The routes and requirements for admission to Master's level education are those established by Royal Decree 1393/2007 of October 29, with subsequent modifications in Royal Decree 861/2010, of July 2, which establishes the organization of official university education.
The University Program in Cognition and Emotion in Educational Contexts by the Antonio de Nebrija University may be accessed by all applicants who meet the requirements provided for in current legislation, with an associate's/bachelor's or undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education, Primary Education, Pedagogy, Psychology, Speech Therapy, Social Education, other higher graduates with a Master's Degree in Teacher Training in Secondary Education or other postgraduate degrees in Education (attention to diversity, inclusive education, specific educational needs, or equivalent degrees).
The University has a Promotion and Admissions Department, which is responsible for providing personalized information to those who request it, facilitating the admissions stages, and monitoring the candidate. This Department has specialized people for each program, trained to attend to requests for information that may arrive by e-mail, telephone or fax that are set up for this purpose and that appear in the university's advertisement. The candidate is also given the opportunity to meet with the Academic Director/Coordinator of the Master's Degree in Cognition and Emotion in Educational Contexts and the Directorate of the Department.
Candidates will have access to all the information regarding the admission process and the requirements on the University website, where they will find extensive and precise information on the Curriculum, the academic phases, requirements, selection and enrollment process, academic fees, teaching staff and the department's lines of research.
Nebrija University has accessible information systems and reception and orientation procedures for newly admitted students in order to facilitate their integration into the corresponding university degrees and, in the case of students with specific educational needs derived from disability, the University has the appropriate support and advisory services, which will assess the need for possible curricular adaptations.
As established in Article 16 of RD 1393/2007, modified by RD 861/2010, students who meet any of the following conditions may access these Master's studies:
In addition to complying with the requirements provided for in current legislation, candidates must have one of the following degrees: associate's/bachelor's or undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education, Primary Education, Pedagogy, Psychology, Speech Therapy, Social Education, other higher graduates with a Master's Degree in Teacher Training in Secondary Education, or other postgraduate degrees in Education (attention to diversity, inclusive education, specific educational needs, or equivalent degrees).
The student must provide the originals or certified copies of the submitted documentation, within a period established by the University, in order to formalize his/her enrollment. Any inaccuracy, falsity or omission of information, statement or document provided by the student in the admission period will entail the impossibility of continuing to exercise the right from the moment the University has proof of these events, and proceed to cancel the application for admission submitted and the place awarded, notwithstanding any criminal, civil or administrative responsibilities that may arise.
In order to access the official master's degrees, it is necessary to submit the following documentation:
In the event that the studies with which the pre-registration for the Master's degree is accessed are completed in a Foreign Higher Education institution, both the diploma and the academic record (grades) must be official and issued by the competent authorities, in accordance with the legal system of the country of origin.
If the number of applicants exceeds the number of places offered, the student's academic record will be taken as an admission criterion (grade average).
Therefore, anyone interested in accessing the studies of Master's Degree in Cognition and Emotion in Educational Contexts must submit, without exception, their academic record, as it will be the grade average therein that will decide their admission to the Master's degree if the number of applications exceeds the number of places offered.
Once all places are full, if there are more people interested in being admitted, they will be put on the waiting list for possible vacancies that may arise before the start of the academic year, and the same admission and selection criteria detailed for the rest of applicants in point 4 will be applied.
In addition to the evaluation of the academic merits provided by the candidate (20%), students must hold a personal interview (80%), with the Director of the Program, or with university advisers. This interview is aimed at verifying the suitability of the candidate and his/her profile regarding the degree. This is done to determine if the candidate has sufficient motivation, training and knowledge, abilities, aptitudes, communication skills, extracurricular activities and future interests necessary to be admitted as a student in the Nebrija University postgraduate programs.
Likewise, non-Spanish-speaking foreign students must take a Spanish language placement test in order to know their actual level of knowledge of the language. It will not be necessary for the candidate to take the language placement test if they submit certification that proves knowledge of the Spanish language at B2 level of the CEFR. The accreditation of this level will be validated through the official diplomas admitted by the table of certificates admitted by ACLES and/or Instituto Cervantes.
Once the student has been admitted, they will proceed to enroll, which consists of the following phases:
Candidates must reserve their place. This economic pre-enrollment guarantees the candidate's place at the University.
