Procediment d'admissió amb estudis estrangers no homologats

What's this?

 This is a call to anyone with some kind of non-Spanish studies who wishes to apply for admission to a study programme at the UIB.

A specific number of places are opened for each study programme. Priority for filling the places is predefined, and if any places are left vacant, there will be a second call for applications.


Who can participate?

Students who have taken some foreign university studies or have completed a university degree, but have not had these studies officially recognized in Spain, and who to start a new study programme at the UIB and have at least 30 ECTS credits. 

Distribution of seats

The number of places offered to non-Spanish students with non-recognized studies should be an additional 2 percent (minimum) of the number of places offered during the general application period of the previous year. During the first year of a new undergraduate degree programme, no such places will be offered during the general application period. The executive council must approve the aforementioned increases.

Unfilled places that were reserved for students with non-recognized studies will be filled by students wishing to change study programmes during the same application period, if there is a waiting list, and vice versa.

Exceptionally, the head of a faculty or the director of a school may choose to admit all of those who applied to change study programmes or those who have completed at least 120 credits of a non-recognized study programme, even if there are no places available. This, as long as human, physical, and material resources allow it.

Order of admission

 Applicants who meet all requirements and who have completed at least some foreign studies will be selected as follows:

· First, students who have completed studies similar to or included in the study programme that they wish to access, and then the rest of students

· Within each of these two groups, applicants will be ordered and admitted based on their academic transcript average (adapted to a scale from 5 to 10 points in accordance with the corresponding tables).  


Documentation required for admission:

· DNI/passport/NIE.

· Academic transcript with your average grade (legalized through an appropriate diplomatic channel if the university is not in the EU). Information on legalizations can be found on the webpage of the appropriate government ministry.

· An application to have the average grade from your academic transcript converted into the Spanish grading system. This process must be carried out through the Ministry of Education Culture and Sport, here.

· Syllabi from the subjects that you have passed.

Once enrolled, the candidate will be a UIB student.
