Spanish Student FAQ
- Do UK universities recognise Spanish qualifications?
Entry requirements are dependent on which university you are applying to. At undergraduate level, Spanish students will generally need to have completed the Titulo de Bachillerato with a grade of 7 (BCC A-Level equivalent) or above. At postgraduate level, you will generally require an undergraduate degree with a grade of 6-7 (2:2 to 2:1 UK equivalent) from a recognised institute of higher education.
- Do Spanish students need a visa to study in the UK?
From 2021, Spanish students travelling to the UK to study an undergraduate or postgraduate degree will require a study visa.
- What are tuition fees for Spanish students?
Spanish students will no longer pay local fees at UK universities unless they have settled or pre-settled status. Ensure you check with the UK university you are applying to though (or an SI-UK consultant), as many are offering reduced fees to EU students or maintaining fees for European students in line with those paid by UK students.
