In general, the admission documentation will be submitted to the Admissions Department. The student must provide the originals or certified copies of the documentation submitted, within a period established by the University to formalize their enrollment. Any inaccuracy, falsity or omission of data, statement or document provided by the student in the period of admission, will determine the impossibility of continuing with him exercising the right from the moment the University has proof of those events, proceeding to the cancellation of the application for admission submitted and the place awarded, without prejudice to the criminal, civil or administrative responsibilities that may arise.
To access the official university master's degrees, it is necessary to submit the following documentation:
In the event that the studies used to access pre-registration to the Master's degree are completed in a Foreign Higher Education institution, both the degree 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 (average grade) will be taken as admission criteria.
Therefore, all those interested in accessing the Master's degree studies must submit, without exception, their academic transcript, as it will be the average grade in it that decides their admission to the Master's degree, in the event that the number of applications exceeds the number of places offered.
Once all places are full, in the case of having more people interested in accessing, these will remain on the waiting list in the case of possible open positions that may arise before the beginning of the academic year.
In addition to the evaluation of the academic merits provided by the candidate, students must take the following tests that are part of the admission process.

The level tests consist of a written exam with multiple-choice questions, oral and written comprehension, and use of the language. They are taken either in person or online.
It will not be necessary for the candidate to take the language positioning test if he or she delivers certification that proves the knowledge of a foreign or Spanish language at a B2 level of the CEFR. The accreditation of the level will be validated through the official degrees admitted by the table of certificates of ACLES and/or Instituto Cervantes. Valid for one year.
