See what students have said about studying at Expanish while living in Spain:
I Appreciate how easy it was to sign up and having the ability to add private sessions at the last moment. The learning environment is very friendly and you can feel the desire to help from all of the staff. I suggest adding private instructions to really boost your knowledge.
I only have a good experience of Expanish. The school is very modern and the teachers are very passionate about their work. Due to the activities is very easy to get to know others students. I took the 20 hours and it’s perfect, then you have time to explore the city in the afternoon and practice spanish with locals.
In my 4 weeks I learned a lot and I loved the school. The teachers are very kind. I like that there are different nationalities and different ages. It is a good school to learn fast. I have done many exchanges but this school was the best I have been so far.

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.
