Living and Studying in Barcelona

Barcelona is known for its warm Mediterranean climate and beaches, its cuisine, its architecture, and its vibrant metropolitan community. In the last few years, Barcelona has attracted international attention for its entrepreneurial ecosystem of investors, startups, acceleration programs, and talent.


Life in Barcelona

Spain has become a prime location for living and studying abroad due in part to the low cost of living. Attending a Codely bootcamp translates into money saved, both in the cost of tuition and the cost of living. Read more about the cost breakdown in our FAQ section.

The vibrant climate and cultural scene is another reason why young professionals are attracted to Barcelona. What’s a good way to acclimatize to the lifestyle here? Well, you could Lindy hop in the street. Or play beach volleyball. Or have a vermut in Gràcia. Or go for a hike in Montserrat. Or partake in one of the many Catalan festivals. You can read more about what Barcelona has to offer in our favorite cultural blog.
