In this guide you will find all the information you need to prepare your stay in Barcelona.
A DICTIONARY, OVERCOMING THE LANGUAGE BARRIER THE OLD FASHIONED WAY
Travelling to a foreign country is agreat experience, but when you don't speak thelanguage of the country in question you are always a little afraid of not being able to make yourself understood. It's only natural, it's part of the fears we all have when moving abroad.
Fortunately, there is a very useful book in this kind of situation: a dictionary!
Yes, yes, it still exists.
You don't have to take the two kilo dictionary that contains who knows how many specific words that you will never use in French or any other language... But think about taking a small pocket dictionary. These miniature dictionaries offer translations and everyday vocabulary. Amply needed to learn or improve a language.
In addition, it will only cost you 2 or 3 €.
GOOGLE TRANSLATION, YOUR BEST FRIEND
A dictionary is handy. But this is 2018... There are easy ways to translate a sentence without having to translate each word one by one with a dictionary.
Yes, you know the famous Google Translate. You may have already used it in language classes during your high school years. Did you think your story ended after you dropped out of high school? Well, no! He has helped you so much and can still do so; keep him close to you.
That said, be careful not to appear anti-social by Googling every word.
A MAP OF THE CITY, EVEN IF YOU CAN'T REALLY READ A MAP
OK, we know you have Google Map. But are you sure you want to depend on your phone battery? Risky, isn't it? Yes, you can get lost when your battery runs out. So even if you've never read a map, remember to take one with you.
Of course, you will always have other ways to find your way back.
You will be able to rely on your incredible sense of direction, for example. And if you don't have one, you can use your beautiful dictionary to ask passers-by for directions.
In any case, you will find your way.
A PORTABLE BATTERY, FOR SMALL BREAKDOWNS
In case you really don't want to resign yourself to using a map or your dictionary, you will need aportable battery.
This means no more battery breakdowns.
A PUBLIC TRANSPORT APPLICATION
The good thing about technology is that there are more and more mobile applications available. So we think it's imperative to download a transport application. Finding a route is quick and easy.
And then, we understood that you didn't want to read a plan. Neither the city nor transport.
PHOTOCOPIES OF IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS, THE MUST-HAVE FOR SURVIVAL
Some countries are very touristy, which increasesthe rate of theft. Moreover, when you have just arrived in a new country, a new city, you are not always very vigilant (except during the five minutes following the announcement of the lady of the station whose voice you know so well; "Pickpockets can be present in this station...")
That's why it's important to rememberto photocopy andscan your important documents. Passport, Identity card, Permit, Visa. Make sure you always have access to the scans by emailing them to yourself.
You can never be too sure.
In France, almost everything is paid for by credit card, but this is not the case in all countries of the world.
This is why you should always havesome cash on you. So that I can take a taxi if I need one, or a metro ticket. It has already happened to some people that they were unable to pay by card abroad, either because their credit card does not allow them to pay in certain countries or for other reasons that we do not know... (well, we do not know everything)
Please note that we are not telling you to take a huge amount of money on the plane. By the way, before you take too much cash with you, find out the maximum amount of cash you can take with you on an airport website.

Stud&Globe gives you tips and information to help you find accommodation in Barcelona. There are a few things to consider before booking your shared flat as Barcelonaoffers many options for people with a thirst for exchange and adventure!
The first thing to do is to decide what type of accommodation you prefer: a residence, a flat, a room in a shared flat, accommodation with a family or a youth hostel.
If you want to live with other students from all over the world while enjoying a high degree of independence. The sites listed below are for you and specialise in short-term accommodation, but also offer long-term flats and monthly stays.
BENEFITS OF SHARING
Sharing yourflat provides you with several benefits such as learning a foreign language and immersing yourself in the local culture. Moreover, a student arriving in Barcelona for the first time does not necessarily know many people. Therefore, sharing a flat will help you to meet more people and to grow in the city. Finally, opting for a shared flat will cost you two to three times less than renting a flat from an agency.
ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES FOR RENTING YOUR HOME IN BARCELONA
Most flats in Barcelona are rented through estate agents, so you will have to pay a fee of about one month's rent. We therefore advise you, if possible, to be in direct contact with an owner, in order to save agency fees.
Stud&Globe advises you to sign a rental contract. It should be noted that the rental agreement for a room in a shared flat is usually a fairly informal agreement with the owner. When signing this document, it is important to understand the terms and conditions, so if you do not speak Spanish, get help from a friend who does. You will also need your identity card when you sign.
Whether you go through an agencyin Barcelona or directly through a landlord, you will have to pay a deposit which is never more than two months' rent.
The monthly rent is always paid at the beginning of the month.
In the case of shared flats, the rooms are often furnished, but the furniture is usually poor. Stud&Globe advises you to visit one of the three IKEA shops in Barcelona to give more life to your room.
ACCOMMODATION IN BARCELONA
Stud&Globe advises you to come one week before the beginning of your internship in order to visit different flats and make your choice in all tranquillity and avoid the numerous online scams.
Below you will find several sites that offer students accommodation options in Barcelona:
Long-term rental site. Many real estate agents and owners advertise their flats on this site. There are property listings all over Spain and many in Barcelona. It is also possible to do a more advanced search by neighbourhood. Each property listing usually includes several photos and sometimes even a video and most people speak English.
Site that lists long-term accommodation. However, the site is only available in Spanish. You will therefore need to be able to speak at least some of the language to communicate with landlords and estate agents.

When choosing accommodation for your internship in Barcelona, it is important to choose a neighbourhood that will meet your expectations. In this article, Stud&Globe takes you on a tour of the main districts of the Catalan capital to help you make your choice.
Barcelona is divided administratively into districts, which in turn are divided into neighbourhoods. Prices for a shared room vary between €300 and €500 per month depending on the popularity of the area and its connection to transport networks.
EL BORN, LE GOTICO AND LE RAVAL: THE OLD TOWN
The historic centre of Barcelona is for you! Typical for its traditional architecture made of old stones and small lively streets, for its famous Ramblas and pedestrian streets, it is located in the city centre. This cosmopolitan and effervescent district is popular with students and is one of the most festive and touristy areas of the city.
LA BARCELONETA: THE OLD SEAFARERS' AND FISHERMEN'S QUARTER
Located between the Old Port and the Olympic Port, the Barceloneta district runs along the seafront while remaining close to the city centre. Famous for its "chiringuitos" (beach bars), it is full of restaurants specialising in tapas, paellas and seafood. It is one of the most popular areas for tourists during the summer months!
GRACIA: A VILLAGE IN THE CITY
It is the bohemian district of Barcelona, one of the most coveted by the locals because of its craft shops, bars and terraces, cultural events and the charm of its streets and architecture. Located on the outskirts of the centre, with little tourism, it has a typical Catalan atmosphere. Its popularity makes it one of the most expensive areas in the city.
EIXAMPLE: RESIDENTIAL AND MODERN AREA
This area of modernist architecture, which is not touristy and is within easy walking distance of the city centre, is a good choice to avoid the noise and tourists of the old town. Elle regorge d'opportunités de logement et reste l'une des zones les plus avantageuses.
POBLE NOU: A FAMILY-FRIENDLY NEIGHBOURHOOD
A new and fashionable district, close to the beach, this area is in the process of being converted: a former industrial zone, it is constantly being reinvested and reinvented and is becoming the city's chic trend. A little further from the city centre but with good public transport links and close to the beach, you will find cheap accommodation.

November to December: 10am-6pm Barcelona is one of the top 10 favourite cities for students. First of all, it is a lively city by the sea and a city rich in culture and architecture. Barcelona's monuments are an excellent way to understand the city's history. So it's your priority to visit the monuments of Barcelona! It will allow you to discover the different districts and to expand your culture.
THE MOST VISITED MONUMENT IN BARCELONA: THE SAGRADA FAMILIA
It is THE most visited monument in Barcelona. It is without doubt one of the most beautiful religious buildings in the world. As impressive on the outside as it is on the inside, the Sagrada Familia has been under construction since the late 19th century. It was the architect Gaudi who left his mark on this religious monument, which today is a mixture of architecture. From gothic to modernism to art nouveau, this basilica is sure to take your breath away! A piece of advice, take your ticket in advance on the internet to avoid the queue and save 3 euros. There are other churches and cathedrals worth visiting in Barcelona. The Holy Cross Cathedral and the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar.
HOSPITAL SANT PAU IN BARCELONA
Not far from the Sagrada Familia, the Sant Pau hospital is a magnificent monument worth visiting. This huge hospital complex was built in the early 20th century. Indeed, its aim is to respond to population growth and the need for medical infrastructure. However, you will need to allow half a day to visit this UNESCO World Heritage Site. The complex covers an area equivalent to 9 Sagrada Familia. You will be immersed in a wonderful atmosphere of art-nouveau architecture and a setting that will take you back to the 1940s.
FROM THE TRIUMPHAL ARCH TO THE CIUTADELLA PARK
What could be better than relaxing while visiting? The triumphal arch of Barcelona. Although the Eiffel Tower was almost placed here, this triumphal arch was finally chosen. It is a beautiful monument with several thematic frescoes. Going down the avenue you will finally arrive at the Ciutadella park, which is very popular with the locals. There are many varieties of plants, the Barcelona Zoo and a huge fountain. There is also a small pond where you can go boating. Incredible spots, enough to feed your instagram.
A MONUMENT TO SPANISH FOOD IN BARCELONA: THE BOQUERIA MARKET
Feeling peckish? You can have a snack at the Boqueria market or drink a fresh fruit juice from the dozens of flavours on offer! The Boqueria market is a monument. Indeed, it is the largest market in the city and also the oldest, used since the 13th century. If you're looking to pick up some local food or bring back a souvenir, there's no better place! Moreover, the Boqueria market is a feast for the eyes as the stalls are so numerous, colourful and diverse!
MONUMENTS IN BARCELONA AT ALTITUDE: MONTJUÏC CASTLE AND THE SACRED HEART CHURCH
MONJUÏC AND ITS CASTLE
Two beautiful monuments in Barcelona are on high ground and that's lucky! First of all, the Monjuïc castle, which is located at the top of the Montjuïc hill overlooking Barcelona. Then, an altitude of almost 2000 m. It's a great way to get an overview of the whole city. You can enjoy the beautiful and large park as well as the castle and its walls. Montjuïc Castle also houses a military museum which is intended to become a museum dedicated to peace by purchasing tickets on site.
THE TIBIDABO AND THE SACRED HEART
To go a little further and higher, there is also the church of the Sacred Heart which is located at the top of Mount Tibidabo which rises to an altitude of about 500m. This magnificent church stands proudly at the top of the mountain and is illuminated by the sun throughout the day. In addition to finding this beautiful church, you can also enjoy the small amusement park at the top of the mountain. You can surely get the best view of Barcelona by climbing on the Ferris wheel, an unusual idea to discover Barcelona!
GAUDI'S MONUMENTS IN BARCELONA
Finally, we return to the architect Gaudi, who left his mark on the city as a whole and on many monuments in Barcelona. Gaudi's works are a journey through the city of Barcelona in themselves, and for good reason, almost all of them are considered monuments. Gaudi is indeed one of the most prodigious architects of his time and you can see his mark everywhere in Barcelona: Parc Güell, Sagrada Familia, Casa Mila, Casa Batlo... and even the lampposts next to the triumphal arch!
As you can see, there's plenty to do in Barcelona! Don't rush to visit everything either, each of these monuments in Barcelona deserves your attention. You can also relax for a day in Monjuïc or in the Ciutadella Park while visiting.
