Notwithstanding all of the above, the universities may admit students holding degrees obtained according to foreign education systems without need for further approval upon verification that their level is equivalent to that of the corresponding Spanish Undergraduate degrees and that they grant access to master's level studies in the foreign country where they were issued. In this case, students are to submit a request for equivalence.
