is based in PLAZA, Europe’s largest logistics park, with laboratories, classrooms, event space and direct access to logistics operations.

In addition to being a place of learning and research for students and faculty, PLAZA is also home to roughly 350 companies who use the park for their logistics operations due to its strategic location in Europe and Spain. Situated between three major highways, PLAZA is linked to the high-speed railway that connects Madrid and Barcelona, and is also close to an airport that serves the world’s largest cargo planes.

It’s not a coincidence that is home to over 2,000 students from 65 countries. Situated in northern Spain, Zaragoza is the perfect location for international students looking to enter education in Europe. As well as being Spain’s fifth largest city and the birthplace of painter Francisco de Goya, it’s also within a 300 kilometer radius of Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia and San Sebastián. It’s also home to some fine architecture and one of the best tapas and bar scenes in Europe.

Another huge draw to tempt you here is the fact life in the Spanish city is significantly cheaper than other European cities. A monthly public transport pass in Zaragoza would cost you €40 (US$50), compared with €81 in Berlin (US$99) and €149.73 in London (US$184), while renting a one-bedroom apartment in the city centre costs around €408 per month (US$503), compared with £1,649.16 in London (US$2,300) and €770.69 in Berlin (US$950), according to data from Numbeo.
