Would going to Spain to study physics be a good idea?

    I've been considering a degree at the UAM due to the fact its incredibly cheaper than in the US. Any thoughts if this is a good idea?

    Autonomous University of Madrid? Cheaper than the US? What do you mean? There is a Autonomous University of Madrid in the US?

    The tuition of the Universidad Autonoma De Madrid in Madrid, Spain is less costly than that of here in the United States and it offers and undergraduate in physics which I'm interested in pursuing.

    The Universidad Autonoma De Madrid in Madrid is cheaper than all 1,845 colleges and universities in the US? If it's affordable and you like the University, what is there to discuss? :smile:

    Wow that sounds awesome. Have you been able to tour or contact an advisor over there?

    I'm planning to tour over the summer, but I have to get some papers first in order to get to Spain :P

    Are you fluent in Spanish? Really fluent - enough to handle complex ideas like you will get in a physics class?
