I heard you can get a PhD in UK in 3 years. Can you do the same at Spain, France, Italy, etc?

Yes, average duration of a phD in Europe is 3 years in most disciplines (EU standards).

More theoretical fields like philosophy and social sciences accept more but you still need special administrative dispensation to pursue in 4th or 5th year.
