In order to gain access to our Master's programme, students must hold an official Spanish university degree or an equivalent degree issued by a higher education institution in the European Higher Education Area that entitles them to access a Master's programme in the country in which the degree was awarded.
Likewise, graduates from educational systems outside the European Higher Education Area may also be admitted without the need to have their degrees recognised, subject to verification by the UGR that (1) they accredit a level of education equivalent to the corresponding official Spanish university degree and, (2) that such degree allows access to postgraduate studies in the country of origin. Access by this route does not imply, in any case, the homologation of the previous degree, nor its recognition for purposes other than enrolling this Master's programme.
The degree in Psychology is considered to be the most suitable profile for our Master's programme. To access the Neuropsychology itinerary, this degree is strictly mandatory. For the research itinerary, candidates holding a psychology degree have high preference, candidates with related degree (medical sciences, psychopedagogy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy) have medium preference, and all other degrees have low preference.
In the selection process, the following criteria will be taken into account: grades of the academic transcript (40%), CV (20%, including grants and scholarships, internships, work experience, and courses), language skills (10%, especially English and other EU languages), professional goals (10%, including reference letters and a motivation letter), and the similarity of any previous training to the selected itinerary (20%).
A B2 language level in the language of instruction (Spanish or English) of the selected courses is required.
