Holders of an undergraduate degree, as well as holders of the former three-year and four-year undergraduate degrees are eligible candidates for these studies.
The aim of Master's degrees is to provide students with specialised or multidisciplinary training to improve their academic and professional status, and to complement their education with optional subjects where they can become familiar with research activities.
These official titles are valid throughout Spain and in the European Union. Enrolment fees are established according to public-university prices, and students can apply for government grants and funding.
Official Master's degrees may last one academic year (60 ECTS credits) or two academic years (120 ECTS credits) maximum.
What are the requirements for accessing an official Master's degree?
To access a Master's degree, students must hold an official Spanish undergraduate degree or an equivalent academic title issued by an institution belonging to the European Higher Education Area.
Also, students who hold an official foreign undergraduate degree recognised by the Spanish Ministry of Education are entitled to access Master's degrees.
Non-recognised foreign university titles will be accepted following a University of Alicante's Centre for Lifelong Postgraduate Education (CONTINUA) positive technical report.
UA's Centre for Lifelong Postgraduate Education (CONTINUA) is the organism in charge of verifying that candidates meet the requirements to enter official Master's degrees. Tel. 34 965909422. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
