To access the University master's degree courses you should meet the general and specific access requirements and complete a pre-enrolment application.

 

General access requirements

In accordance with Article 16 of Royal Decree 1393/2007, of 29 October, students must hold one of the following qualifications to access a university master's degree::

  • An official Spanish degree.
  • A degree issued by a higher education institution within the framework of the European Higher Education Area that authorizes the holder to access university master's degree courses in the country of issue.
  • A qualification issued by an institution outside the framework of the European Higher Education Area. In this case, students must request homologation of the degree to its equivalent official Spanish university qualification or obtain express approval of admission from the University of Barcelona, which will conduct a study of equivalence to ensure that the degree is of a comparable level to an official Spanish university qualification and that it grants access to university master's degree study in the country of issue. Successful admission does not imply that the applicant's previous qualification has been homologated to its Spanish equivalent or granted recognition of equivalence for any other purposes than access to the master's degree programme.

Specific access requirements

For each master's degree specific requirements may be established, such as preference for certain bachelor's degrees, knowledge of languages or professional experience, among others.
Where it is deemed necessary by the Coordinating Committee for the master’s degree and depending on the candidate's previous training, they may have to complete bridging courses up to a maximum of 30 ECTS credits.


For all applications meeting the general and specific requirement, in cases when the number of applications is higher than the places offered, the master's degree Coordination Committee will prioritize them following the selection criteria established for each master's degree. A resolution of admission and waiting list will be issued.

The information on access requirements and selection criteria can be read in the master's degree information sheet or website.
 

Pre-enrolment

To access a university master’s degree course, students must first pre-enrol as part of the selection process .

The Pre-enrolment section in the master's degree information sheet and website, includes the dates, required documentation and links to online forms, once the pre-enrolment process is open. Pre-enrolment dates may vary depending on each master's degree and cover different time periods. Pre-enrolment is usually online.
You can pre-enrol in different courses, but you must pay a fee of around €30 for each application.

When you do not meet all requirements at the time of pre-enrolment, but will meet them before the start of the course, you should state so in the pre-enrolment form. At the time of enrolment, you must meet all the requirements and submit the documentation that certifies this.

The master's degree Coordination Committee will prioritize applications following the selection criteria established for each master's degree. A resolution of admission and waiting list will be issued.
