DELE –DIPLOMA DE ESPAÑOL COMO LENGUA EXTRANJERA
UCAM University is DELE (Instituto Cervantes) Official examination centre.
Incoming students have the best opportunity to learn and attest their knowledge of Spanish language.
The DELE Diplomas are internationally recognized and enjoy great prestige not only among public and private educational institutions and authorities, but also in the business world and chambers of commerce. They constitute a guarantee in assessing and evaluating linguistic competence in the Spanish language.
In many countries, the DELE Diplomas have been adopted by educational authorities and accredited schools as a complement to their own evaluation systems. They are useful to facilitate promotion at work and access to
education, both in Spain and in the other countries where the tests are taken.
