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 .
