Access and admission requirements

General access requirements

Access to official University Master's courses at the University of Zaragoza is achieved by meeting certain of the following requirements:

a) Having an official Spanish university degree or another Spanish Master's Degree.

b) Having an official Spanish university degree obtained under curricula previous to the current organization of university education: Bachelor, Architect, Engineer, Diploma, Technical Architect or Technical Engineer.

c) Having a foreign tertiary education qualification analogous to an official Spanish university degree or declared equivalent to a Bachelor's or Master's Degree by the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training.

d) Having a Bachelor's or Master's degree from universities or higher education institutions from a country in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), which allows access to Master's studies in that country.

  • After BREXIT, the United Kingdom remains in the EHEA.
  • When accessing a Master's degree that enables the undertaking of a regulated profession, the foreign degree must be approved or declared equivalent to the academic level of the Spanish Degree by the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training.

e) Having a foreign higher education qualification obtained from an education system outside the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) that is equivalent to the Bachelor's degree, without the need for approval or declaration of equivalence, and having obtained the corresponding resolution of "authorised access" to official University of Zaragoza Master's courses - following a check to ensure the level of training implied by this qualification - provided that the qualification allows access to postgraduate university studies in the country where it is issued.

If "authorised access" has yet to be obtained when submitting the application for admission in Stage 1 or Stage 2, the applicant must prove they have started the corresponding process; in this case, the place that may correspond will be conditional on proof that the "authorised access" has been obtained by the end of the modification period established for admission Stage 2. The time limit for modification of applications for admission submitted at Stage 3 shall be that relating to that Stage.

Failure to obtain "authorised access" in the modification period will exclude the applicant from the admission process in the corresponding Stage.

Under no circumstances does regulated access in this section mean approval or recognition of the qualification obtained previously by the applicant to be used for any purpose other than meeting the access requirements for a University Master's course at the University of Zaragoza.

  • This type of access is not valid for University Master's degrees that enable the undertaking of a regulated profession.

f) Likewise, people who are studying an official university degree in the Spanish University System [SUE] in the 2021-2022 academic year may access the courses if they have all the registered credits necessary for completion of studies on their course and have a maximum of 9 ECTS and the Final Degree Project left to complete their studies.

If there are more than 9 credits and the Final Degree Project to be completed at the time of the admission application period in Stage 1 or Stage 2, the place that may correspond to the applicant will be conditional on proving they have no more than 9 credits and the Final Degree Project to complete their studies at the end of the modification period established for admission Stage 2; in the case of applicants involved in admission Stage 3, the time limit for modification will be as per that Stage.

Failure to obtain certification in the access requirement modification period detailed here will exclude the applicant from the admission process in the corresponding Stage.

In accordance with the provisions of article 18 of Royal Decree 822/2021, no-one accessing the University Master's by this route will be able to obtain the degree if they do not already have the qualification that grants them access.

 

Specific admission requirements

In addition to meeting the general access requirements, applicants must meet the specific requirements detailed in the verification report for each Master's Degree.

Language requirements

If applying for admission to a Master's Degree taught in Spanish at the University of Zaragoza and your mother tongue is not Spanish, you must present documents attesting to sufficient knowledge of the Spanish language to follow the classes. An interview may be held to verify your Spanish language ability.

In those University Master's degrees that are taught totally or partially in languages other than Spanish, applicants must provide documents accrediting the level of knowledge of the languages required in the verification report for the Master's course.  

  • Master's Degree in Teaching:  People applying for admission to the Teaching Master's whose mother tongue is not Spanish must have knowledge of Spanish that allows them to follow classes adequately. An interview may be held to check language ability.
