Spain has come a long way since the first human settlers set foot on its soil, some thirty-five thousand years ago. Today, tourists and students prefer Spain alike, as the country, they would love to spend some time in. In fact, at any given point of time in a year, Spain has eighty-five thousand international students pursuing higher education in its universities and colleges. Spain offers a wide range of courses to its students at very low cost, or even for free, as most of its educational institutions are run by the state.
From arts and business studies to science courses, international students have plenty of academic options in Spain. Especially popular among the local and international students are the science colleges, as Spain has some of the best science colleges in the world. The graduation degrees in science are usually of three to four years’ duration and are the first academic degrees for students after they pass out of school. The B.Sc. or the Bachelor of Science degree is awarded to students who have studied natural sciences, humanities, business sciences, engineering sciences, mathematics, and informatics. As far as the post-graduation degrees in science are concerned, the duration of the Master of Science, or M.Sc. course differ.
In some universities, a post-graduate course in science is for one year, whereas in some others it is a two-year course. Because of the high academic standards of the universities and colleges in Spain, and also because of the variety in the curricula, studying science in Spain for international students has become an extremely profitable academic option. Colleges and universities of Spain are therefore widely respected across the world. What is best for international students is the fact that most courses across academic institutions in Spain are offered in English now, thereby removing the biggest hurdle that they have been facing for a long time.
