They both enable admission to the Master’s Degree in the issuing countries.
  • Furthermore, graduates under foreign educational systems who are not attached to the European Higher Education Area may have access without being required to obtain recognition for their titles, after verification by the University that they accredit a level of education equivalent to the corresponding official Spanish university degrees and that they enable admission to postgraduate studies in the issuing country.
