Requirements for applicants with degrees from a foreign University Institution

In the event that the studies used to pre-enrol in the Master’s Degree have been completed at an EHEA institution, both the degree and the academic transcript (grades) must be official and issued by the competent authorities, in accordance with the legal system of the country of origin.

– The following requirements must also be met:

  • Legalisation. Only for degrees from university institutions in countries that are not members of the EU and that belong to the EHEA.
  • Legalised translation of documents that have not been issued in Spanish, Catalan, English, French, Italian or Portuguese.

Legalisation process for academic documents issued abroad (non-EU member countries)

Information concerning the legalisation process must be provided by the university where the studies have been completed, by the competent authorities or by the consular services in the country of origin where the documents come from.

The steps to follow to legalise these documents and, therefore, in order for them to be valid in Spain will vary according to the country of origin where the studies or degrees were obtained, depending on whether there is any applicable international agreement.

  • Countries that have signed the Hague Convention of 05/10/1961:

Apostille: The competent authorities in the country must verify the signatures of the academic directors and must issue the relevant Apostille.

The Apostille must be placed on the original document.

The different legalisation procedures are the following:

A) Countries that have signed the Hague Convention of 05/10/1961:

Apostille: The competent authorities in the country must verify the signatures of the academic directors and must issue the relevant Apostille.

The Apostille must be placed on the original document.

Hague Convention Countries

B) Countries that have signed the Andrés Bello Agreement(Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Spain, Panama, Paraguay, Peru and Venezuela) and other countries.

These documents must be legalised through diplomatic channels and therefore must be submitted to:

  • The Ministry of Education in the country of origin, to recognise the signatures that appear on the original document.
  • The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the country of origin, to legalise the recognition of signatures carried out by the Ministry of Education.
  • The Spanish Consulate in the country of origin, to recognise the above-mentioned legalisation.

A minimum of 4 years of work experience must be demonstrated.

This can be done with:

  1. Employment History Record.
  2. Or, with a letter with the letterhead signed and stamped by the company, which verifies the amount of time the individual has worked for the company and the position held. More than one letter may be submitted from various companies, provided that the total amounts to 4 years.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION


Any documents that have not been issued in Spanish, Catalan, English, French, Italian or Portuguese must be submitted accompanied by their corresponding official translation into Spanish or English on which the translator’s stamp must appear.

In the case of documents that must be legalised, the official translation must be done once the legalisation process has been completed and, therefore, the official translation should include these legalisation documents. In any case, submitting the official translation does not exempt the applicant from having to submit the original document.

The translation into Spanish may be done by:

  • A certified translator, who is duly authorised and registered in Spain.
  • The Language Interpretation Office of the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation.
  • UNESCO, the office of the Ibero-American Cooperation Institution or any other organisation recognised by Spain.
  • Any Spanish diplomatic or consular representative abroad.
  • The diplomatic representative in Spain of the applicant’s home country or, where appropriate, of the country issuing the document.

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

It is therefore mandatory to submit a hard copy of the original documents to ESERP before the end of the month following the start of the programme’s academic year, at which time they will be verified and a photocopy will be made.

Failure to submit the documentation within the aforementioned period means the applicant waives the right to obtain the degree issued by the partner university.
