In order to enrol in this programme, the student is required by law, in accordance with the provisions set forth in Royal Decree 861/2010, To possess an official Spanish undergraduate degree, or otherwise a certification issued by a higher education institution belonging to another State within the European Higher Education Area that facilitates access to master’s degrees.
To possess a degree in accordance with educational systems outside the European Higher Education Area, without the need to get said degree ‘homologated’, as long as the University verifies that the student possesses a level of training equivalent to the corresponding official Spanish university degree, and that they are qualified to pursue a master’s degree in the country of origin. Access to the programme by this means will not imply, under any circumstance, the ‘homologation’ of the previous degree that the interested party possesses, nor its recognition for purposes other than enrolling in master’s degree courses.
The admissions process for programmes offered through the Escuela Universitaria Real Madrid – Universidad Europea can be done at any time of the year.

The admissions process does not involve any cost for the candidate or any commitment until the place reservation has been formalised.
Once the entry requirements have been met and their suitability for the programme has been evaluated, the student will be admitted to the programme.

The Escuela Universitaria Real Madrid – Universidad Europea reserves the right not to teach a master’s degree, or to push back its start date, if the minimum number of students required for the programme is not reached.

To facilitate the mobility of students both inside and outside of Spain, the University, in accordance with its internal regulations and current legislation, will assess the credits that can be transferred and recognised on the student’s academic record and official academic documents, as well as those related to any official studies completed by the student.
For these purposes, the transfer of credits implies that the official academic documents accrediting the studies completed by the student, will include the total number of credits obtained in official, previously completed studies at this or another university which have not been put towards the possession of an official degree.
Likewise, the recognition of credits implies the University’s acceptance of credits that, having been obtained by the student in official studies—at this or another university—may be counted for the purpose of obtaining an official degree.
In accordance with current regulations, the student’s previous university degrees and accredited professional work experience may also be recognised in the form of credits, and may count towards their obtaining of an official degree, provided that said experience is related to the competencies inherent to said degree, with a maximum of 15% of the credits that make up the study plan. In no circumstance may the final master’s thesis be recognised.
All credits obtained by the student in official classes taken at any university—credits that have been transferred, recognised and passed in order to obtain the corresponding degree—will be included in the student’s academic record and reflected in the European Diploma Supplement.
To determine if these can be recognised, the University’s postgraduate commission will assess the student’s record, the official qualifications they can contribute, their previous university degrees and/or professional experience, and, in accordance with the programme and its specific, relevant subjects, the student’s competencies, work and dedication."
If you’d like us to provide you with a personalised credit recognition plan quickly, free and without any commitment, you can do so here.
