Universidad Antonio de Nebrija , Spain
Studying in Madrid with ERASMUS!
Madrid is the capital and centre of Spain. The city is not only the European capital with the most cloudless days of the year but is also interesting in other ways. With about 3 million inhabitants, it is an international center that has a lot to offer culturally and can impress students with its nightlife.
The Universidad Antonio de Nebrija is one of the 10 best universities in the country. But with only 4000 students (incl. 500 Internationals), it is relatively large and not a massive university. It offers international students a lot of flexibility in their choice of courses.

Application for an ERASMUS scholarship
We have an ERASMUS partnership with Nebrija Universidad and a certain number of exchange places per semester. You can apply for these places.
The ERASMUS application procedure consists of two steps:
Step 1: Application to the EBC University
You apply to us for a place at university and for the ERASMUS scholarship. Please register at the International Office and hand in the following documents:
- Letter of motivation in English (maximum one page); include up to two alternative ERASMUS partners in the last paragraph of your cover letter, in which you would be interested if we had to cancel your first request.
- Performance record of the EBC University (via the virtual campus)
The best applications will be selected from all applicants of the EBC University, it counts academic achievements, language skills and the quality of your motivation letter, in which you show that you have dealt with your desired university.
We will inform the successful students by email and ask them to explicitly accept their place. If you accept the place, we will nominate you at the partner university and only then will you apply with the regular application documents for the university, see step 2.
If you have received a rejection, you will automatically be placed in the procedure for moving up to the alternative universities of your choice or we will try to offer you an alternative. We will then send you an offer by email. Once you have accepted the offer, we will nominate you with the partner and only then will you apply to this university with the appropriate documents (see step 2 below).
Step 2: Application to Nebrija Universidad
After the EBC University has officially nominated you at the partner university, apply there.
The application procedure differs from university to university. You will find out what you need to do soon after your nomination.
The host university also reserves the right to decide on admission.

Along with your application, you submit a Learning Agreement (LA) on which you enter courses or modules amounting to at least 20 ECTS credits that you would like to take. In Europe, the number and creditworthiness of the courses varies, so make sure you get precise information. The International Office and the Dean's Office will confirm your selection and ask for corrections if necessary. The LA is the basis for the recognition of courses at the EBC University and is therefore binding.

The following information is subject to change, as visa requirements may change. Before applying for a visa, be sure to visit the website of the competent Spanish authority and find out about the exact and current conditions!
Citizens of EU member states do not need a visa to enter Spain. All other countries must apply for a visa before departure in order to enter Spain. This can be applied for at the Spanish Embassy or Consulate of your home country.
For citizens of countries outside the European Union, there are different types of residence permits, which mainly differ according to the purpose and duration of entry. For example, a tourist visa cannot easily be converted into a student visa. It is also forbidden to stay in Spain on a tourist visa and study in Spain at the same time.
We recommend an early application, as experience has shown that the processing time can be quite long and documents with Spanish translation may be required.
