What is PROFEX?

PROFEX is the Ministry of Education of Spain's online portal used to apply for NALCAP. It can get tricky at times but if you follow the handbook carefully, you will do great!

To begin, you can open a PROFEX account at anytime, as well as filling out your personal information and some curriculum/resume information. If you already have a PROFEX account, just log in.

We suggest not using a translator for PROFEX as it may cause glitches which may affect the information you have already completed/uploaded on your application. Just follow the videos below and the PROFEX handbook slowly and step-by-step.

Also note that the first and last days that the application period is open, it may get busy and the website may experience some issues. We apologize for any inconveniences and ask you for your patience.
