  • Professional CV.

Reservation and enrolment

Once through the admission process, the student admitted must pay 20% of the total price of the Master's Degree to reserve a place, after receiving the official admission letter. Once enrolment is completed, the student must pay the remaining 80% for the first year in one instalment.

At the end of the first academic year, the student will receive an enrolment form corresponding to the second year, and must make the payment by the stipulated deadline.

Reservation

Those who have been accepted on the postgraduate will receive an admission letter, subject to payment to reserve a place.

A place must be reserved by paying 20% of the total amount for the first year into a La Caixa bank account, within 15 calendar days from receipt of the admission notification.

Once a place is formally reserved as stated, if a person does not meet the postgraduate admission requirements in accordance with the national or autonomous community legislation in force at any time or does not have the qualification required, or if the postgraduate is not formalised due to low enrolment, the UIC will return the amount paid to reserve the place in full.

If the student voluntarily withdraws from the postgraduate for any reason, the UIC will retain in full the sum received to reserve the place, with no reimbursement obligation, as compensation for the damage and loss caused.

If the student does not follow up the place reserved, it will be understood that they are withdrawing, and UIC may then cancel and void the application made.

Enrolment

During the enrolment period, the persons admitted and who have reserved a place will be notified once all places are filled. Once official enrolment is completed, the student will have 15 natural days to pay the rest of the enrolment cost in a single payment
