Document Recognition and Homologation

Document Recognition and Homologation

It’s important that you begin the process of achieving recognition or homologation for your degree before you leave Spain. Remember that the Spanish authorities have to validate the degree, and any step you take to do this from your home country will mean more work and expense.
As the nature of the processes of recognition and homologation depend upon the type of degree obtained - undergraduate, special degrees, Master’s or official doctorates - and upon the current agreements between Spain and your home country, we recommend that you consult with the Secretariat of your School or Faculty, and that you review the information provided by the Ministry of Education (Ministerio de Educación) regarding the recognition of original academic documents effective abroad (legalización de documentos académicos originales que han de surtir efecto en el extranjero) and the recognition of special degrees ( legalización de títulos propios ) as well as consulting the Graduate Studies Center (Centro de Estudios de Posgrado) .
