📝 Description

There are many reasons why students choose to study in Spain: the rich culture and history, the relatively low cost of living, the high quality of education offering a broad range of programmes, the availability of various scholarships and financial aid programs for international students, and of course the fact that Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world in terms of native speakers.

Applying for a student visa however is not always straightforward and the process can be complex and time-consuming. In this session we’ll therefore discuss the different types of student visas available for Spain, the requirements for obtaining a visa, and recommendations on how to navigate the visa application process. We will also discuss the latest updates to the visa requirements, and the panelists will provide recommendations for agents who are assisting students who are applying for a visa.
