5. My previous qualification is from a foreign university. What requirements and documentation must I provide?

 

As well as taking into account the access requirements (question 1) and the documentation to be supplied (question 4), when the qualification is issued by a foreign university you will have to bear in mind the following:


     1) If it is a university belonging to the EHEA and the qualification is not written in Spanish, Euskera, English, French, Italian or Portuguese, you must submit a sworn translation of the said qualification into Spanish or Euskera.


     2) If it is a university outside the EHEA:

  • The qualification must be legalized by diplomatic channels, which means:

          - in countries which have signed the Hague Convention you should obtain the Apostille for the document to be submitted.

          - in countries which have not signed the Hague Convention you should obtain a visa from the Ministries of Education and Foreign Affairs in the country of origin and the Spanish Embassy/Consulate in that country.

  • As in the previous case, if the qualification is not written in Spanish, Euskera, English, French, Italian or Portuguese, you must submit a sworn translation of the said qualification into Spanish or Euskera.
  • You must also provide a certificate from the university of origin, indicating that the qualification awarded enables you to pursue doctoral studies.
