Registration and enrollment

To access the selection process for any of the master’s degrees offered by the ESMUC, whether official or own, you must pre-register online. At the time of carrying it out, the amount of € 30 must be paid for the service of its processing. If you request pre-registration for more than one program, you will have to pay € 30 for each one. These amounts will only be refundable if, once the applications have been accepted, Esmuc withdraws the course.

You will find the links for pre-enrolment on the pages of each master’s degree.
Check the available course offerings.

Once the payment has been made, Esmuc will contact the applicant to request the documentation required for the admission process and a digital copy of the degree that gives access to the studies. In accordance with the provisions of Article 15 of Royal Decree 1614/2009, of 26 October, students may be admitted to the master’s degree if they meet the specific requirements and criteria for assessing the merits of the master’s degree.

ESMUC will communicate the resolution of the application for acceptance the week after the end of each registration period.
