UEA offers three international certificates:
- Diplomas of Spanish (DELE)
- Diplomas of French (DELF)
- Diplomas of British Sign Language (Level Award in British Sign Language)
DELF and DELE are internationally recognised and enjoy great prestige not only among public and private educational institutions and authorities, but also in the business world and chambers of commerce. They constitute a guarantee in assessing and evaluating linguistic competence in French and Spanish respectively.
They are also lifelong certifications which do not expire and can enrich a person's professional portfolio: they describe in meaningful terms what someone is capable of doing in French and Spanish and can be added to a CV and be recognised by employers or universities.
In many countries, these diplomas have been adopted by educational authorities and accredited schools as a compliment to their own evaluation systems. They are useful to facilitate promotion at work and access to education.
