Nordic students taking an Architecture degree in Spain

Why would a Scandinavian student come to Spain for a degree in Architecture? We asked two Swedish first year students of Architecture, Filip and Sam, just that and they were more than happy to tell us about their decision.

Filip is a Scandinavian student coming to Spain for studies in Architecture: it was the difficulty of getting into a programme in Sweden that eventually led him to choose to study his degree abroad.


Sam tells us that his passion for creating led him to pursue a degree in Architecture. In his previous profession as a chef his creations would last for twenty minutes, but as an architect his creations will stand for years. At the Technical School he has participated in the CreaFest Winter creativity festival by leading the successful Gastro World event, a celebration of the Technical School’s international community.

Further experiences related to our Scandinavian students can be read from these other resources:

  • Swedish student of Architecture Walat cites creative freedom as a reason to study architecture in Spain.
  • Architect Juan Luis Valderrabano Montañés thinks that the Spanish education in the field of architecture will benefit Scandinavian students professionally
