What is a University Master's Degree?

A University Master's Degree (UM) is an Official Degree accredited by the Ministry of Education, valid throughout Spain, in accordance with the parameters of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA).

 

How is it different from Internal Studies?

An Internal Master's Degree offers specialised training in order to refresh professional or academic knowledge or lifelong learning, but does not have academic recognition at national level.

 

What is a qualifying Master's Degree?

Qualifying Master's Degrees allow students to practise the profession for which they studied their Degree. In the case of Spain, there are 14 professions that require a Qualifying Master's Degree in order to practise. The table above indicates the UM Degrees that qualify for regulated professions.

 

Regulated profession: professional activity for which a certain professional qualification is required (generally a university degree).

Which Master's Degrees can I access?

From the basic condition of being in possession of an official university degree, the Specific Access Profile for each UM (and the criteria for prioritisation based on this criterion when the number of applications exceeds the number of places) is regulated in the respective verification report.

Although there are ideal profiles, in general it is possible to access the UM studies offered by EINA by means of a degree in the field of Engineering and/or Architecture.

The access profiles for each UM can be checked on the University of Zaragoza website, in the section "Access and admission".

 

 

Do I need to have B1 English to access a UM at EINA?

Almost all UMs at EINA require B1 level English, or accreditation of a similar competence, as a requirement for admission or to complete studies. If you have completed the Degree that gives you access to the UM at EINA, then you already have

the level required (except for the now-extinct Degree in Engineering in Industrial Design and Product Development - Plan 271).

 

If not, you can formalise your admission and accredit it before the end of the first semester.

 

 

 

How much are the tuition fees?

The Decree regulating public enrolment fees is published in June/July. However, for reference, the enrolment prices for academic year 2020/21 can be found at: precios de matrícula correspondientes al curso 2020/21 

According to the provisions of Decree 113/2018, of 5th July, of Aragón Regional Government, on Public Prices for the provision of university academic services for academic year 2018/19, the price per credit for the first enrolment is:

    • Qualifying UMs (Architecture, Industrial Engineering and Telecommunication Engineering) and Differentiated UMs (Computer Engineering and Chemical Engineering) ……        25,83 €
    • Non-qualifying UMs (other titles) ………………………………………………       37,40 €

Estudiantes extranjeros

Do students with non-accredited foreign university degrees outside the EHEA have to take any additional steps to apply for admission?

In addition to the specific access conditions indicated for the qualifying University Master's Degrees, students with a non-accredited foreign degree, issued by a country whose educational system is outside the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), must in all cases take the following steps:

    • Present their application for access at the same time as the admission application, thus ensuring that the Commission for Postgraduate Studies at University of Zaragoza can accredit a level of training equivalent to the corresponding official Spanish degrees, and that such studies entitle them to access postgraduate studies in their country of origin.

The following amounts are to be paid for such studies: 50 per centre and 50 per degree applied for. These amounts will not be refunded under any circumstances.

      • Students whose mother tongue is not Spanish: The Master's Degree Academic Committee will determine, based on the documentation accrediting language skills, whether or not such students should be admitted on the basis of the provisions of the Master's Degree Verification Report.
      • In addition to the documentation that must be presented for access, provide certification, either from the university of origin or the competent body in the country issuing the degree, that these studies have an educational level equivalent to official Spanish degrees and allow access to official postgraduate studies in the country of origin.
      • Whenever the qualification system used in the country of origin does not match the Spanish system, provide the "Declaration of equivalence of average grade of university studies completed in foreign universities", which can be obtained through the website of the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training  (http://www.mecd.gob.es/mecd/servicios-al-ciudadano-mecd/catalogo/general/educacion/203615/ficha.html)If this is not provided, a grade of 5 points will be assigned for the purpose of scores and priority.

Are there any specific conditions for access to Master's Degree courses with foreign university studies?

Accessing UMs that qualify for regulated professions through foreign university studies requires a series of specific conditions, in accordance with the access profile in question:

 

1. Qualifying UMs that require a specific Degree (UM in Architecture):

Those interested in taking the UM should apply for access to the degree via the "Change of studies" modality, within the deadlines set each year by University of Zaragoza (Academic Year 2019/20 - Resolution pending publication: Phase 1, from 2nd to 15th May 2019. Phase 2, if there are vacancies, from 2nd to 13th September 2019).

 More information on admission due to change of studies:

 Once admitted via this route, the student should complete studies for the credits necessary to be awarded the degree.

After obtaining the degree, the student should apply for access to the UM under the same conditions as other students.

 

2. Qualifying UMs that do not require a specific degree (UM in Industrial Engineering and Telecommunication Engineering):

Graduates from foreign education systems must apply for homologation of their degree by the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport, or a declaration of equivalence to the academic level of the Degree.

 Students must submit their application for access in the same way as other students, including a copy of the accreditation card issued by the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport along with the documentation.

 The university will study the documentation provided by the applicant and will, depending on his or her previous training, establish the corresponding training complements (Degree subjects).
