Other organisations are offering a Spanish student visa programme so let’s compare some of them.

What is a Spanish student visa programme, and how does it work?

Before comparing a few Spanish student visa programmes, I will explain what they do.

Under Spanish law, a Spanish student visa programme assumes that you are coming to Spain for more than three months to be a student with a Spanish government recognised training organisation. A training organisation is recognised by the Spanish government if it is either overseen by the Spanish education ministry or is an accredited Cervantes Institute Spanish language school.

As well as letting you come to Spain for up to one year, a Spanish student visa allows you to work part-time (20 hours a week) in a sector related job. This means that if you come to study Spanish (a language), you can teach English (a language) to create an income while studying in Spain.

You may want to come to Spain for more than 3 months, or you may already be in Spain and need to renew your student visa. Either way, you will need to find a Cervantes Institute accredited Spanish student visa programme to get you your first student visa or renew your current student visa.

What to look for in a Spanish student visa programme

Some organisations in Spain, like EBC, offer a combined, one-year study programme that qualifies as a Spanish student visa programme. The EBC one-year Spanish student visa programme comprises a four-week Trinity CertTESOL course and a one-year Spanish language programme with a Cervantes Institute accredited school.

Comparing Spanish student visa programmes

It is clear that EBC is the best value package for the following reasons:

  1. The Trinity CertTESOL is the best certificate on the list because it is the only one that is Ofqual level 5 and accepted by the British council.
  2. The Trinity CertPT has no competition because the other schools are not accredited. The CertPT is Ofqual level 6.
  3. You also get the EBC International TEFL Certificate, so you get a TESOL and TEFL certificate.
  4. You get a one-year Spanish Student Visa.
  5. The EBC Spanish language programme is with the best Cervantes Institute accredited Spanish language schools in Barcelona, Madrid, Malaga and San Sebastian. The Madrid school’s owner is the President of FEDELE. FEDELE is the Spanish Federation of Associations of Schools of Spanish as a Foreign Language.
  6. You can take your Trinity CertTESOL or CertPT course online. Your CertTESOL certificate does not show whether or not you studied online.
  7. When you take your Trinity CertTESOL or CertPT course online, you can choose a future date for your Spanish classes, and you do not have to pay for them until you set a date.
  8. Worldwide, lifetime job placement is included free of charge.
