Admitted students will have 5 working days to formally reserve a place on their course starting from the date of receipt of the message informing them of their admittance, by making a payment of 20% of the total cost of the course.
If the admitted students do not complete the reservation within the stipulated period, then they will lose the right to a place, which will then be awarded to the next candidate on the waiting list, as set out in the selection process.
Once the 20% enrolment payment has been made, UIC Barcelona is committed to reserving a place on the course, and this place cannot be filled by any other student.
UIC Barcelona will return the full amount of the reservation fee to those applicants who do not obtain a pass in the University entrance examinations (PAU), provided this was a prerequisite for access to the course for which a place was reserved for the student. Additionally, the UIC will return the full amount of the reservation fee to those applicants who, during the June exam period, do not fulfil the legal requirements for other forms of academic access to university.
Once the place has been reserved, if the student rejects it for reasons other than those set out in the preceding paragraph, the student will lose the amount paid as it will then be used to compensate for damages and losses.
The candidate must provide the full tuition fees by the deadlines set out by UIC Barcelona. Otherwise, once admitted, the student will be deemed to have rejected their place, as stated in the previous paragraph.
If the candidate has provided the full tuition fee amount and then rejects the place, then the following actions will be taken:
a) If he or she does so before the beginning of the academic year then he or she will have the right to apply for 80% of the amount paid to be returned.
b) If he or she does so once the course has begun, always before the 31st of December, then he or she will have the right to apply for 20% of the total enrolment fee to be returned, the rest will be used by UIC Barcelona as compensation for damages and losses.
If the student has expressed the intention to begin his or her studies in the following academic year, then UIC Barcelona will be able to freeze the amount paid so far, and then the remainder of the fees will be updated accordingly.
If for any reason there is no place available for a university student who has passed the full admission process, met the legal access requirements and paid the enrolment deposit by the stipulated deadline, then UIC Barcelona agrees to refund twice the amount paid by the student as a down payment.
What is stated in a and b also applies to degree students in 2nd year and above who retract their enrolment in order to transfer to another course or for any other reason.
