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 studies:
For the proposed master's degree, foreign language learning experiences, as well as intercultural training or professional experiences (bilingual qualifications, subjects in other languages, stays abroad, internships in multicultural or multilingual institutions, etc.) will be especially valued.
In addition to the legal requirements, the university requires passing the student to pass its own admission tests.
The process of admission to the Master's degree begins by sending the following documentation by post or courier to the Postgraduate Admissions Section:
Upon receiving the documentation and verifying that the degree presented grants access to the degree, as established in Arts. 15 and 16 of Royal Decree 1393/2007, candidates take the admission test for the chosen program, which is carried out by the Department of Promotion and Admissions. This test is taken in person in Madrid and in different Spanish cities and, additionally, it can also be taken remotely (online).
The online tests, of identical content to those taken in person, will be taken through the Blackboard Learn platform, which allows you to configure evaluation tests for both oral development, establishing an audiovisual connection by videoconference between the teacher and the candidate, as well as written development, using tools with editing fields to solve questions textually. Both parts of the test, oral and written, are done with the candidate connected by videoconference and after having shown his/her identity document with a photograph. This way, the teacher can verify the candidate’s identity.
The admission test, which aims to analyze the student's abilities to complete the Master's program, evaluates the profile and capabilities of the candidate, so it does not require prior preparation and allows the student to receive more comprehensive and personalized advice on their academic and professional options.
This test consists of the following parts:
Upon completion of the admission tests, the Admissions Commission, composed of those responsible for the Department itself, the General Secretary and the Department of Promotion and Admissions, analyzes the results and documentation submitted by the candidate and approves or rejects the application. The candidate receives written information about his admission, which is advanced by telephone, about the result of the admission process and about the formalization of his enrollment in the Program, the final documentation that must be submitted, duly legalized, etc.
Evaluation of the application by the Admissions Commission:
The weighting of the values obtained in criteria 2 to 8 is calculated on a maximum score of 18 points.
Once admission has been communicated, candidates 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:
This programme offers the student the possibility of designing his or her own learning itinerary according to their training needs and professional interests, always with personalised academic guidance. Its powerfully practical nature, the experience and prestige of the teaching staff, the internship agreements with SFL teaching centres from all over the world, and university extension activities, which are benchmarks in the field of SFL, favour the international employability of our graduates.
The department responsible for the internationalization of Nebrija University is the International Mobility Office, which is the main point of information and support for international students who come to study at our university, and where they can go to ask any questions regarding the university or life in Spain. In addition, the International Mobility Office organizes cultural and leisure activities, language exchanges, and other activities for students to make their stay as pleasant and fruitful as possible.
International students of the Master's Degree in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language will receive academic guidance from the Student Coordination department and the Program Director, in collaboration with the International Coordination department of the School of Languages and Education. In addition, they will be allowed to take subjects from their areas of study, as well as subjects from the Center for Hispanic Studies (Spanish language and culture classes), as complementary courses, so that they may improve their level of Spanish while they carry out their master's studies.
