Economic information about the URV master’s degrees

The URV is a public university, so the prices of the university master's degrees are set every year in June by the Catalan government.

The price of registering on a master's degree depends on the number of credits (normally 60 ECTS credits per full-time course, or between 18 and 46 if you study part time). To this you should add the taxes and the compulsory insurance, which amount to approximately €150.

A master’s degree of 90 or120 ECTS takes more than one academic year to complete. For this reason, in the second year you have to enrol in any remaining credits (in most cases 30 or 60, respectively) and pay the fees and the mandatory insurance.

The price per credit set by the Catalan government is €46. However, some master’s degrees have special prices.

The pre-enrolment fee is €30.21 (non-returnable), which is not discounted from the final cost of enrolment.

If you are required to do any bridging courses, remember that they count as extra credits, on top of the 60 ECTS, and should therefore be added to the total cost of the enrolment.

Students with foreign qualifications: In your first enrolment fee, you will be charged the Academic tax for university graduates from foreign education systems, set by the Catalan government at €218.15.

Payment of enrolment fees

Generally speaking payment is made at the same time as you do the enrolment. However, there are other forms of payment that may help you to pay the fees more comfortably.

Some students – for example, those from large families or who are handicapped – are exempted from paying enrolment fees.
