International students: the UPF Admissions Office may ask for a certificate, issued by the university from which you graduated, stating that your qualification entitles you to take a master's degree programme in your country of origin.

When to apply

The Admissions Office strongly encourages international applicants to apply in the first or second round at the latest to allow admitted candidates enough time to address visa issues.

Admission requierements

The admission requirements are the same for all students regardless of their citizenship or country of residence. Some programmes need proof of language level. Please check the admission requirements and language accreditation on each master's website.

Admission and visa letter 

Admission and visa letters will be sent by email once the student has been admitted and has reserved the place in the master's programme.

Document legalization 

The legalization of documents is not required for the application process. Once admitted, students who have graduated from a university of a non-EU country must legalize their documents in their country of origin before the enrolment in September.

Living in Barcelona 

Students admitted to a master's programme will receive a welcome pack by email with pre-arrival and orientation information.

You can also find useful information on the UPF website Living in Barcelona.
