We have a large community of international students at BU – currently 1,600 students from around 140 different countries’.

We are always happy to welcome new Spanish students onto our undergraduate, postgraduate, research and top-up courses. We are also pleased to offer several exchange programmes through our partner universities in Spain.

We will help you with your application to study at BU, or you can speak to one of our representatives in Spain who can offer assistance with your application. If you'd like more general advice about the UK education system, visas, scholarships or the variety of courses on offer, you should contact the British Council in Spain.
