What to study in Spain?
The Spanish Higher Education system
The Spanish Higher Education system is made up of 84 universities (50 public and 34 private), in addition to 480 research institutes and 67 science and technology parks. As a member state of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), all official degrees awarded by Spanish universities are recognised for academic and professional purposes in 53 countries worldwide, 45 of which are European.
They are also top-quality universities that are well-positioned in international rankings by subject area, widely internationalised, given that Spain is the favourite destination for ERASMUS+ students.
