1| What does it mean to be a visiting student at UPF?
To be a visiting student at UPF means to be a student taking a number of subjects, as part of a Bachelor Degree or a Master Programme without forming part of an official exchange programme in which UPF is taking part. There is not a minimum number of credits required.

||Student Card fee|
In addition, those visiting students under 28 will have to pay € 1.12 as a mandatory accident insurance.
Any student applying for admission to a UPF's bachelor degree as a visiting student must already be registered at his/her university of origin at the same level of studies as the courses he/she wishes to follow at Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Please bear in mind that if you want to enrol in subjects from diferent studies you have to do one application process for each (this means that you have to send us as many student application materials as studies you want to be accepted in).
Any student applying for admission to UPF as a visiting student at a Master level must fulfill the requirements of the Master you are applying. Check the specific requirements of each Master Programme open to visiting students (once inside the Master's webpage click on the "Admission" link). Please note that not all UPF Master Programmes are open to visiting students:
3| Which are the procedures to register as a visiting student?
On being admitted, the visiting student must formally register for the courses he/she wishes to take from the Faculty, School or Master Programme to which he/she has been admitted. This process must be completed within the timeframe set for students on official exchange for undergraduate students and the week before the term begins for postgraduate students. Successful registration will depend on the availability of places on the courses applied for.
