  • By UNESCO; the office of the Iberoamerican Cooperation Institute or any other organisation recognised by Spain.

The submission of the documentation by e-mail, accompanied by the ADMISSION application shall be a requirement for its processing, but under no circumstances does this exempt the applicant from the requirement to make a hard copy submission.

It is therefore a compulsory requirement to present all the original documents at ESERP before the end of the month following the beginning of the academic year of the course, where a relevant copy of them shall be made and where they shall be verified.

Failure to submit the documentation within the aforementioned time period shall represent a waiver of the right to the qualification issued by the partner university.
