Access to bachelor's degrees from upper secondary school education

Academic year 2023-2024

To access the university, students coming from upper secondary school education have to take the following steps:


Pass the university entrance exam (PAU).

For some courses, students also need to pass a personal aptitude test (PAT).


Complete the university pre-enrolment form on the University Access Portal .

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.


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 you will lose your place.

Students with an upper secondary school education can apply to study a higher level vocational training course (CFGS) and, once they qualify as an Advanced Technician, they may access a university course with the average of the CFGS and even transfer validated credits, provided that the course they wish to start is in some way related to the training they have received.
