The Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) offers back-to-back academic programmes that can be chosen directly when pre-registering for a bachelor's degree.
This means that students can consecutively take a bachelor's degree and a master's degree (in the fields of engineering and architecture), and can register for the master's degree when they have a maximum of 30 ECTS credits (including the bachelor's thesis) left to pass.
