Frequently Asked Questions

Can I work during my time in Spain?

Yes, if you are on a student visa in Spain you may work up to 20 hours per week after completing the paperwork to get a work permit. This is done after arrival and can take several months to complete, so we recommend that students should not expect to work right away. Expanish can provide a guide to completing this process, so ask our admissions or on-site staff for advice.

Do I need a visa to do a long-term program?

This is true for non-EU passport holders. The maximum length for most tourist visas in the Schengen Area is 90 days, so a student visa is required to study for longer periods. We recommend that each student contact their nearest Spanish consulate to get updated information regarding student visa requirements and the application process.

How long in advance do I need to register in order to start?

Expanish recommends that students finalize their registration with Expanish at least 8 weeks prior to departure in order to give ample time to apply for the visa and receive a response in time.

How does the payment work? Can I pay in installments?

In order to receive an enrollment letter as part of your visa application, Expanish requires the full payment of the program. Students may make payments in monthly installments, however, the full amount needs to be completed to receive the enrollment verification so if you plan on paying in installments it is best to plan in advance. Get in touch with our admissions team for details about paying in installments.

Can I take a break from classes during my program?

Yes, each long-term program has weeks of vacation included. These are automatically placed at the end of the stay, however, students may request to take their vacation during the middle of program as well. Vacation will allow students to take a break for the intensive classes and have the option to travel around Spain or Europe.
