Studies commenced abroad


Information regarding the application process for students who have only partially completed higher education studies abroad or do not have official recognition of higher education studies from a Spanish university:

Application Period: from April 1st to June 30th

Place: Faculties’ Student Offices


  • If there were any vacancies in the studies in which the student requested the validation, they will need to have at least 30 ECTS recognized by UCM to be admitted.

  • In case there were more applications than available placements, the assessment of student’s academic records would be the prevailing criteria to be admitted.

  • Preference will be given to those students who have already started an equivalent degree to enable the performance of professional activities regulated in Spain and linked to Health Sciences.

The validation involves admission to the requested studies but it will be invalidated in case the student does not enroll in the current or following academic year. Exceptionally, Validation Advisory Commission could estimate the reasons which prevented the enrollment and agree, if appropriate.
