What to do after arriving in Barcelona
Ideally, you should arrange to arrive in Barcelona on the Sunday before your course starts. We will send you the full address of your accommodation, before you arrive.
If you need to arrive a day earlier, this may be possible, but let us know, so that we can arrange an extra night’s accommodation for you.
On arriving in Barcelona, you should go directly to your accommodation.
It is very important that you inform us of your expected time of arrival, so that we can make sure that someone is at your accommodation, to let you in, when you arrive.
You should then arrive at our school at 08.30 on the first morning of your course
||I really appreciated the school and all the people working there (teachers, staff, management). The location of the school and the residence are ideal, and the public transports very easy. Teachers are very attentive.
