How do I access the Spanish University?

"The allocation of places will be made on the basis of the grade of admission to university education obtained by the student."

Boletín Oficial del Estado (https://boe.es/)

There are no reservation places for VET and Bachiller students. It is the admission note that determines the order.

Admission Note from Bachiller: 60% of the average grade of the academic record + 40% of the compulsory phase of the PAU + (the two best grades of the voluntary phase of the PAU x weighting coefficients of the University you want to attend)

Admission note from VET: average grade of the academic record + (the two best grades of the voluntary phase of the PAU x weighting coefficients of the University you want to attend).

Let's look at an example: 

  • Bachiller average: 7.5.  60 % would be 4,5
  • Mandatory phase PAU (C+I+H+LC+Tro1): (7+8+6+7+7) / 5 = 7. 40% would be 2.8
  • Total:  4,5 + 2,8 = 7,3
  • Voluntary Phase PAU (Tro2 x CP) + (Tro3 x CP): (7 x 0.2) + (8 x 0.2) = 1.4 + 1.6 = 3.0
  • Admission Note: 7.3 + 3.0 = 10.3

C.- Spanish, I.- English, H.- History, LC.- Co-official language, Tro1.- Trunk Option subject linked to the modality (weighting also in the voluntary phase), Tro2 and Tro3.- Trunk Option subjects chosen for the voluntary phase, CP.- Weighting coefficients.

Remember that cutting notes range from 5.00 to 14.00.

Very important

This information is subject to change and must be verified by the Education Department of each Autonomous Community.

What University Degrees are there?

If you want to know what Degrees exist and where they can be studied, consult the website of the Ministry, the Conference of Rectors or the University you are interested in.

For example:  U. de Valencia, U. Politécnica de Valencia, U. del País Vasco, U. Complutense de Madrid, U. Autónoma de Madrid, U. de Sevilla, U. Autónoma de Barcelona, U. Politécnica de Catalunya, U. de Salamanca,...

Another option are online (UOC) or distance (UNED) universities.

What note do I need?

In order to be informed about the Cutoff Marks and to know the novelties about Degrees that are implemented every year, we recommend using as sources of information the official websites of the Universities.

How do I pre-register?

Think well about order, it's fundamental, and follow these tips:

  • Always start with the one you really want even if you don't get the mark. Take a good look at how many colleges are taught, where they are and whether they are public or private.
  • As a second option, decide if you prefer to apply for a degree that allows you to do a similar job or if you prefer to apply for another degree from which you can access a common Master with your first option.
  • Keep in mind the possibility of going to study outside your university district, for this you have to pre-enroll directly in another university.
  • Inform yourself well about the actual functioning of the waiting lists in each Faculty.
