First of all make sure you got your documents in order: Passport, visa, ID, insurance, etc (make sure you have copies of them in a save place, just in case).
Next thing to do is check if you will be able to have access to your bankaccount from ATM's here in Spain (is no problem at all for EU bankaccounts).
Take time to prepare things at home, do not start at the last minute; at least one year ahead of planning!
Make sure you have a list with important numbers: whom to contact in case anything happens to you, your Insurance, Home University, Doctor back home, Family & Friends, etc. Make sure you have a backup of this list, in case you loose it!
Lastly, try to find out as much information as possible on the Spanish culture, language (summer language course available at UNAV), etc.
