Study abroad. Programs for American students in Barcelona

As we have already mentioned in previous articles, it is not necessary to learn Catalan in order to study in Barcelona, ​​since most of the courses are taught in Spanish and increasingly in English, facilitating the integration of international students, especially in postgraduate studies.

In most universities you can find international relations offices, which coordinate and manage the arrival and integration of international students. If you have already chosen a university or study center, you should approach these departments to resolve any problem or doubt they have upon arrival in Barcelona. They recommend attending you in person, because the volume of foreign students is so high that often they can not answer the telephone and mail as often as they would like, and may take several days to respond.

If you are preparing your stay to come to study in Barcelona, ​​there are some websites that provide information on all the procedures, and requirements, that foreign students must take into account before coming. Here are some of them:


  • Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It is the official website of the ministry and provides all the legal information about the procedures to come to study in Barcelona and enter and live in Spain.
  • Studying in Spain. It is not an official page but the information it provides is very interesting, since it contains details of how the entire education system in Spain is organized; so, if you have doubts about what kind of study you have to study, here all your doubts will be solved. The website is only available in English and German.
  • It is the website of the Spanish Service for the Internationalization of Education (SEPIE) and you will find the catalogs with information of all the universities of Barcelona, ​​their educational offer, their scholarships and degrees.
  • Study in Spain. It is a basic web page that every international student has to know. The page offers information about the educational offer, life in Spain, legal procedures and there is a very practical search engine for universities. It is a web supported by the Ministry of Education of Spain.
