21 Sep Welcome international students in Spain
“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page”
To travel is to discover, grow, learn, meet… with every trip and every experience we write our own story; and over this idea Pack to Spain was founded. A project created by students for students whose objective is to offer a unique experience to the international students that come to Madrid.
When we finally decide that we are going to study abroad, we have joy as one of the main goals. Of course, before that, we have to plan and bear in mind a few other things such as where to live, where to study and how to get the corresponding visa or other documents. This is something that we know in Pack to Spain very well as we have also been exchange students and we are aware of the difficulties that living in an unfamiliar country may suppose.
In Pack to Spain we want to help the students that chose Madrid as their destination having a great year abroad and enjoying a year full of experiences, activities and different trips. We want our clients to have the best possible experiences, and for that, we offer them a personalized service according to their specific needs.
We want to help every student, bachelor’s degree students or master’s students by:
- Finding the perfect accommodation either next to their university or in the city center.
- Processing a Spanish bank account easily. Thanks to our partnership with Banco Santander, the student will only have to go to the university’s branch office to sign the opening of the account after we have prepared everything.
- Getting the transport card which can be used since their first day in Madrid. Pack to Spain works closely with the Consorcio de Transportes de Madrid to get the card and we will help finding the best option according to the student’s needs.
- Obtaining a SIM Card for their phone or a Smartphone with a Spanish card as well. All of this from day 0 thanks to the partnership with Movistar, the most important Spanish telecommunications company.
At the same time, when we leave our country or city to study abroad, we also want to know other cultures, meet new people and, of course, have fun! That’s why Pack to Spain is developing the Club Pack to Spain, a community of international students where they will get access to cultural activities, discounts, parties, visits to museums, trips to other Spanish cities and customized assistance during their stay.
As alumni from Carlos III University of Madrid, we have a close relationship with personal from the university and as a result, we have created a partnership with different programs to help their students settle in Madrid and enjoy their year in Spain.
If you are thinking about coming to Spain and need any help let us know and we’ll get you ready!
