Study in Spain

 Kingdom of Spain, as the country we commonly refer to simply as Spain is officially called, covers almost the entire surface on the Iberian peninsula in the southwest of Europe. Spain is a sovereign state and as of 1986 is a member of the European Union.

Through the ages the governments may have changed, but the state’s climate remained the same. There are three types of climate zones prevailing on the Iberian peninsula. The Mediterranean climate is characterized by dry and warm summers. It is the predominant climate in Spain. Although mild in nature, the Mediterranean climate in the central and northern-central Spain tends to be more extreme, hot in summer and cold in winter. In the south-eastern section of the country dry season extends beyond summer because of the semiarid climate. In the north of the country, winter and summer seasons are influenced by the oceanic climate relieving the region of seasonal drought. Parts of Spain such as Pyrenees, Sierra Nevada and Canary Islands are subjected to the alpine and subtropical climate.

As far as population was concerned, in 2008, the numbers reached 46 million. With a population density of 91/km2, Spain’s population is lower than most western European countries. Native Spaniards make for 80% of Spain’s total population. Many international students can also be found in Spain. Around 10% of those students are from European countries, and the numbers of students from other countries, including the U.S., continues to multiply in rapid numbers year after year.
