Before you apply for a student visa in Spain, you should be well-versed with the two types of Schengen student visas that are there in Spain. The difference between both lies in the duration of the study course and the documents required.
➔ Short term student visa-
◆ This visa allows the visa holder to get enrolled in a short course offered by various colleges and universities such as language courses.
◆ This visa lasts for up to 180 days and the student cannot enroll in a course extending 90 days.
◆ This visa cannot be extended in any circumstances.
➔ Long term student visa-
◆ The visa holder is allowed to take up courses that have a duration of more than 6 months.
◆ After the visa application, the student has to apply for a residence card within a month of arrival in Spain.
For a long-term student visa, there are some additional requirements in the documents list.
A student is required to provide
● Medical certificate
● Certificate of no criminal conviction
The application fee for the Schengen study visa is $67.
