There are two different admission procedures for international students:

  1. The early admission process : for UC3M undergraduate degrees is open from November to May for degree-seeking students who have completed (or will complete) their high school studies in foreign educational systems with a competitive GPA.
  2. The most recommended admission process at our university is the International Foundation Program: which is open to students who have completed (or will complete) their high school studies in foreign educational systems, and who wish to better define their academic preferences before starting their undergraduate studies.
    This program, also facilitates the international student's transition to the Spanish university system, while providing cultural and linguistic immersion and acquiring the necessary knowledge to successfully complete their future studies.
