Why did you choose to go to Logroño, Spain?

Why Logroño mmm ok, let´s start. Because is a not too big city but not too small, 152. 000 people! You can go everywhere on foot! just rent or buy a bike is faster! People are friendly and kind, and our Spanish language is better than other communities in Spain!

You can do everything in this comfortable city: relax, party, sports,...

How long is the scholarship? How much money do you receive to help you with living costs?

I don't know anything about this, because Logroño is my hometown! I did Erasmus in the Cezch Republic

What is the student lifestyle like in Logroño?

Well, I was a student from the University of La Rioja, and nightlife on Thursday was one of the best! Rent a flat/room is really easy and I think cheaper than other cities in Spain. We have many Erasmus people and exchange people in our city and University.
