The pre-enrolment is the process by which a candidate applies for the admission to a doctoral programme.
The requirements that the applicant must meet to be admitted are regulated by the Spanish Royal Decree 99/2011. Please note that the information shown here is just a summary. If you have any doubts, please contact the Doctorate School.
The pre-enrolment process is completely online. If you do not have a UPV user you will have to request one as a first step of the application. At the end of the pre-enrolment process you must upload a PDF copy of the required documentation. The originals (or certified / legalized copies) will be required later, after the official enrolment is done.
The Academic Commission of the requested doctoral program will study the application and in case of needing additional information, will contact the candidate. According to the Doctoral School’s Services Charter the deadline for resolving applications (duly submitted) is 45 days.
Please note that most doctoral programs require that applicants have a proposal for thesis director and research plan to be accepted. You can consult the contact details of the different academic commissions here.

Once the Academic Commission of the Doctorate Program has validated the admission, the applicant will be summoned immediately to formalize the enrolment, which should be done within 10 days.
The enrolment is annual (by academic year) and, as in any other degree, must be renewed obligatorily during all the doctoral study period.
