Student Visa Issues

I am hoping someone has experience with this issue and can offer a solution.
Our daughter has applied, via CEA, to study abroad in Spain this year for two different terms.
First term is in Alicante from May 30 till July 26.
Second term is in Seville from Sept 1 till Dec 20.
The period from July 27 to August 30 is for travel within Europe.
We have been diligent and pro-active with all aspects of logistics, including already have set an appt with Spanish Consulate in Chicago to apply for Student Visa.
Yesterday, 45 days after accepting both program applications at the same time, a CEA advisor contacts our daughter and says it is not likely a Student Visa will be granted for the entire duration of the stay. The advisor believes that since there is a gap between the semesters the application is likely to be denied.
Has anyone faced a similar issue?

I don't think a travel forum is the right place to be looking for input on this issue.

Try looking for some student visa forums.

What did the advisor suggest? Can she apply for two separet student visas for the two different periods? Then on July 26 she could head to the UK or Ireland or another non- schengen country and re- enter the schengen zone on a regular tourist visa for the time in between?

I really don't have the answer but surely the advisor is there yo provide this kind of advice?
