The basic requirements for apply for admission to the master's degree are those established by art. 16 and 17 of RD 1393/2007, amended by Royal Decree 861/2010, of 2 July. They establish:
Article 16. Admission to official Master's degree courses
1. Admission to official master's degree courses shall require the possession of an official Spanish university degree or another degree issued by a higher education institution belonging to another member state of the European Higher Education Area that entitles the holder to access master's degree courses in that country.
2. Likewise, graduates from educational systems outside the European Higher Education Area may be admitted without the need to have their degrees recognised, subject to verification by the University that they accredit a level of training equivalent to the corresponding official Spanish university degrees and that they are recognised in the country issuing the degree for access to postgraduate studies. Access by this route will not imply, under any circumstances, the homologation of the previous degree held by the interested party, nor its recognition for purposes other than that of studying for the Master's degree.
Article 17. Admission to official Master's Degree courses
1. Students may be admitted to a Master's degree in accordance with the specific requirements and merit assessment criteria which, where applicable, are specific to the Master's degree or established by the university.
2. The University will include the procedures and requirements for admission to the Study program, which may include complementary courses in certain disciplines, depending on the previous training accredited by the student. These complementary courses may form part of the Master's degree, provided that the total number of credits to be taken does not exceed 120.
In any case, whether or not they form part of the Master's degree, the credits corresponding to the training complements will be considered as Master's level credits for the purposes of public prices and the awarding of grants and study aids.
3. These systems and procedures shall include, in the case of students with specific educational needs arising from disability, appropriate support and counselling services, which shall assess the need for possible curricular adaptations, pathways or alternative studies.
4. Admission shall not imply, under any circumstances, any modification of the academic and, where appropriate, professional effects corresponding to the previous qualification held by the interested party, nor its recognition for purposes other than that of studying for a Master's degree.
