In accordance with the Bologna process, admission to most Spanish Masters programmes will require you to hold a Bachelors degree in a relevant field. Further criteria will be set by individual universities and will vary between institutions and courses. You may be expected to provide the following documents:
- An academic transcript of your previous studies
- A CV indicating any professional and / or research experience relevant to your course
- References (it may be advisable to include an undergraduate tutor amongst your referees)
- Documents proving English and / or Spanish proficiency as required by your course
- A personal statement outlining your interest in the course and subject area as well as its suitability to your aims and career goals
Recognition and accreditation of foreign qualifications
If your undergraduate qualification was achieved within the EHEA, it will usually be recognised automatically. In other cases, your university should be able to review and confirm your qualifications.
Further official accreditation of foreign qualifications is not typically required for Masters programmes, but will be a fairly simple process if it’s necessary. Accreditation takes place through an official body within the Spanish Ministry of Education and applications are usually commenced at Spanish Embassies or Consulates. You will usually need to provide the following documents:
- Copies of documents proving your identity and nationality
- A certified copy of the qualification you wish to have recognised and accredited in Spain
- A document detailing the programme of studies carried out to receive this qualification, including information on course duration, course content and hours of study
- Payment of a corresponding application fee (around €90-150)
Criteria for the submission of official documents
Spain operates fairly strict guidelines with respect to the documents submitted for official purposes (such as a university application or for the accreditation of existing qualifications). In particular, you should be aware that documents issued abroad will usually need to be accompanied by a 'sworn translation' into Spanish. This can be conducted by certain diplomatic and consular representatives (at Spanish embassies abroad, or foreign embassies within Spain). Independent sworn translators also provide this service within Spain.
