Student life

ESBS European Sport Business School - Emagister - SportBusiness

We want your experience with ESBS to be one of a kind.

When you arrive in Valencia you'll be able to book a meeting with our student care service to solve your queries and get information about accommodation, transportation, bank accounts and many more.

We also offer a consultancy service for international students.

Many other services, counseling and information will be available to you.


Prepare your trip

Our service will be ready to answer any questions you may have, whether they are about accommodation or general information such as opening a bank account, getting health insurance, immigration arrangements, admission letters or visas.



Over 50% of our students come from abroad; they've bravely travelled to an oftentimes unknown country where they need to find proper accommodations.

ESBS has a collaboration agreement with Universal Students, a company specialized in student accommodations and authorized by the Valencian Tourism Agency, that guarantees the students they will be able to book any accommodation option before their arrival, always under supervision by ESBS's consultancy service.
