Recommended applicant profile

Applicants should have an EHEA bachelor's degree in physics, with a standard study load of 240 ECTS credits, or an equivalent undergraduate degree. UB graduates applying for the course should have completed the major in Fundamental Physics as part of their bachelor's degree. In addition, UB graduates should preferably have completed the optional subjects most closely related with the specialization (Particle Physics and Gravitation or Astrophysics and Space Sciences) they wish to take.

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 issued by an institution outside the framework of the European Higher Education Area. In this case, applicants must request homologation of the degree to its equivalent official Spanish university qualification or obtain express approval 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. 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

EHEA bachelor's degree or llicenciatura degree in physics, or an equivalent undergraduate degree issued outside Spain.
