Study in Spain

Spain is a popular location for British nationals who want to study for their degrees. This is partly due to its long history of education, with its oldest university, Universidad de Salamanca, dating back to 1218. The warm, sunny climate is another appealing factor. 

As a result, it is important to know what you need to do so you are prepared to study in Spain.

Spanish Visas

One of the main things you will need is a Spanish Visa. There are two options for visas if you want to study in Spain. These are the Spanish Study Visa, and the Spanish Internship Visa.

We can assist you with the process of applying for these visas.

Internship Visa

This is for current students or recent graduates who wish to carry on their academic studies in Spain after being offered an internship. If you are currently studying, it will directly contribute to your degree. 

This degree also allows you to work to support yourself whilst studying in Spain. 

Some of the requirements for this visa include a criminal background check, authorisation of your internship, and identity documents, among others.

You can find out more about the Internship Visa on Spanish Visas.

Study Visa

Unlike the Internship Visa, the Study Visa is broader and is for choosing what you want to study in Spain. It can be used to study for a degree, a doctorate, a training placement, or other forms of studying. 

However, the visa is not necessary if you plan on studying for less than 90 days in Spain.

It also allows you to carry out work to support yourself. 

Some of the requirements for the Study Visa include a medical certificate, identity documents, and a valid passport, among others.

Notarising and legalising your documents to study in Spain

Both visas will require that you get your documents legalised and notarised. 

Documents such as passports, enrolment letters and university confirmation letters will require notarisation. As we are a registered notary, we can do this as part of our Spanish visa services.

The only thing your documents need to be legalised for use in Spain is an Apostille. This is a document that is acquired from the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO). We can manage the whole process for you, so you do not have to worry.
