ISDE environment

At ISDE, students have all our support to solve academic, accommodation, practice of sports or bureaucratic related needs, with the implementation of an individualized treatment of requests in order to tend to their particular needs.

Accommodation

We have collaboration agreements with specialized partners that offer accommodation services. If a student requests it, we can advise on several options: shared and single apartments, residence in Spanish families for those foreign students who want to have a better understanding of the local culture etc.

If you need assistance with any of these alternatives, we will be glad to provide it.

Social events and activities

At ISDE, you have the leading role. We inaugurate the course with an opening ceremony and during the term, we organize breakfasts, social activities and celebrate Christmas. Finally, the course concludes with the graduation ceremony attended by prominent professionals from the legal sector, elected officials, teachers, tutors and last but not least the students’ families.

ISDE Forum

ISDE FORUM is an intellectual reflective event, with an eminently practical focus, covering matters that affect, directly or indirectly, the interests of companies, public administrations, political parties, institutions and other interest groups.

Health services

Spain has a health system that is of a public nature, therefore treatment is universal. If you are a citizen of the European Union, you can obtain the European Health Insurance Card. If you prefer to do so, you can also opt for private health insurance.

Database access

As an ISDE student, you will have access to the “Casos Reales” database of Difusión Jurídica, among others. These platforms will help you to attain a high level of knowledge in procedural, corporate and international case law.

Procedures and student visa

If you are a student from a non-EU country or a signatory of the European Economic Zone Agreement, you will have to request a student visa in your local Spanish Consulate. We will assist in said procedures.

CAAI / ALUMNI

ISDE´s Alumni Circle (CAAI) allows to maintain the relationship between Alumni of different programs and editions. It has proved as a very useful tool from both at a personal and professional level.

Created by the students themselves, with the support of ISDE, the CAAI organizes activities, seminars and meetings that encourage contact between former classmates who share experiences, opportunities, exchange knowledge and support in their professional careers.

Job offers

To promote labor insertion of students and Alumni into the professional sector, we offer a free job offer service, in which many leading law firms and companies collaborate.

Over the years, this service has enabled students to integrate quickly into law firms and companies via the selection of highly trained professionals.
