MA program 2023-24: Admission process open

Fri, 17/02/2023

We are glad to announce that the Admission process for next year's MA program is now open.

The first admissions period will close on April 16th 2023. The notification of resolutions will take place before May 7th. A second period of admissions will open on April 19th until June 4th, resolutions being notified before June 20th.

The required documentation to apply for the MA program is the following:

Documentation for admission

  1. an undergraduate transcript or list of courses completed for your degree (or degrees), with grades earned (specifying the maximum possible grade in each case), in either Catalan, Spanish or English. Undergraduate students not yet having completed their degree at the time of application might be provisionally admitted, but they must have satisfactorily completed the degree for final enrollment. NB: for the final registration, an official Spanish or Catalan translation will be required, if the original certificate is not in English, Spanish or Catalan.
  2. a general CV in Catalan, Spanish or English.
  3. motivation letter, which must explain why the candidate is a good fit for the CCiL MA program. The letter must specify the branch (Psychology, Linguistics, Philosophy) which the student is applying for. N.B.: Selecting a branch different from the candidate's background studies might involve taking additional background courses and completing the master program in two academic years.  
  4. applicants who are not native speakers of English and whose undergraduate degree was not taught in English must submit evidence of their English language skills. This evidence can come in various forms, but should reliably indicate a minimum level of proficiency approximately equivalent to B2.2 (upper end of B2 in the Common European Frame of Reference). We will, for example, accept the following test results or certificates as evidence:
  • IELTS: 6.5 (or at least no component below 6.0)
  • TOEFL: 550 (PBT), 99 (iBT)
  • University of Cambridge First Certificate in English
  • Other generally used certificates can be valid upon request.

Remember 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 due to long time that getting your BA tittle legalized and your VISA processing can take. 

Please note that there is an application processing fee for the admission process of 30,21€.
