How do I register at the UPCT and what are the requirements?

Application Requirements for an Undergraduate Study Program

Before registering for an undergraduate study program (bachelor´s degree), you have to translate and to validate your secondary school leaving certificate. This procedure is necessary to prove that your certificate is equivalent to the Spanish “Bachillerato”. The “Ministerio de Educación Español”, a Spanish education agency, is responsible to confirm your high school diploma.

  •  Application


The University Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED), a distance learning University, will prepare an admission test for international students. Students from the European Union or from countries that have an agreement with our University, have direct access to study here and are not obligated to take the test. Furthermore, as most classes are conducted in Spanish, you should have sufficient knowledge of the Spanish language.
