Admission

In the event that the School cannot give face-to-face entrance exams, online exams will be offered. The Student Information and Orientation Service of the School will contact pre-registered students to inform them and give them the corresponding instructions.

Given the social and economic impact of the pandemic caused by COVID-19, and exceptionally for the academic year 2020-2021, Blanquerna-URL will make a reduction in the percentage corresponding to the first tuition payment, which consists of 35% rather than the usual 50% of the year's enrollment fees. Like every year, the 9-month installment system will be used to pay the rest of the year's tuition fees. 

To gain admission into an official Master’s degree program, applicants must hold an official degree from a Spanish university or another degree issued by a higher education institution within the European Higher Education Area which in the issuing country authorizes the holder of this degree to pursue a Master’s degree.

Likewise, holders of Bachelor’s degrees from outside the European Higher Education Area may gain admission to Master’s degree programs without the need to have their degrees officially approved as long as the university can beforehand accredit a level of training equivalent to the corresponding Spanish official university degrees which in the issuing country authorize the holder of this degree to pursue a postgraduate degree. Admission by this means in no way entails approval of the previous degree or its recognition for purposes other than pursuing a Master’s degree.

In some individual cases, it is possible that access will be given to non-graduate students who, thanks to their professional or personal career, we consider to be in a position to follow the courses. In this case, the title that these students will receive will be a university extension diploma.

Selection process

In the selection process of students, the following will be taken into account:

  • School record
  • Personal Interview
  • Work experience

Individuals interested in taking a Master's Degree will be interviewed by the Academic Director or Coordinator of the Master’s program.

Application Process

The process has two phases:

  • Application: You can complete the application online. Once registered, you will receive a corresponding receipt with the information and application code (CIB).
  • Enrollment: this implies the acceptance of an assigned place.

Required documentation:

  • Certified photocopy of the degree certificate that provides access to the course or of the receipt of a request for such.
  • The official academic certificate (related to the subjects taken on the course).
  • 1 passport size photo.
  • Bank account number for automatic withdrawals (if paying in installments)
