Admission criteria and weight given to each aspect of an application

The specific requirements for admission to the master's degree are decided by the academic committee of the master's degree and they aim to ensure equal opportunities in admission for students who are sufficiently qualified. In any event, the aspects that will be taken into account are the following:

    • Academic record (75%)
    • Correspondence between the competencies of the degree and those of the master's degree (25%)

Entrance qualifications

Given its interdisciplinary nature, the master's degree is open to applicants from a variety of backgrounds who have undergraduate degrees in any of the areas of knowledge. Bridging courses may be set depending on applicants' entrance qualifications.

The following entrance qualifications do not require bridging courses to be taken:

    • Degrees in Architecture, Engineering and Basic Sciences

The following entrance qualifications require bridging courses to be taken:

    • Degrees in Social and Health Sciences may require applicants to take up to 15 ECTS credits in bridging courses. Once the academic committee of the master's degree has reviewed applicants' academic records, it will set bridging courses in mathematics and basic sciences

These bridging courses aim to complete applicants' knowledge so that they can take the master's degree. They are taught during the first semester of the master's degree.

If bridging courses are taken, they will not be considered part of the master's degree curriculum but will be subject to the fees for master's degree credits.
