    If you need to validate your degree obtained abroad in Spain, you must carry out the corresponding validation. We’ll tell you how to do it!

    We know that your professional future is in Spain and therefore, we want to help you to be able to practice a profession in the country with your studies. Validating your foreign degree to a Spanish degree allows you to access a regulated profession in Spain.

    The procedures to be carried out fall under the responsibility of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport you and carry it out online and in-person by presenting the completed form at any authorised public registry.

    The documents to be presented must be duly written in Spanish, therefore if you have them in another language it is ideal to hire a translation agency so that a sworn translator authorised in Spain carries out and validates the translation.

    Once submitted, you will be able to check the status of the process at any time until it is resolved. Once it is resolved, you will be able to collect your certification issue by the Sub-directorate General of Titles of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport.
