Rules for transfer and recognition of credits

The systems proposed by the respective Universities will be applied in their "Regulations for the Recognition and Transfer of Credits for Qualifications Adapted to the European Higher Education Area EEES".

They are publicly accessible through the web in the following links:

These regulations comply in this respect with the provisions of Royal Decree 861/2010, of 2 July, amending the Royal Decree 1393/2007, of 29 October, and have as principles, in accordance with current legislation, the following:

  1. A system of recognition based on credits (not on subjects) and on the accreditation of competences.
  2. The possibility of establishing, prior to the request of the students, global recognition tables between qualifications that allow a quick resolution of the requests without the need for technical reports for each application and discipline.
  3. The possibility of specifying foreign studies capable of being recognized as equivalent for access to the degree, postgraduate or doctorate.
  4. The possibility of recognizing other accredited professional studies and competences.

The credits corresponding to the Final Project in Bachelor or in Master degrees cannot be accredited or recognised.
