Certification Services (for students)
We offer a certification service of photocopies of your original documents at our offices in Barcelona and Madrid. We do not verify original documents for legalisation purposes.
This service costs 40€ for up to a maximum of five separate documents which can be paid by debit or credit card during your appointment. You can book an appointment by e-mailing us at email@example.com
When you come to your appointment you must bring your original UK documents and the photocopies to be certified. For audit purposes the British Council will keep a copy of every document certified in a secure file for a period of seven years.
Legalisaton of UK documents
The British Council and the British Consulates in Spain are not able to provide assistance with certifying or legalising UK educational documents. From 31 October 2021, if you require educational or professional recognition in Spain of UK educational documents, these will need to be certified and then legalised by the FCDO Legalisation Office. Prior to sending your degree certificate or other educational document to the FCDO Legalisation Office your certificate or transcript must be certified by a notary public in the UK. Further information about this is available here.
