How long are master's degree programmes?
Master's programmes have a minimum length of 60 ECTS credits and a maximum of 120, equivalent to one and two academic years, respectively.
What is an ECTS credit?
It is the unit value of university courses in the European Higher Education Area. At the URV each credit is equivalent to 25 hours of student work.
What does the master’s degree price includes?
The price includes the total credits of the master's degree and the administrative fees, full time.
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.
Consult the exact cost of each type of ECTS and the economic items which are included in the enrolment.
When do classes start?
This academic year 2021-22 will start on 27th September although some master's degrees start in October or November.
