Since a recent reform of the law, it is possible to apply for a student visa while being legally in Spain on a tourist visa or Schengen visa. You have to bear in mind that the Student Visa is not a residence permit, but a stay authorisation.
We offer personalised advice to students wishing to renew a visa to continue their studies in Spain. The student visa is for NON-EU nationals, who wish to live and study in Spain without performing economic activity.If you are in Spain on a Student Visa and you wish to extend it in order to keep on carrying out your studies in Spain, you will have to follow the procedure that we will guide you.
ABOUT THE STUDENT VISA IN SPAIN
The renewal is only allowed if you continue or build on the studies for which you were granted the first visa.
After 3 years, you can apply for a work permit.
LIVE IN SPAINThe student permit will allow you to complete your career, master's or doctorate for one year (with the possibility of renewing the visa).
WORK AS A STUDENTIn addition to studying, this visa allows you to apply for a work authorisation. The student can obtain a permit to work in a specific company and geographical area, for a maximum of 20 hours per week.
The duration is equal to that of the employment contract held by the interested party, but, in any case, its validity may not exceed the duration of the student visa.
MODIFICATION OF THE STUDENT VISAOnce you have been in Spain on a Student Visa for at least 3 years, and you have finished your studies, you can modify your Student Visa into a residence and work permit as an employee or as a freelancer,if you comply with the requirements.
VALID FOR INVESTIGATIONThe student visa also allows citizens in charge of carrying out research tasks in Spain to reside.
