Spanish universities

SPANISH universities are eager to attract more foreign students.

Spanish-universitiesEducation minister Inigo de Vigo has called on university deans to make studying in Spain ‘more attractive’.

Currently, only 2.9% of international students studying in Europe opt for Spanish universities.

The UK, Switzerland and Austria see the largest number of European students in Europe, accounting for 51% of all of Europe’s international students.

Dr Carlos Conde Solares, a Senior Lecturer in Hispanic Studies at the University of Northumbria, UK puts Spain’s unpopularity down to three things: ‘lack of prestige’, ‘political rigidness of individual universities’ and ‘lack of funds spent on advertising’.
