Admission process | CEU UCH

The 2023/24 admission process for international applicants is now open! Currently, we don't accept more requests for the Spanish taught degree in Veterinary Medicine. In case of re-openning admissions, it will be announced here.

If you have already decided that our University is the perfect match for you, congratulations!

From now on, it is our duty to make your journey as smooth and easy as possible. To ensure a successful application, we invite you to read carefully the information below and to follow the steps of our admission process. If you need assistance, you can reach out to us at any moment by sending us an e-mail to international@uchceu.es

But before taking any step forward, please go through these three items:

  • Have you followed the Spanish Education System during your studies abroad? Or maybe you have studied your secondary education in Spain? In both cases, regardless of your nationality, you will need to follow the admission process for Spanish candidates.
  • Access here all the information regarding the admission process for Medicina (Spanish) and Medicine (English/Spanish).
  • Are you hesitant about the academic documentation you need to apply? Check out the documentation required depending on your previous studies.

1. Admission form

To start the admission process, you need to complete an online form, indicating the following information:

  • Your personal information, so we can get in touch with you
  • The degree you wish to study at CEU Valencia
  • If you are applying as a first-year or a transfer student (in this case, you need to know that we don’t accept applications from transfer candidates in some degrees)

As you fill in the application form, you will have the opportunity to attach and upload the documentation we need to verify your eligibility regarding our academic requirements. We recommend that you only upload the requested documents. Please make sure that all the documents needed have been uploaded to the platform at least 2 days before your admission interview.

Which documents do you need to send us if you are a first-year student?

  • Scanned copy of ID card or passport
  • Scanned copies of all High School transcript of records
  • Scanned High School final diploma, if you already have it
  • Photo (ID format)
  • Cover letter

Which documents do you need to send us if you are a transfer student?

  • Scanned copy of ID card or passport
  • Scanned copies of all the detailed study programs of the subjects you want to validate
  • Scanned Transcript of Records
  • Photo (ID format)

Make sure to have all your academic documentation combined in a single, optimized file.

Once the admission form has been filled in, you will receive an e-mail with the instructions you need to follow.

2. Future Student Intranet

You can access your intranet by clicking here. Your login and password will be sent to you by email right after filling out the form.

In this intranet you will find relevant information concerning your application and its current status. You can also modify your personal details, upload new documents, change your interview appointment or download your admission letter once you have been accepted.

If you haven’t received the username and password needed to access your intranet, please go through the information you have entered once again or contact us at international@uchceu.es

3. Personal Interview

Once you have completed the admission form, you will be able to choose a date and time for a personal interview. This interview, together with your academic records and the result of the language test will determine your eligibility as a future student of CEU Valencia.

The admission interview, which will be carried out by a member of the International Relations Office, will be done via Microsoft Teams.

Your application will then be thoroughly evaluated by our International Admissions Commission and 24-48 hours after your interview and/or language test you will receive the result by e-mail.

If you are applying for a place in our degree in Medicina, our bilingual degree in Medicine or the bilingual degree in Médecine Vétérinaire (French/Spanish), you won’t be able to freely choose a date and time for your personal interview. In these cases, it will be a member of the Faculty concerned who will activate the option.

If you wish to apply to one of our degrees as a transfer student, your personal advisor will activate the interview calendar only once all the needed academic documentation has been received.

4. Language level test

We offer a wide range of degrees in different languages, some of them bilingual. Make sure to visit our website and check the teaching language(s) of the degree you are interested in!

If you wish to study a degree where the first year is taught in a language different to your native tongue, you will be asked to send us a copy of an official language certificate or take the language level test that you will find in your intranet.

5. Application Status

Once your application has been evaluated, we will get in touch with you to inform you that:

  • You have been selected and there is a place available for you. In this case you will receive an admission letter including the instructions for the place reservation.
  • You are on a waiting list for a place. As soon as there is a place available, you will be informed by e-mail.
  • You have not been selected.

Successful candidates will be asked to settle an amount for place reservation, which will be indicated in the admission letter.

6. Place reservation and registration

Once you have been admitted, you will receive your admission letter by e-mail.

Be careful! If you don't settle the payment before the due date, your application will be dismissed.
