Holders of foreign qualifications may be admitted to university master’s degree courses in the following cases:
In this last case, the UB shall verify that the qualification corresponds to an educational level equivalent to an official Spanish university degree and that it enables the student to access university master’s degree courses in the issuing country. Admission to the university master’s degree does not in any case mean that the student’s qualification has been officially recognized as equivalent to a Spanish university degree or recognized for any other purpose except that of taking the university master’s degree in question. The documents that are required to access the master’s degree course without previous official recognition are as follows:
In addition, students must pre-enrol as part of the selection process.
The admission procedure for each master’s degree is established by the UB (*). This procedure includes specific criteria, criteria of merit and, in certain cases, specific previous education.
The admission criteria are described under the section 'Course offerings’ in the pages grouped at University master’s degree courses and on the webpage for each course.
In all cases, successful admission depends on the evaluation criteria established by the university and by the directors of the master’s degree course.
Students must complete pre-enrolment as part of the selection process for their chosen university master’s degree course. This is done by filling in a form. Each master’s degree course has a specific form, which can be found in the section 'Course offerings’ in the pages grouped at University master’s degree courses. Forms are available during pre-enrolment periods and contain information on pre-enrolment selection and evaluation criteria, pre-enrolment and enrolment deadlines and the name of the coordinator, his/her email and contact telephone number.
* In accordance with the provisions established in Article 17 of Royal Decree 1393/29 October 2007, students may be admitted to a university master’s degree course if they meet the specific requirements and evaluation criteria. The university shall determine the admission requirements, which may include previous education requirements, depending on the subject area of the master’s degree course.
