Entry requirements

If you’re currently studying, or already hold the school leaving certificate (Título de Bachillerato) then we look for an overall grade of 6.5 and 6 in any required subjects for entry onto the first year of our degree programmes. The required subjects will depend on the course you’re applying to study with us.  If you have, or intend to do, the common university entrance examination (PAU) this will strengthen your application.

Should you achieve less than an overall grade of 6 in the school leaving certificate, please get in touch as you may be considered for one of our four year (including foundation year) programmes.

We also accept the Bachillerato Unificado y Polivalente (BUP) when it is followed by the Curso de Orientacion Universitaria (COU) for 1st year entry.  We would need to see your academic transcript (Libro de Calificaciones) prior to making you an offer if you hold these qualifications.

Students with the Título Universitario Oficial de Diplomado en [subject area] may be able to start their undergraduate studies with us in the same subject area on a later year of entry.

For taught postgraduate study we will consider applicants with the Licenciado, the Título de Ingeniero or the Título de Arquitecto.  We look for a score of 6-8 or above.

For all levels of study, we’d also look for evidence of your English language ability. If you’ve taken an IELTS test, we’d look for:

  • Undergraduate – 6.0 overall, with no band below 6.0. Individual bands score of 0.5 below this required total may be considered.
  • Postgraduate – 6.5 overall with no band below 6.5. Individual band scores of 0.5 below this required total may be considered.

If you’ve taken another approved English language test, please contact us.
