Masters' Degrees - Pre-enrolment and Enrolment

Pre-enrolment Procedure

Prior to pre-enrolment in a Master's Degree, each student should check that he or she meets with the entry requirements, as well as the specific criteria for admission to the Program concerned, and that he or she is in possession of the required documentation.

The responsibility for the organization of the Postgraduate Studies concerned lies exclusively with the UIMP, or in collaboration with other universities, institutions or entities via an official Agreement. Each student should consult on the website the procedure and period of pre-enrolment as set down for each kind of Studies:

  • Should it need to be undertaken via a Collaborating Institution: contact with that same entity would be required.
  • Should it need to be undertaken via the UIMP Student Administration Office: pre-enrolment should be carried out via internet by completing the online Pre-enrolment Form (Formulario de Preinscripción) available on the UIMP website.

Pre-enrolment via this online platform requires that, in addition to personal data, an indication should also be made of the Degree which facilitates access to Master's Degree Studies, the date of its being awarded, together with an average-grade transcript based on academic records.

Dates for Pre-enrolment (Academic Year 2017-2018):

  • Normal Period: from 3 April to 14 July, 2017

On the specific web-pages of each Master's Program, information is available regarding the documentation to be included as part of the application process.

Nevertheless, generally speaking, the following documents will usually be required:

    • Certification of personal academic records, or authenticated copy thereof, in which the duration of the official Study Plan in terms of the number of academic years concerned is set down, together with the courses taken, the grades obtained and the quantifiable workload each of them involves.
    • ID or passport-size photograph.
    • Curriculum Vitae, so as to facilitate the assessment of other merits appropriate to the admissions profile.
  2. Non-homologated Higher Education Qualification Certificate or one that is currently being homologated:
    • Authenticated photocopy of National ID card, in the case of Spanish citizens, or of Non-National Identity Number (NIE), in the case of foreign nationals.
    • Legalized Higher Education Qualification Certificate which ensures access to Masters' Degree studies.

    • ID or passport-size photograph.
    • Curriculum Vitae, so as to facilitate the assessment of other merits appropriate to the admissions profile.

Access to these students is subject to the Principal's approval, once the report issued by the Commission for Postgraduate Graduate Studies has been heard. In any case, the Principal's approval does not imply the homologation of the Degree concerned beyond the fact that it is held by the applicant, nor the acknowledgement of it for purposes other than that of admission to the Courses taught within the Master's Degree.

NOTE: Students with non-homologated Higher Education Qualification Certificates from universities outside Spain, or which are currently pending homologation, are required to submit duly authenticated documents, together with their corresponding translations into Spanish, should the circumstances arise.
