I'm looking into doing a Masters in Spain, but I'm not sure if I would be entitled to financial support and if I need to get my undergraduate degree recognised in any way or equated to the Spanish higher education system?

As long as you got your degree from a decent European university you should be fine, Spanish unis will have to accept it. About financial support, your best bet is to find grants or scholarships from the private sector. Unless you're Spanish, you'll have trouble finding government funding for your studies. But bear in mind that education in Spain is overall much cheaper than in the UK (around €2,500 a year, at the very most), and the cost of living is also slightly lower, thank god

However, are you sure that you want to do a masters in Spain? Right now the Spanish university system is in the middle of a revolution (trying to adapt to the Bologna process), and overall lagging behind other European systems. Unless you want to study something for which Spanish unis are internationally famous (tourism, literature, economics) I would not recommend studying there. This is just a piece of advice from a Spaniard who did NOT study in Spain

Thanks for the reply. I'm British and wanting to go into TEFL in Spain. I think going a Masters in Spain would be more beneficial and possibly more widely recognised, or is this wrong? Fees in British universities are so high, but that isn't my main reason for wanting to go over to Spain. I love the country and the language and would really enjoy going into TEFL. I wouldn't be starting any courses for at least a year, since I have a teaching job lined up.

I don't know much about TEFL in Spain. All I know is that it's pretty easy to find a teaching job in Spain if you speak English, due to the shockingly low number of English-speaking teachers here.

About the Masters, I'd recommend you to stick to the main cities - Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, maybe Seville and Saragossa - as they have the better universities. If you need any advice about adapting to life in Spain, etc, don't hesitate to ask

H, I would like to apply to complutense university in madrid or another spainish university to study psychology in english, but i am really struggling with finding the information about it (applying etc) in english as most of the information is in spanish. The course itself is taught in english. I would be really thankful if someone could give me some guidance about this or if anyone who has studied psychology in english in spain can help, Thanks
