Access and admission

Applicant profile and access requirements

Recommended applicant profile

Applicants should hold bachelor's degrees or equivalent undergraduate degrees in medicine and surgery and have obtained an official qualification in a medical specialization. This will ensure that students have the necessary basic knowledge at the start of the course. International students must submit certification of their specialization issued in the country of origin. If the qualification has not been officially recognized in Spain, they will not be able to practise in the medical profession.

Access requirements and conditions

General 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
  • 1. Bachelor's degree or equivalent undergraduate degree in medicine or medicine and surgery. International students must meet the recognition requirements established in Article 16.2* of Royal Decree 861/2010.
  • 2. In addition to the requirements described in Point 1, candidates must hold an official health specialist qualification (international students' specialist qualifications do not need to be officially recognized), corresponding to the specific advanced medical skill that the candidate has selected. In exceptional circumstances, resident doctors in the final years of their training may be admitted, provided that they will complete the training by the end of the master's degree course.
  • 3. Previous experience in the specific advanced medical skill for which the applicant wishes to enrol.


*Royal Decree 861/2010: Article 16.2. Holders of a qualification from outside the framework of the European Higher Education Area may also be admitted, without official recognition of their degree, provided that the University of Barcelona can verify that the qualification corresponds to a level of education that is equivalent to official Spanish degrees and authorizes the holder to enter official postgraduate courses in the country of issue. Admission shall not, in any case, imply that prior qualifications have been officially recognized as equivalent to a Spanish degree, and does not confer recognition for any purposes other than that of admission to the master's degree course.

Pre-enrolment

- Second period: 5 June - 31 August 2023.

Notes:

  • Pre-enrolment fee: A pre-enrolment fee of 30,21 euros is charged. Students who apply to more than one master's degree must pay the fee for each pre-enrolment request. Pre-enrolment requests cannot be processed until this fee has been paid.Fees will only be refunded if the master's degree in question is suspended.
  • Reserved places: A maximum of 5% of the new places of the master's degree are reserved for students who meet the general and specific access requirements and accredit the recognition of a degree of disability equal to or greater than 33%.

Required documentation

Selection criteria

The following aspects will be assessed together (weighted as shown):
  • Previous skills and knowledge in the specific area of the selected advanced medical skill, assessed on the basis of the curriculum vitae and the corresponding certificates for courses, conferences, publications, etc.: 25%.
  • Certified experience of clinical practice and/or research in the specific advanced medical skill for which the applicant wishes to enrol: 25%.
  • The candidate's academic transcript (including assessment reports): 25%.
  • Certified knowledge English (level B1, Cambridge University First Certificate, a score of 450 for the TOEFL examination, or an equivalent level): 25%.
  • Personal interview, if necessary, to clarify aspects of the above points.


Applications will be accepted from candidates who meet the admission requirements, and from candidates who do not meet the requirements at the time of application but are expected to have met them before the start of the course. Candidates must submit the supporting documents for evaluation, together with a statement of interest that outlines their reasons for applying.

Notification

The Coordination Committee for the master's degree specializations will carry out the selection process by assessing the degree to which each candidate meets the various requirements. The course secretary will notify students of admission decisions within the period established by the Coordination Committee.

Placements

Placements in a company or another type of organization are an integral part of university studies, providing first-hand experience of working methodologies in students' chosen professional fields. They offer invaluable practical experience for the transition into work after graduation.



Placements are supervised by tutors and subject to assessment. They are therefore included in the academic record.  There is also an option to complete non-curricular placements of up to 750 hours, which can be extended to 900 hours. For both curricular and non-curricular placements, an educational cooperation agreement is signed between the UB and the company, institution or other organization at which the placement will be carried out.



Institutional information


Career opportunities

What can you work on ?

The master's degree does not lead to an officially recognized health specialization. As medicine is a legally regulated profession, students with an official or officially recognized qualification are already authorized to work in the health specialization with which they are admitted. The master's degree enables students to develop advanced medical skills in their field of knowledge, and to gain the admission requirements for the corresponding doctoral programme.
