Spain Student Visa - Schengen re-entry + later arrival

Jump to last reply

Would be super grateful if someone could help me with these questions:

1) I have a Spanish student visa for the period of June 28-December 21. I will arrive in the Schengen area on May 12. If I plan to arrive in Spain in the last week of August, do I need to exit the Schengen area (to the UK for example) and then re-enter in order for my student visa to be valid? If yes, can I transit through France on my way to Spain once I've re-entered Schengen? Do I need a separate visa to transit through France (by train)?

2) Will there be issues for me bureaucratically if I arrive in Spain in late August instead of in late June (which is when my visa was granted for and when my study program was originally meant to start)?

3) I will have a multi-entry student visa to Spain. I will be in Spain after having spent 90 days in the EU (as an Australian citizen). Can I go to other EU countries while on my student visa? Will I need a new, separate Schengen visa?

Immense thanks to whoever can give me some info on these!
