In order to register, you need to apply for the MA and be accepted in one of its branches/pathways at one of its Admission periods (preinscripció, in Catalan). During the Admission period the Academic Committee will assess the candidate's transcript along with their motivation letter (see complete documentation required below) and rank the applications. The MA has 40 positions available. You do not need to have finished your BA degree in order to apply for admission. You will need to present your legal BA title once you are admitted and you begin the "Registration" process.
International students (specially, non-EU) are advised to apply in the first period of admission (see below) due to long time that getting your BA tittle legalized and your VISA processing can take. Take into account that, in order to register, once you are accepted, you will need to present in-person or send by certified mail your Hague Apostilled tittle, your official translation or your legalised tittle before the university closes in August.
- A degree issued by a higher education institution within the framework of the European Higher Education Area that authorizes the holder to access university master's degree courses in the country of issue (e.g. Spain, grado) or a qualification outside the framework of the European Higher Education Area but in this case you must provide a statement of equivalence (legalization process). Be aware that if you have a 3-year BA degree you can enroll the MA, but you will not be able to apply for a PhD directly after the program. In order to enroll a PhD, you must have 4 years of university education (i.e. 300 credits ECTS).
- If your degree was not taught in English, you will need an English certificate.
In order to apply for the master program students must first complete the pre-registration form available online at the Faculty's page. Once in that page, click on PREREGISTER/REGISTER and scroll down to find the REGISTER FORM.
Together with the on-line form, students must submit the documentation [see below].
IN CASE YOU EXPERIENCE ANY ISSUE UPLOADING YOUR DOCUMENTS WITH THE ONLINE APPLICATION FORM, SEND THESE DOCUMENTS TO email@example.com
Please note that this is for admission purposes only. If you are admitted and wish to enrol, you will need to present your original BA title (among others) in person at the Secretaria (firstname.lastname@example.org) [Old UB students do not need to do that].
