In accordance with current legislation, all universities must submit their official degrees to a process of verification, monitoring and accreditation.
In the case of the UNED, the Consejo de Universidades receives the degree report and sends it to the ANECA for evaluation and issuance of the verification report. If the report is favorable, the Consejo de Universidades issues the verification resolution, and the Ministerio de Educación submits the proposal for the official nature of the degree to the Government, orders its inclusion in the Registro de Universidades, Centros y Títulos (RUCT) and its subsequent publication in the Boletín Oficial del Estado (BOE).
Official master's degrees must renew their accreditation within four years of their verification or from the date of their last accreditation, in order to check whether the results obtained are adequate to guarantee the continuity of their teaching. If they are adequate, the Consejo de Universidades issues a Resolution of the accreditation of the degree.
