How to enrol in a master's degree step by step

The documentation you have to present depends on where you have studied. Bear in mind that during the pre-enrolment process, the university can request further documents to better assess your academic and professional profile.

Once you have confirmed your pre-registration, you have to upload an electronic copy of the following documents through the online document manager.

You have until 10 days after the end of the pre-registration phase to upload your documents. If you do not upload your documents within this deadline, you will be excluded and you will have to repeat the pre-registration process and pay another pre-registration fee.

  • Academic transcript or European Diploma Supplement listing the subjects studied, grades and number of hours/credits for each of them as well as the GPA (Great Point Average) of the subjects.

I have studied at a foreign university:

You have to access online document manager and upload the following documents.

  • Valid Spanish identity card (DNI) or passport (foreign students only).

If you are a foreign prospective student, you can fill in the pre-enrolment form with another valid identity document but you have to take into account that you must show your passport before enrolment and degree issuance.

  • Diploma that entitles you to access the master's programme. If you do not have the diploma, you can present the receipt to show that you have paid the issuance fee.
  • Academic transcript or European Diploma Supplement listing the subjects studied, grades and number of hours/credits for each of them. It must also contain information about the grading system applied as well as the GPA.

  • The specific documents required by each master's degree. Check the description of the master's degree to find out what the specific requirements are.

During the pre-enrolment process there is no need for the documents to be legalized or officially translated. Before you complete your enrolment, however, your documents must be legalized and translated, so you should consult the Requirements for foreign documents as soon as possible.

Once your application has received academic approval and you have been admitted you must present either the original versions and photocopies or attested photocopies of the previous documents (except your CV).

In addition, documentation issued outside Spain must comply with certain translation and legalization requirements. Click here for more information on these requirements.

Have you studied in the European Higher Education Area?
The European Diploma Supplement (EDS) is a document that provides information about the grading system used for your university qualification and the access that your qualification provides to master's programmes. If your qualification has a EDS, you should present it because it speeds up the process of checking your admission documents by acting as both your academic transcript and the document that enables you to access the master's programme.

Have you had your foreign qualification officially recognised?
If a higher education qualification obtained abroad is to be valid in Spain, it needs to be officially recognized. A foreign qualification that has been officially recognized has the same validity as the Spanish qualification it is recognized to be equivalent to. Therefore, if you have had your qualification officially recognized, you should follow the same process as the candidates from Spanish universities and attach the certificate of official recognition.
