Studying abroad and developing an international mindset comes with a variety of benefits that can help you not only move further in your career but also enjoy a higher quality of life both during and after the course of your education. But if you have the opportunity to take your studies abroad, where do you go? After all, there are countless options.
Well, in my opinion, and that of countless others, Spain is a great option. The number of students taking their studies to Malaga and Marbella has grown substantially in recent years – and for good reason.
From the amazing cuisine and world-class shopping to the picture-perfect beaches and unforgettable nightlife, Spain has something for every student. Here’s why Spain should be your number one option when choosing to study abroad.
With Barcelona, Madrid, Seville and the infamous Ibiza nearby, it’s no secret that Spain’s party life is second to none. Whether you enjoy a refreshing beer at the pub or an exotic cocktail at the bar, Spain is a party paradise that guarantees a new adventure every weekend.
With an esteemed student accommodation organization like Collegiate available in many of Spain’s top universities, you’re guaranteed to enjoy every minute you spend at your new home. With fully-featured modern living spaces, social areas, and everything synonymous with luxury and security, student accommodation in Spain is unlike anywhere else.
One of the great things about Collegiate’s student accommodation is the lengths they go through to ensure that your stay is as enjoyable as possible. For example, their Wellness Box subscription service ensures that you look and feel good at all times by delivering a box of goodies to your door every month.
As a student, food is often the first thing on your mind and the last thing you want to deal with preparing. Fortunately, Spain’s famous cuisine is sure to keep you satisfied and itching to make more delicious meals. If cooking isn’t your forte, you can always opt for the countless world-renowned restaurants available around every corner.
If you’ve ever seen any pictures or videos of Spain, you might have noticed that gorgeous blue skies and a bright, burning sun is just about the only weather you can expect. It tends to get pretty warm in summer, but you can expect a great climate throughout the year. Places like Marbella tend to get only a month of rainfall in a whole year!
As a student in a new country, safety is one of the biggest and most real concerns to deal with. Fortunately, Spain’s anti-crime and anti-terrorism efforts have seen the country enter a new era of safety. People, in general, are more laid-back, friendly, and open to foreigners, ensuring that you feel safe and comfortable throughout your stay.
Aside from the above factors, Spain is also great for career opportunities, shopping, outdoor activities, and just about anything else you can wish for in a perfect student life. I know from experience that travelling to a foreign country can be daunting, but in this case – it’s well worth it.
