  • If the student wants 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 the student will only have to pay an administration charge. Once the administration charge has been paid, the student's registration will be annulled.

  • If the application for annulment is not presented within the established periods and the corresponding fees are not paid, the student will be required to pay these fees. 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.


  • Students whose registration is annulled will lose their places and the registration will be null and void.
    • If they are new doctoral students, they must repeat the official pre-registration in order to begin any university course.
    • All other students who wish to continue their studies must apply to resume their courses during the academic year after the annulment. If after a full academic year they have not applied to resume their studies on the original programme, they will no longer permitted to do so. If they decide to undertake doctoral studies in the future, they must pre-register for a different programme.
  • New students will be returned the documents that they submitted when they registered.
  • If the doctoral student has applied for a grant, the secretary's office must inform the Academic Management Service.
