Admission with foreign degrees

Students with degrees obtained in foreign education systems

Students with foreign degrees that have not been officially recognised can also be admitted onto the doctoral programmes. These candidates, apart from filling in the online application form  within the set application period, must submit the following documentation to the School of Doctoral Studies.

  1. Copy of their valid DNI, NIE or passport.
  2. A certified copy of the official master's degree and a certified copy of the academic certificate with the scale of reference values and accreditation of having passed the minimum of 60 credits on it.
  3. A certified copy of the bachelor’s degree certificate, or the engineering degree, architecture degree or diploma certificate, or an equivalent level certificate, and a certified copy of the academic certificate with the scale of reference values on it.
  4. Certified copy of the certificate from the organisation responsible, issued by the Ministry of Education of the country that issues the documents, showing that the qualification presented (bachelor's degree and master) entitles the holder to access doctoral studies in that country.

If documents 2 and 3 above are not written in any of the official languages of this country, they must be translated by one of the following:

However:

  • If the original documentation is issued by the university of origin in English, no translation is required.
  • The academic documentation will also be accepted if it is translated into English.

All this documentation (including translations) must be validated by the pertinent authorities. The legalisation procedures for the attached documentation vary depending on the country where the bachelor's degree or equivalent study was done:

  1. Member countries of the European Union  or signatories of the European economic area agreement . Documents issued in these countries do not need to be legalised
  2. Countries that have subscribed to the Hague Convention . The documents must include Hague Apostille, issued by the competent authorities of the country of origin.
  3. Countries that have subscribed to the Andrés Bello Convention . When the country is also a signatory of the Hague Convention, the simpler procedure established in this agreement can be followed. Otherwise, the documents must be legalised through diplomatic channels, to which end they must be submitted to the following organisations:
    • The Ministry of Education of the country of origin, for degrees and certificates of studies.
    • The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country where the documents were issued.
    • Any diplomatic or consular representative of Spain abroad.
  4. Other countries: The documents must be legalised through diplomatic channels, to which end they must be submitted to the following organisations:
    • The Ministry of Education of the country of origin, for degrees and certificates of studies, and the corresponding ministry for birth and nationality certificates.
    • The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country where the documents were issued.
    • Any diplomatic or consular representative of Spain abroad.

The documents issued by diplomatic or consular authorities of countries other than Spain must be legalised by the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation.

The School of Doctoral Studies will review this documentation and verify that the access requirements are met.
