Access, admission and enrollment


It is the process by which the student applies for admission to the master's university studies he/she wishes to begin. The application for a place will be submitted by filling out the appropriate electronic form that will be enabled on the website of the Andalusian Single District in the respective deadlines for submission of applications, in which all the master's degrees of interest to the applicant will be listed, in order of preference up to a total of six master's degrees within the offer of the Andalusian Single District. 

Agreement of the Andalusia Single University District Commission, establishing the procedure for admission to the University Master's Degrees to be taught in the 2023-2024 academic year 

Routes and requirements for access to the degree: 

Have an official Spanish university degree or another issued by a higher education institution belonging to another Member State of the European Higher Education Area that authorises access to Master's degrees.

Likewise, graduates from educational systems outside the European Higher Education Area may access without the need for the homologation of their degrees, after verification by the University that they accredit a level of training equivalent to the corresponding official Spanish university degrees and that they authorise access to postgraduate education in the country issuing the degree. Access by this means will not imply, in any case, the homologation of the previous degree held by the interested party, nor its recognition for purposes other than that of studying the Master's degree.

Recommended Income Profile:

The recommended profile of the Master's student is that of a graduate in Medicine, Biomedicine, Biochemistry, Biology, Pharmacy, Health Engineering, Biotechnology, Chemistry, and Psychology. Other profiles, such as Nursing, Physiotherapy, or Physics may also be suitable. In any case, and especially with degrees from other countries, the training acquired by the student in the studies carried out before the Master's degree will be valued. 

There are no minimum test scores or grades required for admission to the Master's programme. If the number of applications exceeds the maximum capacity, the Academic Committee of the Master will evaluate the admission criteria listed below to determine which students will be admitted:  

- Academic record of the degree (50%).

- MIR, BIR, FIR, QIR, PIR, or collaboration grants and/or research contracts (10%).

*To be admitted, non-Spanish speaking students must demonstrate a C1 level of Spanish or equivalent..
