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

Students must hold one of the following qualifications to be admitted to the master's degree:
  • Bachelor's degree in Archaeology.
  • Bachelor's degree or pre-EHEA degree in History (in the former course programmes, pre-EHEA degree in Geography and History, Philosophy and Arts).
  • Other Pre-EHEA degrees and bachelor's degrees could be considered to grant access to the master's degree. In all cases, acceptance depends on the Selection Committee, which may also require applicants to enrol for the bridging courses that it considers necessary, as explained in the corresponding section.
