Study in Spain


With around thirty institutions ranked among the best universities in the world and a range of renowned programs in health (medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, veterinary medicine), tourism, sports and business, this European country within the Schengen area remains a destination of choice for Spanish-speaking foreign students.

The Spanish higher education system

As a member of the European Higher Education Area, Spain’s higher education system is based on the LMD system: Licence, Master – Doctorat (Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctorate), and its diplomas are recognized in over fifty countries across the world. 

Spain has 51 public universities, 32 private universities, including Catholic institutions, under autonomous management. They award three types of degrees, all recognized by the State:

– Grado ( Tunisian equivalent of Bac+3 or Bac+4)

– Postgrado (Tunisian equivalent of Bac+4 and 5)

– The Doctorado (Doctorate, in 3 or 4 years after the Postgrado)

Admission requirements

As autonomous institutions, each university has its own admission criteria, and may therefore require an entrance exam as well as certification in Spanish or even English, depending on the university (Find more information below).

A common admission requirement is that your secondary education diploma (Bac) must be validated before you can apply.

Academic calendar and enrollment periods

The academic year is divided into 2 semesters, both of which culminate in examinations: from mid-September to mid-December and from mid-January to mid-May.

Application deadlines vary from one institution to another. Private universities, however, are more flexible: if you want to start your studies in October, you can start sending in your application from May to September.

Visa procedure

– No interview

– Time taken to issue visa: up to 60 days from submission of application by applicant

– Upon arrival in Spain, an application procedure for a residence permit must be initiated within one month.


Fluency in Spanish remains a requirement. It must be proven. Depending on the institution, different levels are required.

For programs taught entirely or partly in English, TOEFL certification and an acceptable level of Spanish are required.
