The Postgraduate Open Programme (PAP) tries to bring the postgraduate formation closer to every university graduate. Giving them the opportunity to design their own curriculum without being forced to enroll in a study.
The programme is composed of a set of subjects from a wide variety of official masters. This programme allows students to enroll in subjects from different masters, configuring a custom-made training, covering students specific necessities.(go up)
Any university graduate can enroll in the Postgraduate Open Programme.
Foreign students can also enroll if they have a degree allowing the enrollment in a Master Degree in their country. In this last case, it's compulsory to make an equilavence study of the degree.
