That's interesting. Any specific suggestions on schools that allow you to get that visa? And can that be renewed indefinitely? And how much more of a hassle do you think it would be to constantly renew this as opposed to the residency to study which if I recall correctly lasts 1 year?I should add that this is the same advice I received from 2 different immigration lawyers. They advised me to look for a regular job, apply for citizenship, or simply hope that new categories are added soon.
If you want to go the student visa route, the 3 month renewable visa for studying Spanish is MUCH cheaper than the visa for studying a proper university degree, I believe.
Studying at UCES seems quite cheap though. Was debating taking classes in Philosophy. Will only end up paying the matriculation costs which are about $250USD for the year.
