Colleges in Barcelona


colleges in barcelona

In Great Britain, old English schools are still called “colleges.” As a rule, these schools are the most expensive and the most prestigious ones and are not affordable for many families. In Spain, some English schools are also called “colleges” after the old English term; however, in Spain, the use of this word is merely nominal. The Spanish schools that are called simply “schools” also are considered to be prestigious educational establishments and provide high-quality British education. For example, the British School of Barcelona and Kensington School in Barcelona are among the best English schools in Spain. Some parents call the senior-level school that students must attend in order to be admitted to the Spanish universities “college” as well. In this case, parents use the term “college” to mean the last two years of regular school studies (generally, studies for students from 16-18 years old, or high school age). It is important to note that many English schools in Barcelona, as well as in other regions of Spain, grant the opportunity for children to study from 3-18 years of age.
