The most common among students who do not want to do their entire career abroad, but do want to spend some time outside, is to do an exchange program such as Erasmus +, where you spend a semester in a university in another European city. The subjects you do during that semester can be validated at your home university. In addition, the Erasmus program offers scholarships to help you pay for your study abroad.
Living an "Erasmus experience" means living outside the home, in another country, for 6 months of your life. It is without a doubt the best way to learn a language, to know other cultures and to live the experience of sharing a flat with students from all over the world. It is, without a doubt, one of the best experiences that the university student stage has.
But there is not only the "Erasmus" option to come and study for a while in Catalonia. Each of the universities of Catalonia has a series of agreements and bilateral agreements with other universities around the world. You can find out about other options available to study abroad in the information points about the mobility programs of your university or consult the sections of the websites of the corresponding universities.
When you arrive at your home university, contact the information office for international students. There they will inform you about the faculty or school where you are going to study, they will help you with the administrative procedures (registration, schedules, etc.) and will put you in touch with the coordinator.
An important issue once you have made the decision to spend a semester of study abroad is to find accommodation. Renting a flat on your own is a complicated and expensive mission, so we recommend that you choose to rent a room in a shared flat. All are advantages: you can easily book from your home, before starting the trip, you will live with students in your same situation and also have all the expenses related to accommodation included in the same invoice, so your expenses will be controlled at all times .
