Below, we will outline the main steps for you to take to become part of Universidad Europea’s student community. For more detailed information on Universidad Europea’s admissions process, we recommend you consult our undergraduate admissions regulations.
See the admissions process details for the following degrees:
1. START YOUR ADMISSIONS 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.
Once you have completed your online application, you will receive an email with access to our pre-student portal.
Request a credit recognition plan*—it’s simple, free of charge and commitment-free.
Any questions regarding credit recognition should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to request a credit recognition plan, you must provide the following documents:
If you are applying for credit recognition based on your previous work experience, you must provide a:
*Company certificate - only when it is necessary to demonstrate duties carried out at the company, or in the case of students with international work experience who cannot provide a certificate of work history (vida laboral). Once the application is completed, you will receive your credit recognition plan within a few days.
*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.
Once you have received your validations and are satisfied with them, you must make the online payment of the admissions tests fee (€150) through the pre-student portal (you will have previously received an email with your access link.) 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.

Once logged into the platform, you will need to click GO TO APPLICATION. If the RESERVE step is highlighted blue, it means you have been accepted into the University. You can also check with your advisor.
Additional test for Faculty of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences Students
