Access degrees from vocational training cycles

2020-2021 academic year

To access a university course, students coming from higher level vocational training courses (CFGS) should take the following steps:


Access without having to take any entrance exams. The admission grade will be the average obtained during the higher level training cycle they have completed, between 5 and 10 points.


If the student wishes to improve their admission grade, they may take one, two or three subjects from the specific phase of the university entrance exam (PAU). For some courses, it is also necessary to pass a personal aptitude test (PAT).


Complete the university pre-enrolment form on the University Access Portal within the established time period. It is necessary to submit the certificate of grades from the training cycle studied before the pre-enrolment deadline.

It is very important to complete the university pre-enrolment properly and to put the courses you wish to study in order of preference. The student may choose up to eight preferences, although it is not necessary to fill in all eight if you do not wish to do so. Before completing the pre-enrolment you need to be well informed about the course catalogue, the pass marks from previous years, the weightings and the career opportunities.

Depending on the training cycle studied and the degree course chosen, it may be possible to transfer validated credits.


Wait for the allocation of places. The established steps need to be followed very carefully, depending on whether the place is allocated in the first round of allocations, the second or during the reallocation phase.

Students who pass the university entrance exam participate in the pre-enrolment stage as part of the general quota of places. Students with disabilities or high-level or high performance sports people can apply for the reserve places.


Enrol within the established time period once the place has been allocated; otherwise the student will lose their place.
