DELE Spanish exams

If you are interested in obtaining an official diploma in Spanish language to recognise the language skills you have acquired during your time in Spain, you can take the Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera (DELE) exam here at Universidad San Jorge.

The Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera (DELE), or Diploma in Spanish as a a Foreign Language, accredits competence in Spanish language and is awarded by the Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport.

The DELE diploma covers all variants of the Spanish language and all are considered to be valid. There are six different certificates covering the six levels defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR): A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2 and during 2020 the DELE exam centre at Universidad San Jorge will examine three of these levels: A2, B2 and C1. The diplomas are official qualifications that are recognised by industry and institutions and do not expire.
