Students from the European Union:
Nationals of European Union countries do not require a visa. Nonetheless, they should apply for a NIE (Foreign National Identity Number) upon their arrival in Spain. This document is needed, for example, to open a bank account, buy a discount transport card, or use the health service.
Students from other countries:
Foreign nationals of countries outside the European Union wishing to study or research in Spain for a period longer than three months must apply for a study visa. To apply for a study visa, prospective students should contact the Spanish Consulate to process the study visa with the certificate or letter of acceptance issued by Miami Ad School Madrid. Requirements are below.
The visa is processed by Spain’s Consulates-General abroad, which have specialist staff available to answer enquiries. It is not possible to enter Spain with a tourist visa and then apply for a study visa. Students entering the country only with a tourist visa will have to return to their country of residence and obtain the visa there.
Once you are in Spain, you must apply to TIE within one month of your arrival.
