Access and admission

Applicant profile and access requirements

Recommended applicant profile

Students with a bachelor's degree, pre-EHEA degree, diploma, engineering degree, architecture degree, technical engineering degree or technical architecture degree or an equivalent university qualification.

Students who hold a UB-specific degree or an undergraduate degree issued by the University of Barcelona can be also admitted to postgraduate courses, as these degrees are considered equivalent university qualifications for this purpose.

Applications from students who hold university-specific qualifications issued by other universities in Spain are decided by the postgraduate committee, or by a committee formed ad hoc by the School responsible for the programme, once it has been verified that the qualification the student holds is equivalent to a UB-specific degree or undergraduate degree issued by the University of Barcelona.

Applicants who do not hold the required university qualification can be admitted to the programme and opt for a diploma or university extension certificate with the same name and number of credits as the postgraduate course, as long as this option has been established.

Notwithstanding the above, students having less than 10% left of the necessary credits to complete the required university qualification can be admitted conditionally to postgraduate courses, as long as this option has been established. In this case, they must prove that they hold the qualification that entitles them to enter the course on the date established in the course proposal as the end of the teaching period, at the latest. If the course does not contemplate the possibility of incorporating students without a university degree, these students shall not have the right to obtain any kind of qualification or to a part or total refund of the enrolment fee. If the course has established that people without university degrees can be admitted, students with a conditional enrolment can opt to receive the corresponding diploma or a university extension certificate.

Applicants to any university extension course do not need to hold a university qualification to be admitted. However, they must demonstrate a two years of professional experience in the area of the master's degree.

Access requirements and conditions

The course is also open to students with no prior university education, who will acquire the same knowledge and skills and receive a specific qualification for their learner group. Information on the access requirements and other conditions can be obtained from the course directors.
