Studying in the Spanish University: A Guide for U.S. Advisors and Students. Working Paper #17.
Parmantie, Miguel A.
This guide, primarily intended for U.S. university students who, with the aid of a study abroad adviser, wish to enroll into a Spanish university as part of a U.S. undergraduate degree program, provides information on various aspects of the system of higher education in Spain. Topics covered include: selection of the Spanish university; life and language on the Spanish campus; and course selection, studies, and examinations. Major differences identified include: university education in Spain is generally rigid in structure; campus overcrowding is a problem; the lecture method predominates; and urban housing is both scarce and expensive.
