Exeter DELE Accredited Examination Centre

Spanish DELE exams

DELE Exams are official Spanish language proficiency diplomas, which are administered by the Instituto Cervantes.

They are based on the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR-L) and recognised worldwide by businesses and universities.

If you want Spanish language to be an asset in your career, it is recommended to have your skills internationally recognised with the appropriate DELE certificate. This will add a life-long diploma to your employability skills in your CV.
