Study Abroad Life in Barcelona

Life Abroad

Ready to leave it all behind and experience the European study abroad adventure you’ve always dreamed of? Studying abroad in Barcelona is the perfect way for students to immerse themselves in the Catalonian lifestyle. Walk along the Mediterranean beach, drink hot chocolate and eat churros at a local cafe, and more, all while studying and earning university credits.

Europe’s Mediterranean hub of culture and history is home to world-famous tapas, scenic beaches and mountains, and internationally recognized architecture. With over 5.5 million people, Barcelona is known as the cosmopolitan capital of Spain’s Catalonia region and is the perfect city for students to study abroad and learn about the European lifestyle.

Students have the opportunity to experience Gaudí architecture up close and personal by vising Park Güell and La Sagrada Familia, as well as learning a little of the Catalan language and watching age-old traditions, such as Castellers.

Tips about Barcelona

Tip #1: Learn some Catalan. While most people are aware that Barceloneans speak Spanish, many don’t know that Barcelona actually has two official languages: Spanish and Catalan. While you’ll be learning and using Spanish daily, it wouldn’t hurt to learn a few Catalan words, if only to impress native Barcelonians.

Tip #2: Explore Gracia. Located on the outskirts of Barcelona, Gracia is one of the trendiest neighborhoods the city has to offer. Not difficult to get to, Gracia has retained its small village feel since Barcelona’s expansion at the end of the 19th century. It’s filled with superb restaurants and local artistry, making it a must-do in our book.

Tip #3: Explore Outside of Barcelona. Although this city is bustling with unlimited opportunities to explore and lose yourself in the picturesque beach sunsets, we definitely recommend leaving and seeing what other places right outside of Barcelona have to offer. From Costa Brava to Montserrat to Sitges, you’ll fall in love with Spain no matter where your travels take you.
