- those graduated in a EHEA institution, if their degree gives access to Master studies in the country in which they were awarded.
- those graduated in a non-EHEA institution, if their degree gives access to postgraduate studies in the country in which they were awarded and they have prior proof that these qualifications are evidence of an academic level equivalent to a Spanish degree.
