International Students

 

Before coming to Spain

Before coming to Spain, you must first plan how you will manage the legal documents needed for your stay (student visa and diploma legalisation), in addition to finding accommodation and confirming the available health coverage.

Student visa


Any person wishing to study in Spain must apply for a student visa, except for citizens and residents of member countries of the European Union.

Students admitted to an ESERP programme may need proof of admission to manage their visa or other administrative matters. Request this certificate from the Academic Secretary or International Office.

NON EU/EEA/SWITZERLAND NATIONALITIES

These students need a student visa. After registration, ESERP will provide you with an official letter of admission required to apply for the visa at the Spanish Embassy in your country of origin.

Consult information provided by the Spanish Government

NATIONALITIES FROM THE EU/EEA/SWITZERLAND

These students do not need a visa.

Consult information provided by the Spanish Government

Legalise and translate your diploma


After you have enrolled in the programme, or prior to enrolling, it is mandatory to legalise your diploma through the Hague Convention or your country’s equivalent, and send it to your corresponding ESERP centre before beginning your studies.

If your diploma is not in Spanish, remember it must be translated by a certified official translator.

If you are a citizen of a country that has signed the Hague Convention, you must Apostille your diploma.

If you are a citizen of a country that is not a member of the Hague Convention, you must legalise your diploma through diplomatic or consular channels. This is the procedure that applies to legalise foreign public documents issued by States that have not signed the agreement.

Generally, each of the authorities involved must individually legalise the document.

If the studies have taken place within an EU education system or in other States with which international agreements have been signed, you must apply for the Access Credential that is managed by the UNED.

More information

Students coming from educational systems outside of the EU, from a State with which no agreements have been signed.

More information

Unless there is a legal instrument that would serve as an exemption from this obligation, any foreign public document must be legalised to be valid in Spain and any Spanish public document must be legalised to be valid abroad.

Health insurance


All students must have public or private health insurance arranged with an insurer authorised to operate in Spain.

  • Students from the EU/EEA/Switzerland
    They must apply for the European Health Card in their country, and inform themselves about its coverage.
  • Students not from the EU/EEA/Switzerland
    Look into health care agreements between the country of origin and Spain. Purchase private health insurance or travel insurance if necessary.
