For most of our students, deciding to study at ESADE means finding a new place to live and adapting to new customs. We want you to be comfortable and get the most out of your time here in Barcelona.
On the basis of the experiences of former students who have come to spend an unforgettable year in this city, we encourage you not to leave certain key tasks for the last minute:
- Get a head start in your search for housing (e.g. a shared flat, a studio, or a room in a university residence). A good time to start is right before summer.
- In Spain, the healthcare system is public. If you are a resident of the European Union, you can have a health card made in your home country. Otherwise, you can take out a private health insurance policy.
- If you come from outside of the European Union, you will need a student visa.
