Recommended applicant profile and admission requirements

Admission requirements

In accordance with Article 16 of Royal Decree 1393/29 October 2007, students must hold one of the following qualifications to access university master's degree courses:
  • An official Spanish degree.
  • A degree issued by a higher education institution within the European Higher Education Area framework that authorizes the holder to access university master's degree courses in the country of issue.
  • A qualification from outside the framework of the European Higher Education Area. In this case, the qualification should be recognized as equivalent to an official Spanish degree. If it is not recognized, the University of Barcelona shall verify that it corresponds to a level of education that is equivalent to official Spanish degrees and that it authorizes the holder to access university master's degree courses in the country of issue. Admission shall not, in any case, imply that prior qualifications have been recognized as equivalent to a Spanish master's degree and does not confer recognition for any purposes other than that of admission to the master's degree course.

Specific requirements

The same requirements are applied by all participating institutions. Therefore:

  • Candidates must hold a bachelor's degree or equivalent undergraduate qualification in chemistry, physics or materials science. Applicants who do not hold one of these qualifications, but have a science degree and sufficient knowledge to follow the programme may be admitted, under the tutor's supervision. Such students may be asked to complete additional bridging courses, as determined by the Academic Committee or as agreed with their supervisor and tutor.

  • Level B2 of English or higher.

Students may enrol at any of the participating universities. Decisions on admission, credit recognition and validation of previous studies are taken by the Academic Coordination Committee.
