University Access

More than one option

Our students can attend university in spain and abroad

Dual certification

Sixth Form includes the last two years of school education, and would equal “Bachillerato” stage in Spain. Our students take the A levels exams and graduate in Year 13. Once we receive their official grades, we start the homologation process for them to acquire the Spanish diploma. This double certification allows our students to request their admissions to Spanish universities in a similar way to those children who have studied in the Spanish system.

Study abroad

The A levels exams allow our students to request admission to any university in the UK. Also, this certificate is recognized in other countries such as New Zealand, Australia, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Canada or the United States among others.

Admissions requirements and procedures may be different in every country and/or university. Our teachers and staff will help each student assess their options and prepare for personal interviews. They will also write recommendation letters when required.


The A levels our students take are graded externally in the UK. Therefore, they can apply to universities the same way a British student would do it.

In case they wanted to study at a private Spanish university, our students do not need to take the EVAU (Spanish exam). Each private center has its own access requirements, like interviews or exams. If hey want to study at a public university in Spain, the procedure will vary depending on the center. Generally, they can enroll without taking the EVAU exam or take just the optional exams to improve their average grade and/or to access those degrees requiring a higher grade.
