Diploma in Spanish as a Foreign Language (DELE)

The ULPGC has been recognised by the Cervantes Institute, on behalf of the Spanish Ministry for Education, Culture and Sport, as an official examining centre for DELE, Diploma in Spanish as a Foreign Language. DELE can be taken at different levels, in accordance with the guidelines of the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference. DELE qualifications have been adopted by educational authorities and formal education centres in many countries to complement their own assessment programmes. They are ideal for facilitating promotion at work and access to education both in Spain and in other countries where the exams are held.

Exams are held on pre-established dates, twice a year, in May and November. The University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria belongs to the network of centres recognise by the Cervantes Institute as DELE examining centres.
