Pre-enrolment and admission for Masters

Pre-enrolment

What do I have to do to pre-enrol in a program?

Each Master’s website contains a section called ‘Information on the Master’s course’. This section contains the telephone numbers and e-mails to which all questions relating to the content of the courses, dates and classroom locations, as well as pre-enrolment and admission procedures, should be addressed.

Applicants must pre-enrol ON LINE from 1 April to 24 May, 2019.

In order for pre-enrolment to be valid, students must submit the required documentation online. Students unable to submit online should send their documents to the secretariats of the Master’s degree courses on which they have pre-enrolled. These documents must be sent to as many Master’s courses as applied for.

Please remember that the average grade from your academic record that will be used to calculate the access grade will be that which appears on the record submitted with the pre-enrolment. In the case of students from the UPV/EHU, it will be the grade as calculated on 24 May, 2019.

For Master’s with compulsory items taught in Basque and Spanish, students must choose the language they prefer by completing the language selection document (doc, 216 Kb), and sending it with the rest of the documents to be submitted during pre-enrolment:

  • Advocacy
  • Architecture

If you wish to pre-enrol on one of the following Master’s courses, which are taught both online and in traditional (classroom-based) format, please complete the format selection form (doc, 216 Kb), and send it with the rest of the documents to be submitted during pre-enrolment:

  • Computational Engineering and Smart Systems

Submitting the required documentation:

Documents can be submitted either online through the GAUR application, or by conventional mail to the secretariat of the Master’s course on which you wish to pre-enrol. The address, email and phone number of these secretariats can be found on the website of each Master’s course.

Submission dates:

From 1 April to 24 May, 2019.

For Master’s courses pending authorisation, the deadline for pre-enrolment will be established at a later date.

Final-year undergraduate students who wish to enrol on a Master’s course and who are as yet unable to request their degree certificate must pre-enrol and will be admitted on the condition that they are in possession of said certificate when finalising their registration.

Please remember that the average grade from your academic record that will be used to calculate the access grade will be that which appears on the record submitted with the pre-enrolment. In the case of students from the UPV/EHU, it will be the grade as calculated on 24 May, 2019.

Documentation:

General documentation for all students:

  • Photocopy of ID card, residence permit, national identity card or passport.
  • Photocopy of personal academic transcript, specifying all grades and subjects taken over the course of the undergraduate degree.
  • Projects, articles and/or publications by the student.
  • Other achievements (letter of recommendation, etc.).

In addition to the above, students with foreign degrees that have not been officially recognised must submit:

  • A sworn translation of the degree and transcript in one of the two official languages of the Autonomous Community of the Basque Country. If the Master’s course on which they wish to pre-enrol is taught in English, documents can be sent in that language.
  • Certificate of Equivalence for Average Grades

In addition to the documents outlined above, some Master's degrees have other specific requirements. Please check on the Master's website whether the degree on which you wish to pre-enrol is subject to these requirements, and if so, what they are. All documents must be presented by the end of the specified pre-enrolment period.

In the event of any problems, please contact the secretariat of the corresponding Master’s degree. Contact information is provided on each individual websit.

Admission

As of 21 June, once the Academic Committee of each Master's course or the Postgraduate Committee (as appropriate) has selected those to be admitted from among the pre-enrolments received, students can consult their status either on the website or here: pre-enrolment applications status.

Confirmation

Once a student has been accepted and notified over the GAUR platform, they have from 24 to 28 June to confirm their intention to participate on the Master's degree course. If they fail to do so, as of 29 June their pre-enrolment will automatically be cancelled and the next student on the waiting list will be duly notified.

Successful applicants who confirm their intention to study the Master’s degree in question will be requested by the University to begin the definitive registration process. In order to complete the registration process, students must submit both the original documentation and photocopies for comparison, or certified photocopies. Please consult the secretariat of your chosen Master’s course regarding the procedure for submitting said documentation.
