SPAIN’s attempts to attract more foreign students received a boost when it was named second best country in the world for pupils heading abroad.
The inaugural Best Countries rankings from U.S. News & World Report were unveiled at the World Economic Forum at Davos in January.
Spain scored high in culturally accessibility, fun, top-quality universities and cultural attractions, behind only Italy from 60 ranked countries.
