Important advice:
In the case that the necessary documentation is received after May15 UnedAsiss does not guarantee the resolution of the recognition of subjects before the date of registration to the universities.

Included amongst the services offered by UNEDassis for the admission of international students to the Spanish University System, is the recognition of subjects completed in the educational systems of origin for assessment by the universities in their admissions procedures. Students from the European Union or countries with reciprocating agreements may request this accreditation service if they have completed studies equivalent to the Spanish Bachillerato and that are included in Annex I of the regulation.

Recognition may only be requested for the courses taken during the 2016/2017 course year. The validity of these recognitions for the purpose of assessment by universities extends to two academic course years as of the course year in which the subject was taken.

Prior to request for recognition, the student should be informed of whether or not the destination university will evaluate these recognized subjects or if they will demand the completion of the PCE. Students should also know if the recognized courses shall be evaluated on all occasions or only in the case in which an external assessment is conducted in the country of origin.

The subjects recognition service shall be carried out in cases in which the Spanish universities that the students wish to attend decide to assess the competencies acquired in specific courses completed, or those for which external assessment exams have been taken in their countries of origin that are equivalent to the second year courses of the Spanish Bachillerato that are the subject of the Bachillerato assessment for university admission, thereby avoiding double assessment of students who have already demonstrated their competencies in their education system of origin.

The UNED has conducted a prior study of course recognition for subjects that has been initially conducted on behalf of Departments, Embassies and other Organisms. The proposal was evaluated by the coordinators of the Specific Competency Exams of the UNED and they have obtained the approval of the procedure by the Deputy Vice-Rector of Admissions.

In the case in which this initial recognition is not found for some specific course, the student may request it through the webpage (application) by sending the following:

• The curriculum of the course completed in the country of origin, translated into Spanish or English.
• A certified copy of the academic transcript in which the completed course appears. .
• Indication of the webpage in which it is possible to consult the original of the curriculum of the subjects.

By clicking on the following link, it is possible to consult the subjects from educational systems which, until the present, have received negative reports from the coordinator as well as those that are pending report. Courses receiving favourable reports are available in the drop down of the UnedAsiss application for the request of accreditation
