Resolution of the application

  • The interested party will be informed of the resolution and, if appropriate, their academic transcript will be updated.

  • The annulment of registration will be recorded on the computer system.


  • If doctoral students want to annul their registration within five calendar days of completing the registration process, the secretary's office of the faculty/school will take the necessary steps and they will only have to pay an administration charge and the academic pathway study fee, if applicable. Once the administration charge has been paid, the registration will be annulled.
  • For the request for annulment to be granted, students must have paid the corresponding part-payment of their registration fee.
  • If the corresponding fees are not paid within the established periods, students will be required to pay these fees and the registration will not be annulled. Doctoral students in this situation will be temporarily suspended. Certificates and academic transcripts will not be issued to students while they are suspended. Suspended students may not resume their studies at the University in subsequent academic years until they have paid all outstanding fees. This is stipulated in the decree on public prices and applies to all Catalan universities.


  • Annulment of the registration results in students losing their place at the university and the termination of all academic and administrative consequences of the registration..
    • New students will have the documents that they submitted when they registered returned, if applicable. Students will have to go through the pre-registration procedure again if they wish to begin any other programme.
    • Other doctoral students, in order to continue on the same programme, must apply to resume their studies during the academic year after the academic year of annulment. One academic year after the annulment, students will not be able to resume their studies in the same programme and, if eventually they want to continue their doctoral studies, they will have to pre-register for a different doctoral programme.
  • If doctoral students have applied for or hold a grant or a trainee researcher position, the secretary's office must inform the Academic Management Service.
