prestigious universities like Allocate, Barcelona, Granada and Madrid to
name a few.

facilitate the study programs. Student loans are also available. Agencies

opportunities. A student can opt for student housing that houses more than
a hundred students such as apartments or casa universitarias (off campus
shared furnished flats or residencies).

available in which the student can stay with a host family to get the real
