Vocational training, which is divided into intermediate level (technical) and advanced level (higher technical), covers all courses that qualify students to be employed in different jobs and professions.
Currently, about 150 official degrees grouped by vocational areas are taught. To begin any post-secondary vocational training, you must have a Spanish secondary education certificate or its equivalent - technical or higher technical, or a university degree.
Students who complete post-secondary vocational training receive a higher technical degree, which allows them to enrol directly for university degrees without admission cut-offs.
For degrees with admission cut-offs, students must pre-register but can take a special exam to improve their admission grade. Students from Spanish secondary education as also from post-secondary vocational training (CFGS) must seek admission at the University as part of the general pre-registration group, without any specific reservation of seats; it is therefore recommended that CFGS students take the voluntary exam (which is the specific section of the Spanish university admission exams or PAU) to improve their admission grade. You can find all the necessary information in the Admission section of the Student Services website.
