In this role the Department is responsible for administering the DELE (Diplomas in Spanish as a Foreign Language) examinations, as well as providing students with extracurricular language courses from A1 to B2 level.

These Diplomas are the only official qualifications issued by the Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Spanish Ministry of Education, accrediting levels of competence and command of the Spanish language and are internationally recognised by corporations, Chambers of Commerce and private and public educational institutions. These qualifications do not expire.
