Undergraduate Admission Medicine | CEU UCH

PLEASE NOTE: For questions about possible places on the degree for 2022-23, please contact the information service for prospective students . The admission process for 2023-24 will begin on the following dates:

  • Spanish students: January 2023 (to be confirmed)
  • International students: You can read all the information in this section and begin the process here. International students cannot transfer to this degree.

Applicants who have already begun studies in Medicine at another university (whether in Spain or abroad) must apply for a transfer. As part of a specific group for admissions, such persons must apply for the places available for such transfers, which are treated separately from those available to the general admission group.

If, at any stage of the process, the University becomes aware that an applicant does not meet the admission requirements corresponding to the admission group they are applying for, then this application will be rejected, regardless of the stage of the process at which this occurs and/or any communications the applicant may have received, even if these suggest that a place at the University has been confirmed. No applicant will be allowed, once the admission process has begun, to change from the general admission group to the transfer group, nor vice versa. Therefore, if a request for a change in admission group is received, whether or not the applicant claims an inadvertent error or some other circumstance has occurred, then the applicant will automatically be removed from the admissions process, regardless of the stage concerned. If such a request for change in admission group occurs after the applicant is enrolled, and therefore the corresponding documentation is submitted after the act of enrolment, then this student will be expelled from the degree, on the grounds of having submitted misleading information regarding his or her academic situation and of having acted in bad faith with regard to the documentation supplied to support his or her application. He or she will consequently lose any right acquired during the admission process or after enrolment.
