Internships

External internship rules.

Internships are a key component of your training. Acquiring experience after what you have learnt in your degree is the best way to enter the employment market. There are two types of internships: curricular—which are included in your study plan—and extracurricular—which you can do on a voluntary basis.

In order to complete curricular internships in companies, you shall need to have passed 50% of the credits and to have registered for the subject before starting your internship. These internships are monitored by the company as well as the internship coordinator and interim and final reports are prepared for evaluation.

If you want to take your work experience to the next level before finishing your university education, you can pursue an extracurricular internship. It’s possible to do internships in any academic year, but keep in mind that they are a complement to your studies; therefore, the more knowledge you acquire throughout your studies, the more you shall benefit from the internship.

Admissions Process

The admissions process for the Real Madrid Graduate School programmes can take place at any time during the year, although enrolment on any graduate programme shall depend on the availability of places.

For personalised advice, you can go to either of our university campuses (La Moraleja or Villaviciosa de Odón) or contact us by phone: 902 23 23 50 or e-mail: postgrado@uem.es to receive advice from the Graduate Admissions staff. For calls from outside Spain, please use this number: (+34) 917 407 272.

Once candidates have received advice and have provided the necessary documentation, the Graduate Admissions staff shall set a date for the entrance exams corresponding to the programme they are interested in, and for a personal interview with the Programme Director or a member of the Admissions Committee.

The admissions process is both cost-free and commitment-free for candidates until their place has been formally reserved.

The admissions process consists of the following stages:

  • Personalised advice
  • Submission of application and documentation for assessment of the candidate's profile
  • Profile assessment and interview
  • Confirmation of admission
  • Formal reservation and enrolment

Once the candidate has been contacted and has provided the required documentation, the Postgraduate Admissions team shall arrange for the applicant to take the entrance exams corresponding to the programme of interest as well as a personal interview with the Programme Director or a member of the Admissions Committee.

The admissions process is both cost-free and commitment-free for candidates until their place has been formally reserved.

Once the requirements have been met, the student shall be admitted to the master’s after their suitability has been evaluated, taking into account their previous academic record, professional experience in the relevant field, language skills (accredited by official bodies), specific complementary training, as well as any other merits that are assessed at the discretion of the Programme Management.

The Universidad Europea - Real Madrid Graduate School reserves the right to cancel any postgraduate degree, delay its start date if the minimum number of students is not reached, or to change the schedules and/or faculty if necessary. It also reserves the right to change the location or campus where it is taught.

Credit recognition and transfers

In order to ensure a smooth transfer of students both within Spain and internationally, the University (in accordance with its internal regulations and current legislation) shall assess the credits that may be subject to transfer and recognition in view of each academic file, official academic documents and official teaching received so far.

For these purposes, the transfer of credits implies that all the credits previously obtained at this or another university in the students’ official academic documents have not contributed to an official degree.

Likewise, the recognition of credits implies the acceptance by the awarding university. Such credits, having been obtained by the student in official education (in this or another university), are to be calculated in another university for the purpose of obtaining an official degree.

In accordance with regulations, university degrees, accredited work and professional experience may also be recognised in the form of credits and can be calculated for the purpose of obtaining an official degree, provided that such experience is related to the skills gained in the chosen degree, up to a maximum of 15% of the study plan’s total credits. In no case can the master's final project be recognised.

All the credits obtained by the student in official education taken at any university, the transferred credits, recognised credits and credits passed for obtaining the corresponding degree, shall be detailed in the student’s academic record and reflected in the European Supplement to the Programme.

Through the Postgraduate Commission, the University shall evaluate a student’s file and take into account the official degrees, University's own degrees and professional experience they have obtained. In addition, according to the programme and specific subjects which are equivalent in competences, contents and commitment, the Commission shall decide if they can be recognised.
