Admission Process

Key points before starting the process

Only student applications with high school diplomas (bachilleratos) in Health Sciences will be considered.

It is essential that your mother tongue is Spanish, or that you pass our Spanish test at the B2 level (Cambridge levels, CEFR - Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).

Please refer to the admissions process for the Bachelor's in Medicine for more information.

1. Credit recognition process

Request a credit recognition plan*—it’s simple, free of cost and commitment-free.

Any questions related to recognised subjects should be sent to convalidaciones@universidadeuropea.es.

In order to request a credit recognition plan, you must provide the following documents:

  • Personal academic certificate from your previous institution.
  • Study plan stamped by the previous centre’s Registrar’s office.
  • Academic transcript of the subjects taken and/or enrolled in at the previous centre.
  • Translation of your official degree (only for foreign students).

*The credit recognition plan is intended to be used as guidance. It will not be officially recognised until all of the information in the file is validated and approved by the Dean of the Faculty.

**The request for recognition of subjects does not entail participation in the process, for which in addition to the process, you must complete the application and corresponding assessments.

2. Complete the application

You may submit your application for admission to the University from 15 January to 23 July.

The process is as follows:

  • The first step is to fill out an online application depending on your eligibility, and arrange to take the admission tests for the Bachelor’s in Medicine at the next available date. Apply online.
