An official registration calendar for UDC undergraduate and Master’s programmes is determined each year by the university commission responsible, and runs from July to October. As soon as the calendar is approved (some time in May), candidates will be able to access the information on the CIUG website. In the meantime, students may find it helpful to consult the registration calendar for the current academic year (available on the SAPE student advice and support section of the main UDC website), as an indication of what to expect.
For undergraduate programmes with a capped number of places, candidates in Galicia who have completed their secondary education are required to sit the University Entrance Examination coordinated by the Galician Universities Commission (CIUG), a mixed board comprising representatives from the Xunta de Galicia (Galician regional government) and the three Galician universities. Examination sessions are held in June and September each year. Information on entry procedures and requirements is available on the CIUG website or the SAPE student portal.
