We have sought a real correspondence between the proposed generic competences, with those developed in similar educational entities in other countries in the area of influence, especially in the EU. It is evident that this relationship was found in the identity between subjects taught and studied in the different educational systems and the objectives of competences that are projected. Likewise, the Benchmark Statements for Master's Degree of the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) of the United Kingdom have been consulted.
These are focused on a series of specific competences, which have been determined with the same procedure as the generic ones and, of course, starting from RD 775/2011.

Nebrija University's Master's Degree in Access to the Legal Profession is conceived so that the professors and tutors are a key piece in the program's success. For this reason, a selection of very demanding staff has been chosen to fill the teaching positions of the program, seeking a balance between academics and lawyers, so that in its majority, the faculty has the academic degree of doctor in law, but accumulates in his/her experience an average of over ten years of active professional practice.
Regarding the subjects of the professional regulatory framework and personal skills and abilities, the appointed faculty has extensive teaching experience, but especially professional experience in the field of the respective disciplines. In matters related to the different jurisdictional orders, the part with the most theoretical discipline has been defined by accredited PhD professors, and the practical cases, which are fundamental key of the educational process, are either selected among hundreds of real matters defended in all jurisdictional instances, or are designed by multidisciplinary teams under the joint supervision of an accredited PhD professor and a lawyer with over fifteen years of professional experience as an practicing lawyer.
The admission process consists of the following phases:
The following documentation must be sent by postal mail or courier to the Postgraduate Admissions Section:
Once all the documentation is received, and it is verified that the degree submitted grants access to a Master's degree, according to what is established in Arts. 15 and 16 of Royal Decree 1393/2007, the candidates take the proficiency test of the chosen program, which is the responsibility of University Development Department.
The test takes place in person in Madrid and in different Spanish cities and, additionally, it can be taken remotely, for those candidates residing outside of Spain.
The proficiency test, which aims to analyze the student's abilities to complete the Master's program, evaluates the candidate's profile and abilities, so it does not require prior preparation and allows the student to receive broader and personalized advice on their academic and professional options.
The proficiency test consists of three parts. The first is an aptitude test with which the maturity of the student is evaluated and the reasons that lead him/her to study with us are analyzed. The second is a Spanish language level test, as the case may be, for those students who cannot prove to have the required level, in which the Intermediate Level must be reached and the third is a face-to-face or telephone personal interview with the Program Coordinator or with the School Administration.
Once said proficiency test has been passed, the candidate holds a personal interview with the Program Coordinator in which he or she enrolls or with the School Administration.
2.- Upon completion of the admission tests, the Admissions Commission analyzes the results and documentation submitted by the candidate and approves or rejects the application. The candidate receives written information about their admission, about the process of formalizing their enrollment in the Program and about the final documentation that must be submitted, duly legalized.
3.- Formalizing registration and enrollment
After registration, the candidate will formalize their enrollment, selecting online the subjects and completing the required information. Throughout the process, the candidate is in permanent contact with the University Development Department and with the academic directors of the chosen Program, who will advise him/her on any questions.
The weight of the different phases is the following:
- Admission test: 25%
- Interview: 25%
- Academic Record of prior studies: 50%
