I had a great experience meeting with Cristian at Immigration Lawyers Spain. I was referred to the firm by an old friend who was extremely impressed with the service she received. My first meeting was informal, informative and great value for money as the team took their time to explain my options for immigration very thoroughly. This type of personal attention I have not experienced with lawyers before- especially not in a foreign country. I left with a very clear understanding of the process and options and now I am well on my way to become a permanent resident of my most favourite city in the world.

We will manage the whole process for you and save time while obtaining your residence permit as a student.

Frequent asked questions about the student visa

Can I study in Spain without a visa?

No. You will need to apply for your student visa in order to become a legal resident during the time in which you will be coursing your degree/course/masters/P.hD.

Nevertheless, if your course or studies take less than 90 days, there is no need to get it. You will have enough time with your tourist visa. 

Can I stay in Spain after graduation?

Your student visa is linked to the duration of your studies.

This means that, once your first year of classes is finished, you will have to renew and extend the duration of your student visa.

Furthermore, you can also move to a work permit or get back to your origin country after graduating. 

Do I need a NIE number to study in Spain?

Yes. The NIE is the basic ID number that any foreign citizen needs in Spain. Nevertheless, you will obtain it directly once you get your visa. The extra step you will need to take is to get the TIE (the actual card that contains the NIE). 

Can I get a job that is not the internship one?

Yes. The student visa just allows you to both internship and to have another job. And that without the need of getting from scratch a residence and work authorization like a work permit.

Can foreign students work in Spain?

Yes. Foreign students can work in the country with their student visa. They are allowed to internship both under curricular and extracurricular job contracts. 

Bear in mind that in the case of doing a curricular internship, you will need a contract signed between your university and the company you will be working for. 

And for the extracurricular ones, if your job occupies the vast majority of you time, your employee must initiate a legal application procedure at the Immigration Office. 

Furthermore, students can also ask for a residence permit to internship in the country, moving out from their current student visa and obtaining a residence authorization that allows them to work.  

How many hours per week am I allowed to work?

You are allowed to do a total of 40 hours per week taking into consideration both hours at class and hours worked. Nevertheless, bear in mind that the total amount of hours you can internship per week is 20. This means that if you just go to class 5 hours per week, you can’t work 35. Only 20. 

In the case of doing an internship, it will be the university the one defining the total amount of time you are allowed to work.
