Spain to Accelerate & Simplify Procedures for Recognition of Foreign University Degrees

The Spanish authorities have announced that the country’s Council of Ministers has approved the acceleration and modernisation of procedures for the recognition of foreign university degrees.

The decree corresponding to the Immigration Law will officially enter into force on November 7, and the move means that foreigners from other countries will be subject to facilitated procedures when it comes to the recognition of their university degrees, reports.

In line with the new rules that are to become effective two weeks from now, foreigners who hold a university degree issued in their country of origin will be able to prove through a more streamlined procedure that their level of training is the same as the one required in Spain.
