Access requirements

1. Holder of a bachelor's degree or undergraduate degree in Psychology.

2. Having obtained 90 ECTS in specialist health subjects. It must be proven by holders of an undergraduate degree, whether from UdG or other universities, since their studies do not guarantee this compliance in their curriculum, and verification in the form of academic certification sent by their university will therefore be necessary.

The criteria to validate the 90 health credits prior to doing the master’s degree can be found in the following </g>link.

Where students do not fulfil this requirement, they must do the necessary bridging courses to guarantee the 90 educational credits in health psychology (bridging courses can be found in this link). This course will include at least 100 hours (or its equivalent in European credits) of practical experience in the area of health.

Spanish national holders of an undergraduate degree in accordance with the new academic regulations of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) are EXEMPT from the requirement to provide accreditation for these documents, as all reports of Bachelor's degrees in Psychology at national level have this accreditation, whether or not they appears in the academic certification submitted for admission.

In accordance with the requirements of the Bachelor's degree in Psychology, where acquiring knowledge of the English language is a skill to which special emphasis is given, in order to access the master's degree, students must prove a minimum level of B1 in English using the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
