  • Can I study a master’s degree course on a part-time basis?

  • Do I have to have completed the studies corresponding to the Master's entrance qualification in order to pre-register for the Master's degree?

    No, pre-enrolment in the master's degree programme is open to those who are in one of these situations:

    1. Students who are in possession of an official university degree that gives access to Master's studies, or who are in the process of obtaining it, at the latest by the dates indicated in the calendar on the website https://ir.uv.es/ixsr0oz.

    In any case, students in possession of a university degree will have priority in enrolment over students in case b). Therefore, students who have yet to complete the Final Degree Project and up to a maximum of 9 ECTS credits will only be able to access the master's degree if, once enrolment has been completed and the waiting list of students accessing with completed studies has been called up, there are still vacant places on the master's degree.

  • What is an ECTS?

    An ECTS credit is the measurement used in order to establish the length of university studies. The price of university studies is also calculated on the basis of the price of an ECTS credit. 

  • Is it possible to access the Master’s Degree in Law Practice or the Master’s Degree in General Health Psychology with a foreign qualification?

    In these two cases, foreign degrees have to be validated even if they have been issued by an educational institution that is part of the EHEA.

  • Are the master’s degrees offered in the pre-enrolment Ordinary phase and in the pre-enrolment Extraordinary phase the same?

Pre-enrolment Procedure

  • Can I amend the pre-enrolment application that I submitted or attach new documents to it?

    Candidates cannot amend their pre-enrolment application once it has been submitted. If they wish to make changes they must withdraw their application and submit a new one within the deadline set for pre-enrolment. To do so, they must access their application at “My procedures” in the Online Office (ENTREU) and choose the options offered.

    To attach documents to their application, candidates must access “My procedures” in the Online Office (ENTREU). There they can check the applications that they have submitted and choose the master’s degree pre-enrolment application. The column called “Actions” offers the option to attach documents.

  • What does the admission process to a master’s degree involve?

    Each master’s degree has an Academic Coordinating Committee that runs the degree. As part of the admission process, after each of the phases in which pre-enrolment is organised, these committees meet and assess the candidates’ applications. As a result, the Student Services publish the list of candidates admitted, included on the waiting list and excluded. Additionally, each applicant is individually notified by email of the final result of the process. 

  • Do I have to be physically present in the waiting list call?

    No, you don’t. The call of candidates from the waiting list is not made face-to-face. The Student Services staff will make the admission offers following the order of the waiting list according to the number of places available after the enrolment period.

    The result of the waiting list call is notified to the students who are now admitted to a master’s degree.

  • When does the pre-enrolment period for a master’s degree start?

    Pre-enrolment in an official master’s degree for the academic year starting in September is open during the previous months February to June (Ordinary Phase) and July to September (Extraordinary Phase). Once approved the calendar, usually in Februrary, the exact dates will be available at: https://ir.uv.es/F5o1XDL During these two periods, candidates may apply through the UV Online Office.

  • What is the difference between pre-enrolment and enrolment?

    Pre-enrolment is a process that takes place before enrolment during which applications for a course are assessed and the places available are allocated. Therefore, the final step in the pre-enrolment process is to notify candidates if they have been admitted, included on the waiting list or excluded.

    Enrolment is therefore a process that follows pre-registration. Only students admitted in the corresponding pre-registration phase who, in addition, have accredited the completion of the studies that give access to the Master's degree can enrol in the established period (see the exact dates at: https://ir.uv.es/ixsr0oz). Once the enrolment period and the waiting list appeals have been completed, if places are still available, students who have been admitted and who have pending studies (TFG/Final Year Project and a maximum of 9 ECTS credits) may enrol.

  • How many waiting list calls are there?

    One, only carried out in Ordinary Phase. Check the exact dates at: https://ir.uv.es/H0aNJVq

    Students who couldn’t get a place in the waiting list call wishing to participate in Extraordinary Phase, must submit a new application.

  • Is there an application processing fee?

    Yes, but only for holders of degrees issued outside the EHEA that have not been officially recognised in Spain. In these cases, the processing of the pre-enrolment application is subject to a fee of €155.22 for the verification of equivalence of the foreign qualification giving access to the master’s degree. The fee is payable by bank card at the time of submitting the online pre-enrolment application.
