many international students and offer a high-quality education at low tuition fees. However, studying in Spain may not be right for some people, so see below for a visual comparison to make the right decision.

Advantages Disadvantages

Spain has many high quality universities with an international environment

Higher education in Spain consists of 76 universities, 45 of which are public and the rest are private. To enter Spanish universities, students must obtain a Bachillerato certificate and pass a university entrance exam known as the “Selectividad”. The Spanish education system offers many benefits to students, it prepares them with good practical skills to be able to compete in the labor market, while providing you with a high quality education and a degree that is recognized worldwide.

Spanish universities follow the Bologna University System, where each student is required to complete a minimum of 60 credits (ECTS) at the undergraduate level. Tuition fees are calculated and presented on a per-credit basis.

Many Spanish universities are among the best in Europe and in the world. A look at the international ranking of top schools in terms of quality of education usually places a dozen Spanish universities in the top 500 in the world and dozens more in the top 1000… Many of the most prestigious colleges are concentrated in Spain’s two largest cities. Madrid (the capital) and Barcelona (the economic center).

If you don’t speak Spanish, communication may be a bit difficult

Compared to most European countries, Spaniards don’t speak English very well. Most people blame this on the local education system and the fact that national and international movies and TV shows are always dubbed in Spanish; but the truth is that most Spaniards (of all ages) have limited English skills.

Although most universities in Madrid offer English courses for foreign students, it can be difficult to communicate or understand yourself on the street if your Spanish is not good.

Therefore, before you go to Spain, you should probably learn a little basic Spanish to understand shopkeepers, ask for directions or listen/read announcements at stations. Many universities also offer additional courses to help you improve your Spanish skills, so this language barrier can be used as motivation to learn Spanish – an international language in addition to Chinese and English.

Spain is a relatively low-cost study destination

Spain is one of the most affordable countries in Europe, and you can study here without worrying about tuition and living costs.

Spain is already an exporter of vegetables, fruits and food to the rest of Europe. Many cities in Spain have developed modern agriculture, so food here is quite cheap and very fresh.

Typically, the cost of living in Spain is about 300-400 Euros/month, with food costs only between 60-80 Euros/month.

Average cost of living. 3600-4800€/year (range 100-130 million) for housing, food, travel and entertainment (this cost will vary depending on spending habits and each person’s activities)

 

If you eat in a restaurant, a meal in a restaurant costs 10-30 euros

Live slowly like a Spaniard

Spain, like other southern European countries, has a more relaxed concept of time. Spaniards are often a few minutes late for social gatherings and you should be aware of this. Don’t expect everyone to be on time except for trains/planes and doctor’s appointments.

Soon after arriving in Spain, you will notice the Spanish “mañana” mentality. mañana translates to “tomorrow” and tomorrow is the concept that there is always time to do something at another time, perhaps later, and that everything can be done tomorrow. In Spain, things move slowly and don’t always work out, but the locals don’t mind, and you shouldn’t try to live fast – especially when the weather is nice and there’s sangria to enjoy. People live leisurely and slowly, and you should try to understand and apply this way of life too, otherwise you will be totally disappointed with the pace of life in Spain.

The opportunity to discover and enjoy Mediterranean cuisine

Spain occupies 85% of the Iberian Peninsula and borders Portugal, Gibraltar and the Principality of Andorra in the southwest of Europe. It is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the Mediterranean Sea to the east coast. North Africa is less than 16 kilometers south of the Strait of Gibraltar, where the southernmost territories of Ceuta and Melilla are located. The Balearic and Canary Islands, part of Spain’s 17 autonomous regions, are also close by, while France is located in the northeast and is connected to the rest of the European continent by road, rail and air. Spain’s geography alone makes it an ideal location for short trips within Europe, as well as for short trips within the country.
