Studying in Spain

I am English and interested in the possibility of doing a 4 year degree (grados) in Spain. My partner grew up in Spain, and he is considering moving back there when he finishes his current degree in England. Initially, I wasn’t sure about moving abroad with him, but now I’m considering using it as an opportunity to get a degree, as well as being able to spend time living in Spain. I am 23 and never went to university, but currently have a very good job in Bids and Tenders for an Engineering company. I studied Spanish in school for GCSE and have a basic grasp of the language, but I am now currently in the process of trying to learn Spanish to fluency.

I’ve started researching Spanish Universities and admissions processes, but the information is very hard to find.

I have decent A level results (BBC) that are equivalent to possibly a 7 when converted, but will be over 25 when I hope to apply. There’s a lot of conflicting information about whether I will have to do the Spanish PAU exam. Some websites say that my grades will be enough on their own to get a place in a university without the PAU and foreigners won’t have to do the exam, but some other websites say that over 25s have to do a PAU exam regardless. Obviously, PAU exams are pretty much all in Spanish, so if that is the case I would likely need to be far beyond just a conversational level of Spanish by then. The degrees I’m interested in are taught in English, but I still plan to learn Spanish as best as I can, whether I have to do the PAU or not.

Has anyone else from the UK/ EU gone through the process of applying to study at Spanish Universities, and if so, can you offer any advice? Or if you are a native, can you advise what the process is like and what level of Spanish I would need to be able to do a PAU exam?

And then there’s the elephant in the room… Brexit… But I’m not sure if anyone knows at this point how that will affect the chance to study abroad!
