No, the paperwork needed to get a work visa cannot be provided from our program. As those admitted to the Teach & Learn in Spain program are students, they will have a student visa. All placements in schools, though they come with a stipend, are considered paid internships.

All foreign-earned degrees must be evaluated by a third-party system to be recognized in the USA. We know that some of our alumni have told us that they have had no problem with getting this process done! You can see some blog posts from our alumni about having gone through that process here, here, and here.

All Option A student stipends are subject to being taxed, due to the type of internship that they have. Having a tax residency certificate allows students to not be subject to double taxation. Option B and C students are strongly encouraged to have a tax residency certificate as well, in case they need it for any reason during their time in Spain.

Spanish universities can offer two different types of Master’s degrees: the máster oficial and the máster propio.

The purpose of the máster official is to give access to doctoral programs in Spain or other EU countries. The focus of these degrees is academic, and they typically do not include any internships or other hands-on experiences. Másteres oficiales are approved by ANECA (Agencia Nacional de Evaluación de la Calidad y Acreditación) and the coursework for the program is the same across all institutions that offer it.


The máster propio, on the other hand, is a degree that is designed by the university that is offering it. The focus of this type of degree is to provide hands-on experience for professional development as well as an academic component. These degrees are evaluated and managed by the Postgraduate Studies School at each university. Additionally, in this type of degree, instructors can be teachers or professionals with many years of experience in their field, meaning that while they may not be career academics, they often have unique insights to pass on to their students. A máster propio does not allow you to apply for a Ph.D. program in Spain.

The Teach & Learn in Spain program is very demanding at a personal, professional and academic level, as it combines the teaching practice, class attendance and completing all the requirements of the master’s degree in just one year.

However, the effort is worthwhile because it allows combining academic training with practical work experience in an international context.

If you have enthusiasm, energy, patience, flexibility, willingness to learn and you want to improve your future career opportunities, this is your program.

To apply for the program there are three basic requirements:

  • To be a native English speaker
  • To be in possession of a Bachelor’s degree
  • 3.0 GPA

This and other relevant information for your application is listed under Admissions.
