Recommended profile

En base a la experiencia adquirida en la EUDI (Escuela Universitaria de Diseño industrial), tras catorce cursos de funcionamiento, no parece necesario establecer un perfil de ingreso ideal para la admisión de los estudiantes más allá de los perfiles de admisión establecidos actualmente por la ley. Los alumnos que en la actualidad acceden a ésta titulación, desde las diferentes vías de acceso del Bachillerato, dado el carácter interdisciplinar de la formación, no demuestran problemas específicos de formación, más allá de los habituales en una titulación de Ingeniería. No se prevee motivo alguno por el que esta situación pueda cambiar.

General applications requirements

Eligible candidates must match one of the following profiles, in accordance with Art. 2, Royal Decree-Law 1982/2008:

  • Certified completion of secondary education (or equivalent), and pass result in University Entrance Examination
  • Candidates who fulfil the eligibility requirements of university systems in other EU countries, or in non-EU countries with which Spain has an international cooperation agreement that includes this provision
  • Students over 25 with a pass result in the University Entrance Examination, in either its current form or any of its earlier forms
  • Mature students with a pass result in the University Entrance Examination for students over 45
  • EQF Level 4 Certificate in Professional Training, Art and Design Studies, Sports Studies, etc.
  • Undergraduate degree, or other university qualification obtained under previous curricula (Diploma/General Degree Honours Degree, Engineering Degree, etc.)
  • Eligible according to criteria prescribed in statutes prior to 2008 reform, not mentioned above.

Application and admission

Applications for places on UDC degree programmes should be made using the centralised online applications system(NERTA), or by submitting the completed documentation at the appropriate LERD (Documentation Submission and Collection Point).

Students are entitled to submit one application form only, indicating (in descending order of preference) the degree programmes for which they wish to apply. Students may include a maximum of five options, or ten if applying for the same programme in different universities.

Admission procedures and criteria

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.

No existen criterios de acceso distintos de los derivados de la limitación de plazas de nuevo ingreso y los establecidos por la legislación vigente para los estudios de graduado. No existe tampoco ninguna prueba de acceso especial de la titulación. Tampoco se percibe que sea necesario implantar ninguna medida de selección en el futuro.
