The Antonio de Nebrija University, in addition to meeting the requirements for accessing undergraduate studies in accordance with current legislation, requires passing its own admission tests, both for undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.
During the academic years 2014/2015, 2015/2016 and 2016/2017, and as established in RD 412/2014, in regards to students who have obtained a Baccalaureate degree, Nebrija University will respect the provisions of Article 13 of RD 1892/2008 and its subsequent modifications on passing the university entrance exam:
1. Access to Spanish universities, both public and private, to study the teachings that lead to obtaining different official university Bachelor's Degrees valid throughout the national territory, will require, in general, passing the exam referred to in Article 38 of Organic Law 2/2006, of May 3, on Education, which is regulated by this royal decree, regardless of the other cases provided for in Article 3 of this royal decree.
Students who hold degrees of Senior Technical Officer in Vocational Training, Senior Technical Officer in Plastic Arts and Design, or of Senior Technical Officer in Sports, as well as students from foreign education systems and those who hold a European Baccalaureate degree or International Baccalaureate Diploma, may access Nebrija University only after passing the University's own entrance tests, without it being necessary to pass the University Entrance Exam (PAU).
Starting in the 2017/2018 academic year, all students who meet the legally established access requirements will be able to access Bachelor's degree studies after passing the University's own entrance tests. Students who are in any of the following academic situations may apply for admission to the first year of a degree:
On the other hand, students who have taken university studies at another Spanish or foreign university and want to continue them at the Antonio de Nebrija University, or want to start other studies at this University, can request admission to academic periods other than first year. Students must submit the application form for admission to the University along with the required documentation. Submitting the admission application, together with the form to choose the date to take the admission tests, is done in person during a visit to the University or is sent by post. Likewise, the admission procedure can be started by filling out the online admission form.
The Admissions and Promotion Department will confirm to the candidate that it received the printed or online application and will call them for the admission tests. On the day of the test, the candidate must submit, if he/she has not done so in advance, the following documentation:
All students who wish to take their university degree at the Antonio de Nebrija University must pass an admission process consisting of:
The Academic Coordinator of the Bachelor's Degree in International Relations will prepare the admission test. It consists of ten questions and solving a practical case on a current national or international issue. In this configuration, it is essential to keep in mind all the national and international legal and economic news in order to reflect them in the test, as well as knowing the interests and expectations of future students.
The test periods are as follows:
These tests can be taken in Madrid or in the various provinces. In general, these tests are taken in person.
In Madrid, the tests are taken at La Berzosa Campus and the Dehesa de la Villa Campus. The schedule is set as follows:
Candidates can take the tests on both campuses interchangeably, regardless of where the degree for which they are applying is taught.
In provinces other than Madrid, the Promotion and Admissions Department travels to the cities in which the department has previously carried out, throughout the academic year, counseling sessions regarding Nebrija in different Secondary Education Centers. These Admission Tests consist of a first round in the early call and a second round in the ordinary call, and since they are taken in person, the identity of the candidate must be proved by presenting their ID. These tests are accompanied by an Information Session for parents, which is conducted by one of the academic advisors of the Department.
All the documents submitted by the student, together with the results of the Admission Tests, are evaluated by the Admissions Commission, made up of the Director of the Promotion and Admissions department, the Director of the Registrar's Office and the Coordinator of the degree. In said Commission, they assess whether the documents are administratively correct and whether the candidate's profile conforms to the degree's admission profile.
In addition to meeting the established access criteria, the Admissions Commission will accept or not accept the admission of a student taking into account the aforementioned admission criteria.
At the beginning of each academic year, the academic coordinators are in charge of updating the specific tests of each degree in order to guarantee that the interested candidates fit the profile. The results of the admission tests are communicated in writing and/or by telephone to each candidate within a period of approximately 3 to 5 days.
Once the candidates' admission has been communicated, they must reserve their place. This economic pre-enrollment guarantees the candidate's place at the University.
Pre-enrolled candidates who wish to formalize their academic enrollment at the University must, within the indicated deadlines, follow these steps:

The main objective is that students obtain the best out of themselves through the development and empowerment of their personal skills and resources, through personal self-knowledge.
In addition, some of the professional skills that are worked within the three seminars are those related to interpersonal skills and active communication and negotiation skills, essential for our students to know how to convey ideas, argue, give information and opinions in an appropriate, clear and convincing way.
Other aspects such as team work, conflict resolution and project management capacity are dealt with within what will be their work performance.
In the third block, skills aimed at increasing the employability of the student are worked on. It includes working with tools and techniques for job search, and performing tasks that achieve a greater use of personal skills in the student.
For all of this, we have experts currently active in the selection of people, professionals dedicated to personal and professional training and professionals dedicated to the world of communication and the arts.
In this way, and in a complementary way to their specific education, we help students create a differentiating pattern in the social and business environment in which they will be immersed when they finish their studies.
