To study in our School, EASDB, you must:
-Be admitted and registered as a student.
-Obtain a student visa or a stay permit for the purpose of studies.
Whether your study stay is less than 90 days (short-term) or more than 90 days (national visa) we will provide you with supporting documentation proving your admission to the School and the reason for the stay in the Erasmus+ mobility programme.
EU citizens who plan to stay in EASDB for study purposes need to apply for a residence authorisation for the length of their stay and is renewable. Within a month of your entry into Spain you must apply for an authorization for a study stay at the Foreign office.
You must prove:
-Admission to EASDB.
-Health insurance and a health certificate for long stays.
-Sufficient financial resources to cover your living expenses, the costs of your studies and your return. International grants such as Erasmus+ are usually acceptable as financail resources.
Non EU-citizens who plan to stay in EASDB for study purposes for more than a 90-day stay are in need of a national visa (long term visa). The firs step is to contact the Spanish embassy or consulate in your country and follow the standard procedure (the EASDB will give you the acceptance letter required to prove your acceptance at our institution). Once in Spain, you must apply for an authorisation for the length of you stay with us at the Foreign Office. The student visa is granted for the whole duration of the course and it is renewable.
We also recommend for all students to register their personal data along with their travelling details at the “Ministry of Foreign Affairs travellers registration”, (registro del viajero del Ministerio de Exteriores) so you can be located during your cultural trips across our country during your stay, in case of an emergency.

Health care and insurance
If your are a student from European Union state members, you are covered by the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) to get medical assistance at public health institutions (National Social Security System).
In order to obtain this service, you need to contact your own Social Security Office before arriving to Burgos.
Nevertheless, the EHIC coverage may varies in each country, specifically in case of death, repatriation and specific medical procedures. It is important to contract private insurance which at least covers these possibilities and send a copy to us before arriving to Burgos.
If you are a student coming from outside the European Union, you need to be property insured and have health insurance in your own country that cover the basic Spanish requirement, before arriving to Burgos.
It is also wise to include in the contract private insurance cancellations and lost luggage.
Our EASDB does not operate student housing of its own.
You should, therefore; choose one of the following options:
Optiona A: renting
You can rent a flat on your own or shared with other students; or private rooms. You can check availability at our Notice Board. If there are no choices left, Burgos has weekly local papers carrying adverts for whole flats for rent (“Alquileres”), or rooms in flats already occupied by students.

You would need to make a registration and pay a fee. Please, make sure not to make any prepayments for the apartment unless the people you contact with give you some sort of document verifying the arrangement you have agreed on. There is a warning in the site.
Foreign students will be offered assistance by our EASDB’s International Office.
