Enrolment

Enrolment procedure

The unit responsible for organising each master's degree will notify applicants of the date, place and documents they must furnish to prove that they meet the admission requirements.
The documents to be furnished will depend on where they earned their degree or completed the course that qualifies them to enrol in the master's degree course:

At UPC schools

  • Curriculum vitae
  • If the applicant holds any additional qualifications in the field of the master's degree other than the one that qualifies him or her to enrol, he or she must provide documentary evidence thereof (original and a photocopy or a certified photocopy).

For UPC-affiliated schools or any other public university in Spain, in addition to the above, the following must also be provided:

  • Photocopy of the applicant's Spanish ID card (DNI), foreigner ID card (NIE) or passport.
  • Original and photocopy (or certified photocopy) of the qualification entitling the student to enrol in the master's degree or proof of payment of the issuing fee for it.
  • Original and photocopy (or certified photocopy) of an academic certificate listing the subjects completed, the marks received and the number of credits/hours of each one. This certificate must also show the overall average mark earned by the applicant.
  • Any other documents required by the specific master's degree course.

At foreign universities and higher education institutions:

  • Photocopy of the applicant's Spanish ID card (DNI), foreigner ID card (NIE) or passport.
  • Original and photocopy (or certified photocopy) of the homologation of the qualification entitling the applicant to enrol in the master's degree course.
  • If the qualification is not homologated, the original and a photocopy (or a certified photocopy) of the document issued by the awarding university or institution or by the competent authority for such matters in the issuing country. This document must show that the course in question had a duration of, at least, three years and that the resulting qualification entitles the holder to pursue postgraduate studies (master's degree courses) in the issuing country. If that is not possible, it must indicate the level of higher education that the qualification entitles its holder to access.
  • Original and photocopy (or certified photocopy) of the academic certificate listing the subjects taken, the marks earned and the number of credits/hours of each one. This certificate must also explain the marking system used.
  • If the applicant holds any additional qualifications in the field of the master's degree other than the one that qualifies him or her to enrol, he or she must provide documentary evidence thereof (original and a photocopy or a certified photocopy).

Important: All documents issued in non-EU countries must be legalised and bear the corresponding apostille.


As soon as the unit responsible for the master's degree course has validated the submitted documentation, the enrolment can be processed. Once the enrolment fee has been paid at the relevant bank, the applicant will officially be a student of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya master's degree course.
 

Minimum student numbers

In accordance with the criteria established by the Interuniversity Council of Catalonia, for a master's degree course to be taught, a minimum number of 20 students must have enrolled by the end of the September enrolment period. If this number is not reached, there is no guarantee that the course will be offered.

If a master's degree course is cancelled for this reason, the amount of the enrolment fee will be refunded and the affected students will be offered places in other master's degree courses.
