Minimum access requirements
- For the Non-official Postgraduate Degrees (Master's degree, specialisation diploma and university expert) it is necessary to have an official Spanish University Degree or another issued by a higher education institution of the European Higher Education Area, which grants access to official postgraduate education or other degrees in accordance with educational systems outside the European area of education and which certifies a level of training equivalent to the corresponding official Spanish university degrees and that enables the country issuing the degree to access postgraduate education. Exceptionally, the academic director may admit students who comply with the university access requirement and who are working or have developed professional work that is related to the academic programme of the degree for more than three years. Students enrolled under these conditions can only obtain a certificate of achievement. Exceptionally, provisional enrolment shall be granted to those undergraduate students who have less than 30 ECTS credits (including FDP), and who may not achieve any certification until the corresponding degree is obtained. These students can not exceed 15% of the enrolment of the non-official degree.
- For other postgraduate degrees (university extension diploma), students must certify the level of access to official undergraduate education at a Spanish university according to current regulations.
