How do I enrol and register?

Quick guide to accessing and enrolling on bachelor's degree studies


Previous requirements

In general, to access bachelor's degree courses you need to have a high school completion certificate, a vocational certificate, a diploma or equivalent.

If you do not have any of these certificates, you can use one of the access pathways for the over-25s.

You can also access bachelor's degree studies if you already have a university degree or if you come from an educational system abroad.


Entrance tests

If you have completed upper secondary school education , to access the university you will need to pass selection tests, also known as university entrance examinations (PAU) .

PAU consist of a general, compulsory level and a specific, voluntary level, in which you are tested on the subject areas linked to the branch of knowledge of the bachelor's degree you would like to apply for.

If you have already completed one bachelor's degree cycle (CFGS), you can directly access the university without the need to pass any tests. For bachelor's degrees where there is more demand than places, you can improve your entrance score by passing the specific university entrance examination (PAU) stage.

From 25 years of age and if none of the above cases apply, you can enrol through the university's access portal for entrance exams for over-25s , over-40s (with accreditation of work experience), or over-45s .

To access certain bachelor's degrees, you will also need to pass a specific personal aptitude test (PAP) . Enrolment is also formalised through the university's access portal .



Once you have passed the corresponding tests (if required), to access the first year of university studies, you must complete university pre-enrolment .

Pre-enrolment is also formalised through the university's access portal . You can request up to eight preferences in order of your degree of interest. Each preference corresponds to a centre of study (bachelor's degree + university).


Assignment of places

Each centre’s student places are granted starting with pre-enrolled students with the highest entrance grades and by order of grade until all the places are filled.

When assigning places a general quota of places and some reserve places for specific groups are established (over-25s, over-45s, university graduates, disabled students and high-level or high performing sports people).

Once you receive the results of the assignment of places, if you have not been assigned your first preference, you can accept the place or wait for the next assignments and reallocations to attempt to get a place higher up on your list of preferences.



Once you accept the place assigned to you in a study centre as definite, you need to enrol with the centre (faculty or university school) where you will begin your studies.

You are advised to attend the welcome session organised by your centre, where they will give you enrolment documentation, timetables and the enrolment schedule.

At the University of Girona, enrolment is done electronically through the online enrolment computer application using a computer with an internet connection.
