Admission Process

You are just a few steps away from becoming part of the more than 16,000 students that make up the University community of Universidad Europea. The first step is to complete your online application according to your desired University course. You can start your online application here.

By paying this fee, you confirm that you are participating in the University’s admissions process. This fee will not be refunded under any circumstance.

Once this payment is received, an advisor will be assigned to you who will help you throughout the process. With their guidance, you can choose whether to take the tests online, without having to come to campus, or by appointment, in specifically designed facilities at our University headquarters.
