Direct access to Bachelor´s degree by change of studies

Transfer from another university and/or an official Spanish degree

Students who wish to transfer from another university and/or an official Spanish degree, if they obtain recognition of at least 30 ECTS credits, may apply for direct admission to a school or degree without having to gain a place via the pre-enrolment process.

Previously to that, they must submit a recognition study request, if they meet the criteria specified below:

 

The following students are entitled to apply for admission via this procedure
  • Students who are enrolled in a bachelor’s degree and would like to continue the same degree at another school or another university
  • Students who are enrolled in a bachelor’s degree and would like to transfer to a different degree at the same school, another school or another university.
  • Students who were enrolled in but did not complete a phased out degree and who would like to gain admission to a bachelor’s degree at the same school, another school or another university. Students seeking admission to the bachelor’s degree that is replacing the one  phased out (or to a later curriculum for the same bachelor’s degree) should not apply via this route.

Admission requirements
  • Students must obtain recognition of at least 30 ECTS credits for compulsory subjects of the degree in which they wish to enrol. Credits corresponding to the bachelor’s thesis will not be recognised.
  • Students transferring from another degree at the UPC must have met the minimum academic progress requirements on the degree from which they wish to transfer

The following students are not entitled to apply for admission via this procedure
  • Students who are enrolled in a bachelor’s degree at the UPC and have completed the entire degree with the exception of the bachelor’s thesis.
  • Students who are enrolled at other public Spanish universities or have taken degrees under earlier regulations who, if admitted, would require fewer than 60 ECTS credits to complete a bachelor’s degree at the UPC.
  • Students who have completed a bachelor’s degree and are entitled to apply for the degree certificate, because when students are admitted to a bachelor’s degree via transfer from another university and/or an official Spanish degree their original academic record is closed.
  • Students who wish to study two degrees simultaneously
  • Students who have not obtained a minimum of 30 recognized ECTS credits.

Students who do not meet these requirements must apply for a place via the university pre-enrolment process (only for Spanish students)

Students who have studied at foreign universities

Royal Decree 967/2014 establishes that Spanish universities are responsible for partial validation of foreign degrees as partially equivalent to Spanish university degrees.

In addition, Royal Decree 412/2014 establishes that these applications to direct admission must be admitted as long as interested parties have not had their qualifications, diplomas or degrees homologated or declared equivalent in Spain.

In the case of foreign degrees that qualify holders to practise regulated professions, they may apply for homologation to the corresponding official Spanish university degree or validation, but they can not apply for both at the same time.

If students want to apply for direct admission to a bachelor´s degree program at the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering, previously to that, they must submit a recognition study request.

The procedure for admission to the University depends on the number of credits validated:

Admission directly at the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering
  • Validation of a minimum of 30 ECTS credits corresponding to compulsory subjects of the degree they want to access. The Fiinal Thesis will not be validated under any circumstances.
  • These students cannot do the pre-enrolment process.
  • These students must apply for admission directly at the Barcelona School of Civil Engineering.
Admission to the studies with university pre-enrolment process -through change of studies- 
  • Validation of fewer than 30 ECTS credits
  • These students must follow the university pre-enrolment change of studies process and provide a proof that they have filed a request for validation with the school at which they wish to continue studying. Such a request may only be filed for the school granting the validation.
Admission to the studies with university pre-enrolment process -through general process-
  • Students who do not receive recognition for any credits can access university studies through the university pre-enrolment general process. Previously they must have final official recognition of the upper secondary school (high school) certificate and have to be passed the entrance exams for foreign students by UNEDassis.
