Admission process

1. Form

In order to apply for admission, you must fill out a simple online form indicating the course you are interested in studying.

In case of doubt, do not hesitate to contact our Information service for Nuevo Alumno on the following telephone: +34 96 136 90 09.

The required initial documentation must be attached to this form, in digital format:

  • Photocopy of DNI, passport or equivalent.
  • Photocopy of the highest-level academic document in possession.

Once the application for admission is registered, the coordinator or person in charge of the program may contact you to assess your application.

REMARK: As soon as you complete the admission application form, you will receive a username and password in your email to access your INTRANET FOR NEW POSTGRADUATE STUDENTS, a personal space from which you can check the status of your application, as well as carry out different procedures related to your admission process, update data and download all related forms.

2. Reservation fee

Once the application has been processed, except for special circumstances, you will receive a notification via email and on the future student's intranet. In said notification, three cases are possible:

  • That you have been selected and there is a place available. In this case, the notification will indicate the instructions for reserving it.
  • That you have entered the waiting list to access the program. In this case, you will be informed of the next steps to follow.
  • That you have not been selected due to the lack of available places and availability forecast, or for reasons related to the evaluation that has been made of the application.

If you have been selected, you can formalize your reservation. You can do it in one of two ways:

  • Printing the receipt of the reservation and paying it in the indicated entities (the payment takes 24 hours to become effective). It is also convenient to know the University regulations for enrollment and permanence.
  • Paying it by credit card (immediate payment).

The payment of the pre-enrollment is essential for the reservation to be effective and thus be able to request an enrollment appointment that will be formalized at the General Secretary's Office.

3. Enrollment

Once the place reservation has been paid and when the degree registration period opens, you can formalize the enrollment.

You will receive an email from the General Secretary's Office with the steps to follow and the documentation that you must provide.

Enrollment, as a general rule, can be done in person and/or by post. If you want to do it in person, you can choose the day and time through the New Student Intranet.

The registration documentation can be downloaded from the New Student Intranet too. There you can check the necessary documentation in each case:

Students from educational systems of the European Higher Education Area

  • Original diploma that gives you access to graduate studies. If the enrollment is in person, we will make a photocopy of the original document and you can take it back to you. If the registration is done by post you should NOT send the original under any circumstances. It will be necessary to send a certified copy of it.
  • If you do not have the original diploma, you can obtain proof of your university degree through the Ministry of Education, and send the document by email to [email protected] (ONLY valid for students who have completed a Spanish degree).
  • Document accepting the academic and economic regulations governing postgraduate studies (you must sign this document). You can check these regulations on the University's website and on its intranet.

In case of doubt regarding the documentation to be provided, you can contact the General Secretary's Office by email [email protected] or by phone +34 96 136 90 15.

Students from educational systems outside the European Higher Education Area

For students from educational systems outside the European Higher Education Area, if they cannot provide a necessary document at the time of enrollment, the following shall apply:

  • The student will be able to register in the program, but not enroll, and participate in the development of the same in an ordinary way.
  • The student will have a period equivalent to 50% of the duration of the program to provide the necessary documentation (therefore, if the program lasts 8 months, they will have 4 additional months to provide the documentation). Within that period, at the time the documentation is provided, the student will be officially enrolled.
  • If after the additional period the required documentation has not been provided, CEU Cardenal Herrera University reserves the right to modify the student's enrollment conditions, and even cancel it for the purposes of issuing the corresponding degree.
  • In no case will any academic certificate be issued for students who have not enrolled in the University. In the same way, the academic activity that they have been able to carry out will have no official value if they ultimately do not enroll.
