Master's in Complex Materials: Thermal Analysis and Rheology

2022/2023 · 60 credits

Access and admission

UDC Master’s studies programmes are open to students with an undergraduate degree or equivalent from a recognised Spanish university, or an equivalent qualification from a recognised third-level institution in the EHEA.

Candidates from non-EHEA university systems are not required to have their qualifications officially recognised, provided the UDC is satisfied that the learner outcomes and status of their non-EHEA qualification are homologous to the equivalent degree in Spain. This is an application-specific statement of equivalence only: under no circumstances may the University’s admission of non-EHEA qualifications be construed as a form of official accreditation.

Candidates from non-EHEA university systems are required to have their qualifications officially recognised if they request access to master's degrees that qualify for a regulated profession.

Applications for UDC Master’s studies programmes will be assessed on the basis of specific entry criteria, including the candidate’s academic qualifications and merits. Information relating to entry procedures and requirements will be included in the programme structure for each degree.

The decision to offer a student a place on a UDC Master’s degree programme is the result of an application-specific evaluation process, and has no bearing on the academic or professional status of the candidate’s existing qualifications.
