Students are entitled to submit one application form only, indicating (in descending order of preference) the degree programmes for which they wish to apply. Students may include a maximum of five options, or ten if applying for the same programme in different universities.
Dates for each registration period will be determined by the CIUG and announced via NERTA. Students who fail to register by the appointed deadline will lose the place they have been offered.
Admission procedures and criteria:
An official registration calendar for UDC undergraduate and Master’s programmes is determined each year by the university commission responsible, and runs from July to October. As soon as the calendar is approved (some time in May), candidates will be able to access the information on the CIUG website. In the meantime, students may find it helpful to consult the registration calendar for the current academic year (available on the SAPE student advice and support section of the main UDC website), as an indication of what to expect.
For undergraduate programmes with a capped number of places, candidates in Galicia who have completed their secondary education are required to sit the University Entrance Examination coordinated by the Galician Universities Commission (CIUG), a mixed board comprising representatives from the Xunta de Galicia (Galician regional government) and the three Galician universities. Examination sessions are held in June and September each year. Information on entry procedures and requirements is available on the CIUG website or the SAPE student portal.
There is a system of aids and scholarships for students in need. The different criteria, application procedures and deadlines depend on the body that convenes (own, regional and state) and the type of aid. You can consult the following links:
