This is a fantastic site for all the info necessary for students and people wanting to go and live in Santander. Really informative and useful. Generally people spend hours and hours getting together all this info for just one location and here it is all grouped together with the date on it to show that it is recent. GReat. Just sent this info to my son who is 20 and is interested in doing an erasmus or other business school program in the Cantabria region. Quality of life looks wonderful..lovely blue seas & tapas sounds delicious!
