Economic effects

  • The cancellation of registration involves all fees for tuition and bridging courses being refunded, if applicable.

  • If fees are not paid before the deadline, students will be sent a request for payment, and cancellation will not be effective. Students in this situation will be temporarily suspended. While they are temporarily suspended:

    • The University will not issue students with any certificates, academic transcripts, or their degree certificate.

    • Students will not be able to enrol in any URV courses or programmes until they rectify their situation.
  • This is stipulated in the Decree on public prices and applies to all Catalan universities


  • Cancelling the first-year registration involves losing the place and cancelling all academic and administrative effects of the registration.

    • Students will have to go through the pre-registration procedure again if they wish to begin any other programme.

    • Other doctoral students will have to apply to resume their studies during the following academic year if they wish to continue.  One year after the cancellation, students will no longer be allowed to resume the same programme; if they want to continue their doctoral studies at a later date, they will have to pre-register for a different doctoral programme.

  • If the doctoral student has applied for or has a trainee-researcher contract or grant, the Secretary's Office must notify the Academic Management Service.
