The vicinity to Africa, the students’ quality of life and the opportunity to learn the Spanish language are some of the advantages of studying in our islands and have turned them into one of the favorite destinations for students of the Erasmus program and other international exchange program.

Shopping, Leisure and Culture
Shopping

In the Canary Islands one may find the full range of international fashion brands in the open shopping areas located at pedestrian streets in the old quarters, where shops alternate with pleasant terraces and coffee shops.
