Enrolment of new students

July

On July 11, 2019 will be published the allocation of places for students who have applied for admission to the university through the University Pre-enrolment in June. The enrolment of these students will be from July 15 to 18, 2019.

As soon as we receive the list of people assigned to the centre we will contact you to remind you of the registration days and invite you to the Welcome Session

The Welcome Session for new students will take place on Friday, July 12, 2019, at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., in accordance with the University Pre-enrolment calendar. It is advisable that students attend the session, since in it we will explain practical aspects about the enrolment process and it is a good opportunity to start familiarizing yourself with the centre and its operation. In addition, once the reception session is finished, a documentation verification circuit will be carried out and you will be assigned the day and time to register according to your access route.

It is important that, before receiving the assignment, you start collecting the necessary documentation for registration. In the case of students from other universities that want to recognize subjects from your previous studies, we recommend that you present your applications for recognition in advance to have them resolved on the day of registration.

September

For students applying for admission to the university in the University Pre-enrolment of September, the publication of the allocation of places will be made on September 26, 2019, while enrolment will take place on September 27, 2019.

As in the July period, as soon as we receive the list of assignments to the center, we will contact you to inform you about the registration process.

Because deadlines are tighter than in July, it is even more important that you have the necessary documentation prepared before the day of registration.

In the case of students from other universities that want to recognize subjects from your previous studies, we recommend that you submit your applications for recognition in advance to have them resolved on the day of registration.

For more information on the documentation that you must submit according to each access route, consult the Access, admission and enrolment section.

Students who receive these aids can renew them each course as long as they meet the criteria established in their bases.

 

General description of our scholarships:

  • Collaboration scholarship: consists of performing, under the supervision of a responsible person and according to the personal profile of each student, different functions in the areas, departments or services that the School annually determines.

FAQ's

How can I do the University Pre-enrolment?

 

University pre-enrolment must be completed online at the university admissions portal, before the deadline established for each pre-enrolment period. You must follow the specific instructions to register correctly and complete the pre-enrolment. In some cases, you may need to submit documents so that the pre-enrolment is valid and you can be included in the process of allocation of places. See the pre-enrolment calendar.

 

 

What is the cut-off mark to access the EUSS?

 

Places at each university are allocated beginning with the application of the student with the highest mark and continuing in descending order until there are no places left. The cut-off mark therefore corresponds to the last student to obtain a place at a particular university centre. As such this mark is not pre-established but varies every year, as it depends on the number of places available at each centre and number of students applying for them at pre-enrolment.

 

Check cut-off marks here.

 

When and where do I have to enrol?

 

As soon as we receive the list of people assigned to the center we will contact you to invite you to the Welcome Session. It is advisable that students attend this session, since in it we will explain practical aspects about the enrolment process and it is a good opportunity to start familiarizing yourself with the center and its operation. In addition, once the reception session is finished, a documentation verification circuit will be carried out and you will be assigned the day and time to register according to your access route.
 

The registration of new students must be done in person in the Academic Management Office.

 

I cannot attend on my enrolment date, may I sent another person to do it for me?


We recommend that you enrol yourself, since you will have to choose between different options (schedule, partial or complete dedication, if you want to take subjects in English ...) and delegating it to another person can lead to errors. If, despite this, it is impossible for you to come, another person may come with an authorisation. It is enough with a document signed by you that states your authorisation and a photocopy of your ID card and that of the authorised person.

Make sure to leave this person all the documentation prepared and keep easily located for any doubts that may arise.

 

 

What documentation will I need to enrol?

Check the section Access, admission and enrolment to see the necessary documentation according to your access route.

If you have any doubt about the documentation it is important that you contact the Academic Management Office before the day of enrolment.

 

 

Can I choose class hours?

We have three time slots in the first two courses: morning (8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.), afternoon (3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.) and night (5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.). When you enrol you can choose your class hours as long as there are free seats on the sessions of your choice.

In the third and fourth years, classes are mainly in the afternoon.

Night time is designed for people who work and who want to study part-time.

 

 

I am currently working and I want to do my studies slowly. Is there a slow route option?

 

Yes. If you are enroling for the first time in the first year of a bachelor's degree course, you will have to decide whether to enrol as a full-time or part-time student.

 

If you are enroling as a full-time student, you must enrol in all the credits that make up first year (60 credits). In case you have recognised first year subjects from your previous studies, you can complete the registration with subjects from other courses. From the second year onwards, you will need to enrol in between 42 and 78 credits.

If you are enroling as a part-time student, in the first year you must enrol in 30 credits. From the second year onwards, you  will need to enrol in between 24 and 42 credits.

You are allowed to change your study load twice throughout your studies.

 

 

How to make the registration payment?

 

Unlike other universities, in the EUSS we make annual enrolments, that is, you will enrol once and for all the subjects you will study throughout the first and second semester. However, in order to facilitate the payment of tuition, the total amount is divided into two payments that are domiciled in the bank account that you have provided us. The first payment is 60% of the total enrolment and it takes place a few days after completing it, while the remaining 40% is domiciled at the beginning of the month of December.
In case you want to make monthly payments, it is possible to apply for a loan to a financial entity. We have an agreement with Caja de Ingenieros to achieve this with more favorable conditions.

 

 

Can I benefit from any reduction in enrolment?

 

As a center that offers official degrees, our students can obtain reductions that are recognised in the Decree of public prices of the Generalitat de Catalunya:

  • Students in the general or special category of large families
  • Students with a registered disability of 33% or more
  • Students who have obteined a distinction in High School
  • Students who are victims of acts of terrorism, their spouses and their children
  • Students who are victims of domestic violence

If you are in one of these situations, you must submit the supporting documentation on the day of your enrolment.

 

 

Can I get some kind of financial help?

 

As a student of the EUSS you can apply to the following scholarships:

  • Ministry of Educaction general grants (GRAL): these scholarships are granted by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports and in Catalonia are processed online through the Agency for Management of University and Research Grants (AGAUR).
  • Scholarships of the Rinaldi Foundation: the Rinaldi Private Foundation allocates an annual budget for scholarships to facilitate access to the university to those who need it. For more information, click here.

Scholarships from the Ministry of Education and those of the Rinaldi Foundation are compatible.

 

 

I have begun studies at another university, but I want to change to the EUSS. What documentation do I need to recognise subjects that I have already studied in the other university?

 

Students who have completed university courses (subjects / modules) can apply for credit recognition once they have been admitted to other studies. The previous studies may have been at the UAB or any other university in Spain or abroad.

Documentation needed:

  • Application form.
  • Transcript of records.
  • Syllabus of the module or subject, stating the competences, the relevant content, and the number of credits or hours/weeks per semester or year, with the stamp of the previous centre.
  • Curriculum, or subject or module framework required to pass the previous course, issued by the previous centre, with the corresponding stamp.

You must pay a fee for the request for recognition at the time of submitting the documentation. Consult the current rates in the Academic Management Office.

 

 

I've finished an advanced vocational training course. Can I make recognition of credits?

 

Yes, students from some advanced vocational training courses (CFGS) who are starting on our degrees may apply for their CFGS credits to be recognised and added to their UAB academic transcript. Certain subjects on the corresponding degree syllabus will be recognised as passed, in accordance with the ruling of the UAB's Academic Affairs Committee.

The recognition will apply to the whole group of subjects included in this ruling and will be recorded in the students' academic transcripts as "apt" and specifying they have been recognised, which means that the subject is regarded as passed but is not taken into consideration when calculating the global average grade for the academic transcript.

 

You must pay a fee for the request for recognition at the time of submitting the documentation. Consult the current rates in the Academic Management Office.

 

 

Can I modify my enrolment?

 

If you wish to make a change to your registration you can submit a request to the Academic Management Office within the two established periods.

 

In the first period for making requests (September), you may ask for first and second semester subjects to be modified. You can add or delete subjects and the changes in the total amount of money will be reflected in the second payment of the registration.

 

In the second period (February) you may ask for second-semester subjects to be modified and if it will not imply an increase in the registration fee. Therefore, it is not possible to add subjects (except if it is to finish your studies or if you add the Final Project or Internship) and, if you cancel any subject, you will not be refunded.

 

 

Can I cancel my registration?

 

Yes, whenever you request the cancellation of enrolment within the period established in the Administrative Calendar.

You must submit an application in the Academic Management Office detailing your reasons and justify them documentally. The Administration will analyse your application and, in accordance with the UAB Academic Regulations, will decide if a refund is applicable, except for the amount paid for processing your academic transcript.

 

If you have cancelled your registration because the University Admissions Office has given you a place on another course, you will be entitled to a refund only until the date specified on the Decree on public prices, except for the amount paid for processing your academic transcript.

 


If I have not met the requirements at another university does this count at the UAB?

 

Students switching to UAB courses from other universities are subject to the rules on continuation of studies from the moment they join the UAB and their previous academic record at the university of origin is not taken into consideration.

 

 

How many times can I enrol the same subject? How are the calls consumed calculated?

 

You can make up to three enrolments to pass a subject, taking into account that both the "Not evaluated" and "Suspended" qualifications mean consuming a call.

Once you have exhausted the three regular registrations, you have the possibility of requesting an extraordinary registration. In case this application is denied or you consume the extraordinary registration of a subject, you will have to abandon your studies.

 

 

How many credits must I obtain every academic year?

  • 30 credits must be obtained over two years.
  • In order to register for the second year, 12 credits must have been obtained.
  • In order to register for the third year, 60 credits corresponding to the first and second year must have been obtained.
  • In order to register for the fourth year, the entire first year must have been passed and 120 credits obtained for the first, second and third years.
  • In order to register for the Final Project two thirds of the total number of credits on the syllabus must have been obtained.

 

How does the Service of Professional Orientation and Insertion work?

 

The EUSS Service of Professional Orientation and Insertion promotes the integration of our students and graduates by putting them in contact with companies through an online employment application that manages job offers as well as professional internships, and guiding them in the improvement of their skills.

 

In addition, seminars are given on different tools and resources to be used in the search for work and conferences are organised in order to create a meeting place between the business world and the university world.

 

 

Will I be able to continue my studies after I finish my bachelor's degree?
