  • The different phases of pre-enrolment for the master’s degree are explained in Escuela de Posgrado

  • No, you can enrol for the master’s degree if you hold other qualifications, although you must bear in mind that your score in the pre-enrolment will be higher if you have previously studied psychology or a related discipline (e.g. social education, social work, psychopedagogy, etc.) and some of the internships offered under the master’s degree will be restricted to psychologists, although there will also be others for students who have a non-psychology background.

  • The criteria taken into account in the pre-enrolment are as follows:

    • Assessment of the qualification used to access the programme (60%)
    • Other qualifications and merits duly certified and related to the master’s degree (20%)
    • English proficiency (10%, the maximum score will be obtained for C1 or equivalent level)
    • Professional achievements related with psychosocial intervention (10%).
  • 45 students.

  • In the 2019-2020 academic year 2 students were admitted in the first phase, 40 in the second phase and 3 in the third phase. 

  • Yes. Students must attend a minimum of 80% of the lectures in the different courses.

  • No, although part of the material issued to students may be in English and some of the activities requested under the courses may be carried out in English as well.

  • Yes, the course on Current Perspectives in Psychology of Social Intervention

    The rest are optional courses provided that the ratio of courses from the Methodology Module and the Psychology of Social Intervention Module established in the regulations of the master’s degree is respected. See the academic information of the master's degree.

  • The internship centres are set out in the list below. Nonetheless, it is important to take into account that depending on your qualification you may only be able to apply for certain positions, as indicated in each case. List of centres

  • Yes, provided that the regulations of the International Postgraduate School are complied with:

    1. Students enrolled for between 24 and 41 credits, both inclusive, are considered to be part-time students.
    2. New students intending to study part-time must initially complete their enrolment with 60 ECTS credits and subsequently request this mode within the time limit established, presenting documentary certification of the reasons preventing them from studying the master’s degree full-time. The resolution of applications will be carried out by the competent body of the International Postgraduate School within 30 calendar days from the termination of the official enrolment deadline.
    3. Once the application for part-time study has been considered and the decision is favourable the interested party will be informed, indicating in the resolution the time limit for alteration of the enrolment application to reflect the credit allotment for part-time study. 
  • Yes, although in the case of some doctorate programmes (such as the Doctorate in Psychology of the UGR) students must have completed at least 12 research credits, so if you are thinking of doing the doctorate after the master’s degree the best option is to choose supervised research.

  • There are two terms (from October to December and January to March) with courses in the morning and the afternoon. There is also a compulsory course which must be completed by all students and which is only offered in the afternoon, given that the teaching staff consists of professionals working in the field of psychology outside the University. The second part of the master’s degree in which you must choose between an internship or research work requires a certain degree of flexibility of times (for example there are internships with only morning hours or only afternoon hours or with mixed morning and afternoon hours). Finally, given that the master’s degree requires full-time study, students are required to complete a considerable amount of autonomous work. It is therefore recommended that students try to concentrate their courses in a single time range.

  • Yes, although you must justify your application and it must be approved by the Academic Committee of the Master’s Degree.

  • If you have a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, Social Work, Sociology, Social Education, Psychopedagogy, Criminology, Social Anthropology, Pedagogy, Labour Studies or Occupational Therapy you will not be required to obtain more credits related with Psychology given that during your previous studies you have already completed them. However, if you have a qualification in another field you must obtain a total of at least 40 credits related with Psychology; any such courses in your qualification will count towards this total and you will need to do the additional courses necessary to fulfil this requirement. You may be admitted to the master’s degree programme without having completed these courses, but you will not receive the master’s degree until you have completed these credits.
