University Master’s degrees are official qualifications that are subject to an accreditation process by the Spanish Ministry for Universities. They are therefore recognised as valid qualifications throughout Spain, as well as in the countries that make up the European Higher Education Area (EHEA).
University Master’s degrees provide the advanced specialist training required to boost one’s professional prospects after earning an undergraduate qualification, or to begin a research career that will later lead to a PhD.
University Master’s degrees include enabling Master’s that provide access to regulated professions.
University Master’s degrees last between one (minimum) and two (maximum) years, depending on the number of ECTS credits they contain: 60, 90 or 120. In addition to theoretical and practical training, the syllabus also includes a Master’s Graduation Assignment (MGA).
