The Transformational Comptencies Training Plan at CEU is made up of three practical modules, structured around key soft skills. Soft skills have become an essential part of the armoury of today's professionals. The ever-changing working environment means that the ability to adapt and relate to others effectively is more important than ever. And not only will you get the chance to develop these skills – you will have a microcredential to prove it.

Committed to your employability

Committed to your employability

Want to know more about the Transformational Competencies Training Plan?

Each module consists of four hours of in-person training sessions, during which you will agree a flexible training schedule with the instructor to suit your learning needs. This schedule will consist of a blend of practical and dynamic activities, a run-through of some theory, self-assessment exercises, peer feedback and some space for reflection.

The Transformational Competencies Training Plan sessions will take place in the first few weeks of your chosen study programme. The Plan now forms part of some of our Master's Degree programmes, and we aim to include it within all our postgraduate programmes in the coming years.

Participants attend three sessions on consecutive days, working on 6 of the 8 CEU competencies, using a modular programme:

  • Communication
  • Innovation
  • Leadership
  • Self Knowledge
  • Personal Growth
  • Teamwork

Module 1

  • Self-Knowledge. Develop competencies related to personal and professional autonomy through an appraisal of your strengths, weaknesses, expectations and aspirations.
  • Personal growth. Develop resources to improve your decision-making regarding your personal, academic and career concerns.

Module 2

  • Communication. Participate in experiences which enhance your interpersonal communication skills and ability to interact with different stakeholders in a range of academic, professional and social settings.
  • Teamwork. Receive training in how to be an effective team player and provide solutions to generate a healthy working atmosphere.

Module 3

  • Leadership. Develop your ability to communicate and to persuade in interactions with a range of stakeholders, to organize and to manage, and to solve problems, take decisions and control a budget.
  • Innovation. Develop your ability to take on board and lead social, cultural, economic, organization and technological changes, and provide a vision of how the future should be.

  • Entrepreneurship. You will be able to access training resources in this area via the student intranet. You can also undertake an end-of-degree project on an entrepreneurial theme related to your degree, while following the University's regulations.

Your employability will be one of our priorities – that is why we have more than 6000 placement agreements with companies and organizations. The right placement is the perfect way for you to experience professional practice and start your career off on the right foot.

Postgraduate programmes at CEU: why studying in Spain can open up the whole of Europe to you

19th June 1999, representatives from 29 European states

It all started in Bologna, more than 20 years ago

It all started in Bologna

On that day, 19th June 1999, 29 ministers of education from EU countries agreed to create a new dimension for university education in Europe: the European Higher Education Area.

All the major academic decisions taken from that point on by European universities have been consistent with the principles of the Bologna Declaration.

Why not

“The Bologna Declaration laid the foundations for the creation of the European Higher Education Area on the basis of certain principles (quality, mobility, diversity and competitiveness). Two of its strategic objectives are to increase employment in the European Union and to make the European higher education system attractive to students and lecturers from other parts of the world.”

A new structure for higher education

The Bologna Declaration saw a commitment from the signatories to move towards the higher education model used in English-speaking countries, a two-cycle model.

Bachelor's degree

This decision was taken to facilitate mobility for students and workers between EU countries. By organizing higher education systems in the same way:

  • Inter-university programmes become easier to organize;
  • It becomes easier for employers across the EU to understand and recognize qualifications from other EU countries.

All Spanish universities have adopted this model as a consequence of the Bologna Declaration.

In other words, “postgraduate programmes” are not a mere add-on to a standard degree, but rather a stage in which graduates can specialize and gain the skills that European employers require.

Routes into Employment

Route 1 - Master’s Degrees

If you want to apply to become a civil servant, a master’s degree will give you an advantage.

If you want to become more skilled in your field, in order to move onto more specialized positions, then a master’s degree is the logical step to take.

If you are thinking about a career in teaching or research, remember that holding a master’s degree is the key to being accepted onto doctoral programmes.

Academic careers

In Spain, master's degrees are known as másteres universitarios, and they are programmes which have been verified and certified by the Spanish government’s quality assurance agency for higher education, ANECA.

Route 2 – Other Postgraduate Programmes

We have created título propio programmes in order to address skills gaps in the job market, although these programmes have not been verified by ANECA.

Other postgraduate programmes and certificates, known as títulos propios and cursos de capacitación, can also be taken into account in civil service selection processes.

The University only offers programmes when it knows that they make our students and graduates more employable.

Our cursos de capacitación enable students to certify certain skills, allowing them, for example, to teach the Valencian language in schools.

Details regarding student fees can be found on the programme-specific section of the website.

But here are some pointers to help you understand the process.



This is paid upon admission to the university.



This is paid when the registration/enrolment period opens.



These are charged in monthly instalments to the bank account specified by the student.

Let’s use our Master’s Degree in Sports Physiotherapy as an example.
The annual fees amount to 8600 euros and there are three types of fees.




The first payment is the place reservation fee, amounting to 1700 euros.

The second payment is the registration fee. This amounts to 900 euros.

The tuition fees amount to 6000 euros, split into 8 monthly payments (750 euros each month).
