Every case is unique, but if you want to know the best immigration option based on your profile (work experience, education, language proficiency, family situation, etc.), we recommend getting a personalized immigration assessment. It's cost-effective and tailored to your needs, providing insights into the ideal visa programs you can qualify for.
Start by asking yourself what you want to study: languages, a master's degree, a bachelor's degree, etc. Many people use studying as a bridge to migrate, considering the benefits it offers. If you're studying at a recognized university or educational institution, you may obtain a work permit for yourself and even your partner, depending on the visa type obtained.
If you're studying a language like Spanish, WORK PERMITS are not granted.
An "official master's degree" is a regulated program approved by the State, meeting the requirements of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). On the other hand, a "Máster Propio" is a postgraduate program designed by the institution itself, focusing on specialized training in a specific field.

They will provide detailed information on the acceptable documents and procedures.
