Admission with foreign qualifications from within the European Higher Education Area
To be admitted to an official master's, students must have an official Spanish university qualification or a qualification issued by an institution of higher education from within the European Higher Education Area which would permit admission to a master's in that country.
If the studies were completed at an institution of higher education in another member State of the European Higher Education Area, both the certificate of the qualification and the academic certificate of marks must be official and issued by the competent authorities in accordance with the legal system of the country of origin.
No type of authentication is required for the documents - they just need to be endorsed.
Documents issued abroad in a language other than Spanish must be presented along with an official translation into Spanish.
